Memorial Feed

Online project

2017 - on going

Memorial Feed is an online project based on a web crawler that randomly searches for the Memorialized accounts that exist on Facebook and indexes them as profile picture and profile hyperlink into the project’s website.

In contrast, profiles cease to show their profile picture as time passes by, for the image-hyperlinks that were initially indexed by the web crawler become outdated and thus stop showing in the project. In the end, the indexed profiles will remain, but imageless.

 

The web crawler is dependent on external payed web services in order to run. For this, it is proposed for people to crowdfund the project so that it can continue its task of assembling all of Facebook’s Memorials together in one place.
