what happens when…

What happens when a person dies?

no, not on the thological / phylosophical point of view.

what happens to their interactions; their history on google, their facebook profile, their flickr pictures. Is this a new sort of ‘affection inheritance (sorry for the bad translation) a poet was thinking about 2 centuries ago?
