About our tutorials & resources
DeadSocial are dedicated in providing the best digital legacy and digital end of life planning tutorials. We write all of our tutorials independently without outside influence from healthcare organisations and pharmaceutical manufacturers.

Navigate to our Online Resources & Tutorials (from the tutorials button)
There are two main ways that website visitors navigate to our resources. The first is through the sections: Legacy builder, Preparing and Bereaved. These are the three main stages that our users (often) fall under when visiting the site.
The second more direct way is through the 'Resources' drop-down navigation. This breaks down and displays most of our tutorials and resources by their specific subject matter rather than the requirements of the website visitor. An image of the interface can be found below. Alternatively to view our tutorials (by subject matter) hover over the 'Resources' button above.
Offline Tutorials & Resources
We have helped write, create and collaborated with a range of publishers, charities and event organisers to produce offline resources. These range from a template for writing a will to leaflets, TV interviews, stickers, videos and books.

Social Media Guides for dealing with death
Each social network has its own rules, regulations and processes when dealing with death. We have provided step by step guides and tutorials to help you manage, maintain, transfer information or even delete individual accounts.
There isn't a best way or 'best practice' to follow when preparing for death on social media sites. DeadSocial aim to educate and provide tools to help cater for each individual's needs.
