LivesOn uses artificial intelligence algorithms to analyse users’ online behaviour and their style of writing.

This allows it to scour the internet to post the kinds of links its users like, as well as mimic their manner of communicating and favourite appropriate tweets to create a personal digital afterlife.

An early post on the LivesOn Twitter feed pronounces: ‘God doesn’t exist, servers do. Sign up to the real after life.’

But as bizarre as it might seem, LivesOn is only the latest service to offer to continue your social media life after death.
