DeadSocial announced as a finalist in The Next Web's Startup Rally

Press Release  •  Apr 06, 2012 15:09 BST

DeadSocial is a platform that allows anyone to create a calendar of secret, timed messages. These messages are then only distributed on DeadSocial and across the social web (Facebook, Google+, Twitter) simultaneously after the user dies

This allows for communication and creativity to occur, those final messages to be told and for us to extend our digital legacy

DeadSocial is a UK startup selected as one of the final 19 startups to pitch, present and launch their startup at The Next Web Conference in Amsterdam later this month.

Visitors to the site are now able to create personal profiles ahead of the event however the Startup Rally will be the first time that the functionality is released and made “forever free” to the general public.

The competition is divided into two channels - Alpha and Beta. The Alpha channel features 9 new startups (including DeadSocial) launch for the first time, while the Beta channel is all about existing names with big new announcements.

A panel of experts, chaired by Amazon CTO Werner Vogels, will question each startup and judge their pitches to choose this year's winners. The Next Web Conference 2012 will be held on the 25th-27th April. The conference will feature a number of speakers from Adobe to Youtube and attract 1800 digital leaders from across the Globe.

The Next Web’s Conference 2012 will be held between the 25th-27th April and held in  De Gashouder and Transformatorhuis, Westergasfabriek, Klohnneplein 2, Amsterdam.

DeadSocial was announced in March at South by South West (SXSW) in Texas this year. It is a free service that allows humans to extent their digital legacy once they pass away. DeadSocial is part of Really Simple Startups Ltd.
