DeadSocial are one of the 19 finalists of the TNW BizSpark Startup Rally to present at #TNW2012

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 explores communication and creativity, allows for final messages to be told to our wider networks and for us to extend our digital legacy.

Today DeadSocial was announced as one of the final 19 startups chosen to pitch, present and launch their startup at The Next Web’s ‘Startup Rally’ in Amsterdam later this month.

The Startup Rally will be the first time that DeadSocial open their “forever free” platform to the general public. Visitors to DeadSocial ahead of the Startup Rally are now able to create personal profiles and claim their unique username ahead of the event.

The Startup Rally competition is divided into two channels - Alpha and Beta. The Alpha channel features 9 new startups (including DeadSocial), 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 and journalists from across the Globe.


DeadSocial was announced in March at ‘South by South West’ (SXSW) in Texas this year before becoming finalists in the ‘London Web Summit’ Startup Competition. DeadSocial is a free service that allows humans to extent their digital legacy once they pass away. DeadSocial is a UK Startup and part of Really Simple Startups Ltd
