Collective Mortality

Consumers turn to social experiences to deal with death

Implications - The fear of facing death alone can be an isolating experience. In an effort to alleviate some of this fear, people have been opening up the conversation around death to include as many people as possible. This shift suggests that collective experiences dealing with grief and mortality ultimately help people shoulder the burden of coming to terms with devastating events.
