dc.description.abstractFocusing on the significant life events of death and grief, YouTube is examined in this chapter as a social media forum in which intimacy is generated between strangers in often fleeting gestures of outreach and kindness. This chapter argues that ‘intimate publics’ constitute a particular shift in the relationship between strangers as anonymity is normatively disentangled from a behavioural code of impersonality. This historically evolving shift in the relationship between strangers is one of the personalised intimacies in modes of address and in the types of subjects/topics publicly exchanged and documented between strangers. Using Mateus’ concept of extimacy (2010), this paper argues that social media sharing prefigures intimacy as extimacy—an orientation towards self-exposure in the outside world of known and unknown others.
