New App Takes Care of Your Social Media Sites in the Event of Your Death

New APP Takes Care of Your Social Media Sites in the Event of Your Death

There has been some discussion on social media sites about the future of your profile in the event of your untimely demise.  With a number of friends recently passing it has been a much more real question.  What happens to your social media sites in the event that you die?

Pat Kennedy, and a few others, brought this question to the forefront on Active Rain after a few members passed away, and it's a great question.  I have one friend who passed away two years ago, and her Facebook profile is still active.  I haven't had the stomach to delete it, but it probably should acknowledge her passing for those out of the area that have no idea why she doesn't respond to their posts.  

On the site, Mashable Social Media, they displayed a new APP this week called, "If I Die."  This application allows three friends who have been assigned as your trustees to post to your Facebook site.  They are supposed to fulfill your last wishes.  It could be a message from you, pictures or whatever you decided to have the world know at the end.  It's a great idea, and it is definitely a modern day necessity.  Check it out.

Incredible! Morbid - but a great idea! We build social media friendships from all over that actually become a distant family to us. Great idea! Thanks for the info.!

I'm with you on the morbid part, Kathy, but it is a great idea.

Mike yes this question is being discussed more and more. There should be some acknowledgement that the account is no longer active so that a consumer won't be looking for a response, that will never come.

Good point, Jennifer.

A good app to say your final words on your terms.
