Many of us have a strong online presence on sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ to name a few. About 1 billion us and what do we all have in common? We are all going to die. Have you ever wondered what would happen after your final status update? Unfortunately, I’ve seen it happen as friends have passed away and sometimes hours after a status update on Facebook. It’s so unreal because their life stopped ticking yet you could still read their thoughts, view their saved memories as photographs, and see others say goodbye.
What happens to their online presence after that? Facebook allows you to Report a Deceased Person’s Profile which only allows friends to view the deceased one’s profile and keep viewing and posting on their wall. I’m not aware of what other sites do, but if you do, let us know in the comments.
The following video from Ted Talks discusses this topic in more detail.
