What Happens To Your Social Media Accounts When You Die?
What happens to your social media accounts when you die?
No one likes to think about dying, but experts suggest you give some thought to the future of your online presence, should something happen to you.
It’s a morbid but necessary question in today’s digital age.
ABC Radio News recently ran a story about the subject.
Twitter, for example, will automatically deactivate your account after six months of inactivity, but if you want to deactivate a lost friend’s page, they’ll need a death certificate.
Facebook won’t shut down your page until a friend reports your death or memorializes your page.
Experts recommend you check each site’s policy and make up a will of sorts to organize your “digital demise.”
That way it’ll give family and friends closure.
