None of you would ever know. Would you? My blog would stay inactive until my debit card was cancelled and my Typepad account expired. It would be a mystery unless you checked my Facebook page. I’m assuming some friends might comment on the wall – which in itself might become the ‘new’ obituary.
That just feels wrong somehow.
So here’s what I think. I think I should tell someone else about my password and my social media profiles. I think it should be very easy for someone to access my profile on such an occasion and mention I’ve passed on. I’m sure some people would want to know (wouldn’t you?)
Social Media is such an important part of my life. It would be tragic if nobody ever knew I had passed on. If I died relatives and loved ones would be able to access my home, contact my bank and otherwise represent my interests. So why not my Social Media Profile? Shouldn’t we treat our online presence and our online contacts, with a little more respect?
