Modern day society means social media. But what happens to yours, a friends, family or a loved one’s social media accounts when they die?
Facebook; a social media platform many people have an account on.
A question that has come to forefront is about “what happens to your Facebook account when you die?”
Seeing a social media account of someone who has passed away (whether recently or not) can be upsetting for a grieving family, friends and relatives. That grief can then be made worse by automated updates and notifications which can occur; such as birthday reminders.
Other people however, may find it comforting to see old photos, video clips and memories of a friend or loved one. They may feel it is like the person almost living on forever in cyberspace.
Either way, it’s important to know what can be done with social media accounts when someone dies.
