What Happens to Your Facebook Profile When You Die? https://abt.cm/1zvs9k5 What Happens to Your Facebook Profile When You Die?
Facebook actually has an FAQ section dedicated to the three options people have with a deceased individual’s account:
- memorializing the account,
- requesting to delete the account, or
- downloading the contents of the account, and then having it deleted.
Also, there is a Facebook app you can download, called “If I die,” that you can set up at any point before your death to help put your social accounts in order and send out a last message if you wish.
The MIT AgeLab http://agelab.mit.edu/ The MIT AgeLab was created in 1999 to invent new ideas and creatively translate technologies into practical solutions that improve people’s health and enable them to “do things” throughout the lifespan.
Equal to the need for ideas and new technologies is the belief that innovations in how products are designed, services are delivered, or policies are implemented are of critical importance to our quality of life tomorrow.
Based within MIT’s School of Engineering’s Engineering Systems Division, the AgeLab has assembled a multi-disciplinary team of researchers, business partners, universities, and the aging community to design, develop and deploy innovations that touch nearly all aspects of how we will live, work and play tomorrow.
Plan your digital afterlife : Google https://bit.ly/YhHlN9 Plan your digital afterlife with Inactive Account Manager
Not many of us like thinking about death — especially our own. But making plans for what happens after you’re gone is really important for the people you leave behind. So today, we’re launching a new feature that makes it easy to tell Google what you want done with your digital assets when you die or can no longer use your account.
The feature is called Inactive Account Manager — not a great name, we know — and you’ll find it on your Google Account settings page. You can tell us what to do with your Gmail messages and data from several other Google services if your account becomes inactive for any reason.

I wonder if, in a hundred and fifty or so years when I finally shuffle off this mortal coil, where I’ll end up being memorialized online. I hope it’s somewhere calm and serene like 1000Memories, and not somewhere that is just trying to gouge cash out of my family. I like this project, I hope it succeeds.

For too many older people, however, this is impossible. Problems such as inadequate income and housing make their lives a misery. Worries about issues such as long-term care cause them great anxiety. Lack of accessible transport, shopping and leisure facilities can leave them housebound and isolated. Negative attitudes and stereotypes often mean they are not valued in their communities.
At Age Concern we find effective ways to deal with these issues.
