Facebook After Death

Have you ever thought about what would happen to your Facebook after you die? Would your family or other loved ones look into your old messages and investigate to look for any sort of a secret life that you may have? Would they say anything? If so, what would they say?

With “If I Die“,  you can attempt to make things work your way. It works by you creating future posthumous status updates  for the unfortunate day that you die. You then tell the app which friends you trust enough to verify when you’ve kicked the bucket. So on the day that you die, these status updates are released to the the world.

What do YOU think about this? Is it too much? Is it simply feeding a need?

    Genius. Some may think it’s a bit much, but for me, this is awesome. I may get this app when I’m done writing this, actually. It could be a useful tool, when you die your facebook page could be seen as a kind of memorial–a remembrance page, maybe. While some people who miss their loved ones will visit the cemetery, it could be even better to visit their old facebook page; so much of their personal information, pictures, last written word, etc would be on there.

    What an odd concept! I had not even heard of this app until I read this post. At first, I thought “this is way over the top!” However, as I looked at the article about the app and came to the part of a man with cancer using the app to leave messages for his daughter’s birthday each year, it made me realize that maybe this idea is not so crazy after all.
