Using Facebook’s legacy account, you can now post even when you’re dead


Tech wonders shall never end at least not any time soon. Facebook now lets you have a Legacy contact. So what’s a legacy contact? According to Facebook, A legacy contact is someone you choose to look after your account if it’s memorialised. So basically, this friends or legacy account will be able execute actions on your behalf. You can think of this as something similar to a will execution after one has passed away. Information such as funeral dates and other posthumous information.

According to a CNN money report, the legacy contact can’t actually log into your account, change or delete any past posts, read your Facebook messages or remove your friends. But you can let your legacy contact download a copy of everything you’ve shared on Facebook, if you choose.

Facebook isn’t alone in trying to solve the digital data management problem after you die.
In 2013, Google began allowing people to assign beneficiaries of their Google accounts. The Inactive Account Manager will send you a text message and an email if you haven’t logged into Gmail, Google Maps, Google Drive, YouTube or any other Google apps for a set amount of time — between three months and 18 months.
If you don’t respond to Google’s alert, Google will send your Google account data to a trusted contact or contacts. You can choose which Google services they’re allowed to see — or you can just delete you account, if you wish.
