I recently read an interesting article on mashable.com. Basically, the government in the United States would like citizens to write a “social media will”.
According to the U.S. government blog,
If you have social media profiles set up online, you should create a statement of how you would like your online identity to be handled. Just like a traditional will helps your survivors handle your physical belongings, a social media will spells out how you want your online identity to be handled.
Like with a traditional will, you’ll need to appoint someone you trust as an online executor. This person will be responsible for closing your email addresses, social media profiles, and blogs after you are deceased.
What are your thoughts about this? What would you like to see happen to your online identity once you are gone? Does it even matter?
