Facebook now has an option for when users die, to let someone else take control of your Facebook profile. You can pick anyone, family member or a friend. You also have an option to have your account deleted when you die, which is new to facebook I guess.
Is this good? Personally I doubt I'd care what people do with my account after death. Some people I know have passed on and I had them as friends, and all that ever happened to their accounts was that someone hacked it and used it to spam. I figure that's how my profile would be, then again I doubt facebook will be around forever.
