    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.

    That's a bit odd imo. I suppose it makes sense to have something like this being possible, but I don't know if I would really care. If I die, let the spammers take it over, haha!

    I think this is how the future will be. We will be identified by our facebook or something, and when we die this sort of thing happens. Anyways I don't mind this sort of thing happening, because when I die, I'm dead. I have no concern for my facebook when I go.

    I suppose it's possible it could become a sort of way to identify people. Maybe it'll become an online identifier that people must use, kind of like a digital ID or something. Either way, I doubt my family would even know how to go about messing with my facebook anyways.

    I think it's a great idea. Facebook seems to be the future of the internet, and I think we'll be infused with it in some way. Not infused as we'll be literally infused, but it'll be a part of our daily lives even more. 

     

    As for this, I think it's okay. Will I use it, not sure, but I think it could make for a way to respect the dead.

    I'll admit, it's a cool idea to have, but I doubt I would even use it.
