Facebook after death

Mourning

Mashable posted this article last month about a new Facebook app called If I Die. Basically, it allows you to prepare messages and Facebook posts that will appear on your profile after three “trustees” – trusted Facebook friends – have independently confirmed your death. There is currently no limit on how many posts you can prepare, and they could continue to appear for a considerable length of time after your death.

As I blogged about back in December 2010, there are a number of services available to people who want to ensure that something is preserved online for their friends and loved ones. If I Die seems to be the latest offering in this vein, for those who want to keep their digital afterlives within Facebook.
