Facebook – After You’re Gone

Did you know that you can assign a “LEGACY CONTACT” within Facebook in the event that your time on earth is up?

According to Facebook’s web site: A legacy contact is someone you choose to look after your account if it’s memorialized. Once your account is memorialized, your legacy contact will have the option to do things like:

  • Write a pinned post for your profile (ex: to share a final message on your behalf or provide information about a memorial service)
  • Respond to new friend requests (ex: old friends or family members who weren’t yet on Facebook)
  • Update your profile picture and cover photo
  • You also have the option to allow your legacy contact to download a copy of what you’ve shared on Facebook…

Your legacy contact can’t:

Log into your account
Remove or change past posts, photos and other things shared on your Timeline
Read messages you’ve sent to other friends
Remove any of your friend.

Go into your Account Settings and Select Security. Nearly to the end of the list in the center of the page, select Legacy Contact and follow the instructions.
