VIRTUAL LIFE
AND DEATH

Interesting article on the BBc website about
what happens to our virtual bits and
pieces after we die.

Everything you post on the net stays there as long
as the internet exists but does anyone own your
blog, Facebook page, photos etc
after you're gone?

"There's no standard practice across the industry
yet. There are no norms for how digital assets are
passed on to heirs," says Kaliya Hamlin, one
of
Digital Death Day's organisers.

Obviously as long as the person/s who inherit
you have all the passwords they can delete
or update the pages as they see fit.
Sites like
Legacy Locker can take
care of it for you.
