Have you thought about what happens all your online info, photos, blogs if you die or are disabled?
Can your Loved ones access your Social Media files?
Do you want them to ?
Is your business website, Facebook page, Google + Page, Twitter account ; Linkedin Page available to those who will run your business?
These and many other very important questions have come to mind this week , after I came across a newspaper Article on the subject.
The Article is linked here – my thanks to Marie Boran
It’s very thought-provoking and as a Lawyer , I need to address this in the context of the service I provide my clients.
But people can help themselves before they come to see me or my colleagues – think about the issue and prepare !
What Can you do with your online life if you die?
The first thing is to look at the settings page in each of the Social Media platforms you use – is there an option to manage an account if it is inactive ?
Check Google’s system – it allows you to name people who will be notified by Google if your account has been inactive for a set period – you decide but the minimum is 3 months- and those people are given options by you to access and download your info OR to simply delete it. You can also tell Google to delete it after a time.
The Article refers to a great Site – Deadsocial.org – try the Resource page.
I’ll be looking at this in greater detail on my website , so come back and let’s work through this together !!
