Would you find it unusual if you received a Facebook or Twitter post from a friend of yours? Probably not. However, if that friend was no longer alive, you may find that a bit unusual and perhaps startling. While this seems odd to many of us, it may start becoming more common.
Several businesses have started up recently that provide services for posting to social media after an individual has passed away. There are currently a couple different options available. One option is that the individual can actually write postmortem messages that will be posted after they pass away. These messages can be a farewell or a last message of love or any other message that the individual chooses to write. After the individual passes away, these messages will then be posted to social media according to their wishes.
There is also a company that will continue to make Twitter tweets or Facebook posts on your behalf after you have passed away. The company will go through your old posts and mimic your prior writing style in order to make the tweets and posts sound like they were written by you.
Perhaps this is a route that people will start going with there estate planning? We do tell our clients to write messages to their loves ones before they pass away with the thought that this messages will give love, comfort, guidance and direction to those they've left behind. Perhaps it is similar to the desire to leave a social media message (or many messages) after a death. Interesting to see the changes that technology brings!
