WebWill Manages Your Digital Death

Dec 20, 2009 | Posted by: Iria | Full story: technologyexpert.blogspot.com

Wonder what is going to happen to all the digital traces of your life after you pass away? To be honest, most of it will probably be available, and searchable, at least until they are de-indexed by search engines. However, a new start-up called WebWill hopes to at least close off the social networking parts of your life.

If we don't have any personal information when you die, then what are we living people going to talk about "behind your back?"

Be sure to hang onto your neuro-transmitters.

Otherwise , telemarketers will hound you until the end of time in the afterlife.

I have a couple of friends on social networks who have passed away and it's kinda weird seeing them on my friends list. I'm just wondering.... would there be some sort of notification?.... like a virtual funeral of this person's profile??

I actually have a young teen friend on one social site who passed away a couple months ago and her mom periodically posts under her log in. It's kinda weird seeing her posts, but I can't even imagine losing a child and how I would deal with deleting their social site.:(

That's sad and I would agree with you feel, but there are some people that find solace in deleting and removing all reminders... I guess we are find our way.
