Tech News, I read it every day. Social Media, clearly I am a part of it.
Google, Twitter, and Facebook have united the world in new and unexpected ways.
What happens to your digital information after you die? I read an article to day about a Google service that will follow your wishes about your Digital Information Footprint. For example, after a period of inactivity it will delete certain things, or give your executor your passwords etc.
Twitter has a service that will learn what you tweet about and tweet for you - after you die!
Some time ago, a woman I was close to passed away. Her children and some friends still post on her FB page. There are things I want to tell her, and in a way I still can. A loss in our extended family has brought this topic even closer to home.
This is a real situation, one I never thought about when I first started blogging, tweeting, etc. What will my digital footprint be after I am gone. Will companies make a new living archiving the digital footprints of loved ones so that we can remember them....a new kind of history that lives on forever?
