The internet never forgets.  If iit's online it'll always be online.  For proof just check my Myspace page.  Or better yet, check yours.

What happens to our FB profile page after we pass?  Nothing.  It'll still be there.  Frozen in time.  And soon, the deceased profiles will outnumber that of the living according to The University of Oxford.  Their study estimates that these "memorial accounts" will surpass active users within fifty years, making Facebook a very eerie place to be.

I'm not sure that I want my FB profile to be frozen in time.  In fact, I do know that I don't want my FB profile to be my forever legacy.  Maybe it's time to plan for a Digital Legacy.
