The Digital Afterlife
We now raise this issue when preparing wills for clients so that steps can be put in place for the executors to easily deal with "digital assets” after death in addition to tangible assets.
You may also wish to think about whether or how you wish to be memorialised through your online personality. This might include a notification to your contacts of your death, or the creation of a memorial page such as that currently offered by Facebook as well as a number of dedicated websites. Or, you may simply provide that your online profiles be disabled in a timely manner and protected from misuse.
