Government suggests internet users consider social media wills

Posted on May 31st, 2012 No Comments

The U.S. government is recommending that people include how they want their social media accounts handled after their deaths in their wills.

The person who you appoint to be executor of your social media sites should be given a list of the sites where you have a presence. The list should include your username and password for these sites as well as what steps you wish to be taken with them.

Many sites allow a “memorial” mode for profiles of deceased members. This allows friends to visit the page but does not allow new posts to be made.

If you need help drafting your will, contact the wills lawyers of Garg & Associates, P.C., at 281-362-2865.
