Guide to a Social Media Afterlife

Have you ever wondered about what happens to your social media accounts when you die or wondered what you should do with a loved one’s accounts after they have passed away?

 Each social media platform whether it be Twitter, Instagram or Facebook has its own rules about deletion, deactivation, data downloading and memorialisation.

Palliative Care Australia has issued a guide to a social media afterlife which provides a very useful summary for considering these issues.

 The Guide can be found at:
