After death, would you prefer to preserve or delete your social media accounts?


This is a personal choice that we should all discuss with family members. Some people choose to preserve and some prefer to delete. I'm still undecided, which is why I'm asking this question. I have Facebook and Twitter friends who have passed away, but I do like visiting their pages when I'm missing them.

    It is strange when your friends profiles appear, yet it's also a comfort. I am leaning towards delete.

    I'd like my blogs to live on. Not my hubs since HP benefits off of them. That wouldn't be fair which is why HP closes the account. At least that's what I've noticed when a member passed on.

    My thoughts exactly. No surprise there. Especially on Facebook where my friends have passed on, their photos randomly popping up make me sad. I'd prefer to remember them in my own way...not the social networking way.

    Valid point about still reading writers works long after they are gone.

    HP does close the account. I'm referring to other social network sites out of HP. You made some valid points. Thanks for your comment.

    The family posted on my friends account one time. Never again. The reaction from friends was not good.
