Did you know………Facebook allows you to add a “legacy contact” who can take limited control of your account if you pass away? You also have the choice as to whether you would like your Facebook account permanently deleted or it can be memorialised, allowing family and friends to post messages of remembrance.

It takes moments to set up the above. On your facebook home page at the top right, click on settings, then choose manage your account. You will see the selection to nominate somebody as explained above.

Twitter says that in the event of a user death it will work with a person authorised to act on behalf of the estate, e.g. an executor or a verified immediate family member to shut down an account. They are likely to ask for i.d. and the death certificate.
