I've got another good end-of-year task for you, and I actually need to do some of this, too. If you follow us on Facebook or Instagram, you might have seen us make a couple of posts about planning for what happens to your social media accounts. Social media might seem like something trivial, but we all know by now its influence on the world. At the same time, personal accounts can have sensitive information, or they could be used abusively. Would you like your Facebook to be managed by a friend or child as a tribute wall? Or, would you cringe at the thought of a family member being able to control and dig into your account? Either way, the social media platforms each have their own systems for how your profile is managed if you die. Many of these companies give you the right to control what happens. Take a look, and take a few minutes to get your preferences set in the tech titans’ systems.
