I made i little mistake and wrote a really naive comment on Facebook. Something like this ” It’s maybe a little morbid but also a really coherent question…If someone dies and nobody has his password will this person be alive in the facebook forever?”. Ok…i know maybe the question is not so naive but i never imagine that many cases already existed and people i know had experiences with this matter. This is the link if anyone wants to follow but it’s in portuguese… maybe using the translation…i don’t know. The fact is that it happened to a lot of people it seams and Facebook knows well how to deal with it. You can choose the erase the account or leave it open with a note about the death of that person. That leaves also something intriguing. Is it wrong to leave the person on FB after death? Should this be on wills??? It’s even kinda crazy but it’s happening. So what kind of memories should be left for the living? Maybe something for your friends? For your family? Is it depressing or it’s just a new way of doing things? maybe it’s a new way of life spam and that’s how we’ll keep what’s important for a much longer time. Sites with biographies already are offering the chance to “live forever” in the internet. I’m not sure what to make of all this but it seams to be very positive. If we had the chance to revisit the ideas or our ancestors we would know more about our selves.
