“Memento mori” (remember you will die) We need this reminder because we act as if we don’t. Facebook is a perfect example as there is no simple way to handle a deceased Facebook profile. Oklahoma is addressing this issue with a new law
Will It Work?
However, according to legal experts, the law is based upon the dubious concept that users own their profiles when its depends upon the user agreements which often state that the social networking website owns your profile.
Perhaps there is another way to approach this issue which is to require all websites to include provisions for handling user information in case of emergency. We are already use to providing landlords, workplaces and other entities with emergency contact information – perhaps this is the proper paradigm for such issues.
