Facebook profiles don’t die the same way as people do.
Most of the families contact Facebook to have the accounts of their loved ones closed when they pass away.
Others just leave them so that friends can leave comments and share some wonderful memories.
But when your time comes, would you not want to leave a last word to the world?
Yes, now take Facebook to grave along with you. Well, there’s an app for that.
It’s called “If I Die“.
If I Die
Is a Facebook app that gives users the chance for one last message after they pass away, either by sending a video or text message as a wall posting.
This app makes your social self alive by posting messages on your friends’ wall years after you are gone.
The messages can be published all at once or can even be scheduled over time. A good example is a birthday wish for your child each year.
How it works?
It has just three steps – 1> install the app to your Facebook account 2> create a video or text message 3> and choose 3 trustees from your friends to confirm your death.
When the trustees confirm your death the app publishes all the messages and videos all at once to your Facebook wall or as scheduled by you.
The app asks you the question – “What will you leave behind”?
The makers suggest that you could share a life story – or even a secret you have never shared before, which might come as something as a surprise to your friends and family on Facebook.
The app doesn’t automatically post your “last words”, as said earlier you appoint 3 trustees from your Facebook friends list, who will be messaged when you pass away.
Only when those three have confirmed your death will your final message be passed on, either as a video or a text message, which ever you had preferred.
Creepy as this may seem, the impact of death on our digital life is a growing area of interest.
And I’m sure that far too many people would use it just to spite their enemies, and further desecrate whatever good merit they managed to hustle for themselves while they were alive.
According to the company, the app already has 5,000 likes on Facebook. The makers have not revealed any details about number of users, but they soon expect it to hit more than 100,000 users within a couple of months.
In a way, If I Die gives its users a measure of social media immortality.
Even when they die, their profiles can live on, posting comments and sending personal messages for as long as they have messages to send.
If I Die currently only publishes to a user’s public profile, but the team is working on features to allow for discrete messages and even messages that can be sent to people not on Facebook.
Sometimes, circumstances make it impossible for you to leave your last word.
So just go install this FREE app on your Facebook profile today.
