Facebook's bold new feature you should know about

Facebook's bold new feature you should know about
Facebook

Facebook finally answered the question that it's been getting for years. No, it's not about where all of our personal information is going. It's about what happens to your Facebook account after you die.

While some want their Facebook pages to outlive them, others might want their page taken down. Now, Facebook has finally given everyone a solution to this surprisingly existential question.

Facebook's (surprisingly thought-out!) feature is called Legacy Contact. Appointing a legacy contact gives them the power to manage your Facebook account after you pass on.

You can also tell Facebook to delete your account if your legacy contact informs them of your death.
