    "Facebook rolls out feature for users when they die

    Facebook has added a new setting that gives users the option of having their account permanently deleted when they die.

    Or, if they wish, they can choose to appoint a friend or family member to take control of some aspects of the account after their death..........."

    Is there a setting that automatically deletes Facebook? ;)

    Dunno. Wouldn't touch Facebook with a ten-foot pole.

    But sadly there is no setting I am aware of that overrides the setting that automatically deletes us at some future point in time :-(

    Yeah, I think Facebook may be frequented by the cyber-undead lol. Sadly, the Grim Borker comes to Ctrl-Alt-Del us all eventually.
