Various ‘goodbye tools’ have entered the digital world that allows users to schedule posts to be posted after they die. A ‘digital executor’ is chosen by the user her/himself who would carry their social media legacy after bidding farewell to the world.
The number of apps that share your tweets and other posts even after demise is gaining more and more popularity with every passing day.
‘DeadSocial’ and ‘LivesOn’ are the most sought after social media junkies these days.
Though some people are not very pleased with the working on these apps and have condemned them since they find them ‘sickening and twisted.’
The apps give users the opportunity to pass their online estate after they’re gone.
Harley Birch died last year at the age of 25. He mom wanted to keep her Facebook page alive to keep her memories alive, but she said that she would herself be ‘really scared’ to see posts appear from Harley herself.
However, various social media addicts are happy that the memory boxes of their loved ones wouldn’t be empty even after they are gone.
According to James Norris, the founder of DeadSocial, “Our ‘goodbye tool’ is like a modern day ‘victorian memory box’. However instead of passing down photos and messages on physical pieces of paper they are passed down in a digital format.”
