7 Digital Afterlife Services to Prepare for Your Death

Death is a natural part of life. And while nobody likes to acknowledge that their time on this Earth is limited, many tools can help you and your loved ones prepare for the inevitable. There are Advanced Health Care Directives for what you want to happen when you’re no longer able to make health decisions, and wills for how you want your physical worldly possessions to be distributed to family members once you pass on.

But what about your digital possessions? Your social profiles and emails as well as your shared photos, videos and blog posts all continue to exist on the Internet after you have shuffled off this moral coil. Several services exist to help manage your transition into the digital afterlife, and we’ve rounded up the best of the best.

    Thanks for this informative post. Many people are not yet familiar with the idea of a digital legacy. There are many online products that can help in managing digital estate. I found one such product mentioned here http://www.wfaa.com/good-morning-texas/Tech-Tuesday-Social-media-wills-151526665.html called http://www.plannedDeparture.com . But the bigger issue is of awareness and posts like these are helpful.
