Meet John, an avid social media user. John loves to use Facebook for friends and family, Twitter for news and information, LinkedIn for colleagues and classmates, and Instagram to post pictures of his latest adventures. Additionally, John is always trying the latest social media apps on his phone such as Pinterest, Flickr, Tumblr, YouTube, Vimeo and more. One day while John was scrolling through his Facebook feed he began wondering about his social media legacy and realized he didn’t have a plan for his social media accounts. Oh no!
John began wondering how other people are planning for their social media, and he was shocked that everyone he spoke with also didn’t have a plan. So he started researching the different social media network policies on deceased user accounts and discovered that there was no standard protocol. For example, Facebook and Instagram offered the option to memorialize his profiles, while LinkedIn and Twitter only offered the option to close his accounts. John was worried about how his family would handle his social media after death...until he found Profile Peace.
Profile Peace helps social media users like John pre-plan their social media memorialization and closure. So John signed up for our pre-planning service for social media users (coming soon) and was guided through an easy to navigate question series about his social media accounts that generated instructions Profile Peace can use to honor and carry out John’s closure and memorialization preferences. The planning process was so easy that it only took John 30 minutes, and the end result was a well organized and clearly articulated plan that addressed all of his social media legacy concerns.
John’s plan includes all of his memorialization and closure preferences for the 12 social media profiles he has, and he appointed legacy contacts that can notify Profile Peace when John passes away. When one of John’s legacy contacts notifies Profile Peace of his passing, John’s social media wishes are honored exactly how he intended. Not only has John gained security and closure from advanced planning, but he has also alleviated the burden on his family to decide the fate of his social media, which allows them more time to pay tribute to John’s life after death.
John is so thrilled about the plan he created with our pre-planning service for social media users that he tweets out the hashtag #MemorializeMe and tells his friends about Profile Peace. John can now get back to using his social media like he always does with the security and peace of mind that his precious accounts are in good hands no matter what happens to him. John’s initial concerns are now completely gone because he discovered Profile Peace, and he decides to celebrate by going on an adventure and posting his latest pictures to Instagram to share with his followers!
