Facebook offers the option to appoint a legacy contact. A legacy contact is someone you choose to look after your account if it's memorialized. Memorialized accounts are a place for friends and family to gather and share memories after a person has passed away. To help plan your social media legacy, learn more about memorializing accounts and appointing a legacy contact through the following FAQs:
What will happen to my Facebook account if I pass away?
What is a legacy contact and what can they do?
I'm a legacy contact. How do I manage a memorialized profile on Facebook?
Facebook and Instagram are the only two social media networks that allow the option to memorialize an account as of the date of this blog post. They are clearly thinking ahead, and are making plans for online life after death. If and when the other social networks introduce a memorialization option, we will write a blog post on it and update our service offering accordingly. If you know a story about a memorialized social media account, please share with our community in the comments section below!

My husband Anthony diliberti has a Facebook account and he committed suicide two years ago today this is before any of the legacy settings I too have a Facebook account under my maiden name Kelly natoliI would really like to memorialize his page cuz before he died he was very angry and depressed and deleted most of his friends this way people could always remember him and go on his page and post or however it works cuz I don't even remember his password to even go in there and fix it myself I'd really appreciate if you can get back to me I left my email at email@example.com's just been a long road for me and I haven't been ready to address this but I think it would be nice to him or memorialize his account I wouldn't want it to be deleted it's bad enough I can't even go in there and change the pictures I wish I could. especially I just found out I'm going to be a grandma so he's going to have a grandson one day looking at that stuff so appreciate anything you could do thank you have a nice day remember
