Did you ever stop to wonder what your social media friends and followers would think if your sites went dead — after you’ve gone to the great beyond? Probably not. I know I haven’t.
Fortunately, someone has taken on that task. A Wisconsin-based company, MyEbituary, just launched a website allowing you to create your own virtual resting place, complete with an Ebit — an online obituary that your write. And you get to choose from a number of MyEbituary-provided landscapes, headstones or urns (or upload your own design). Even feel free to add a few headstones for other family members. The company will maintain the site for you.
You provide a caretaker with the codes to take control of your social media sites upon your passing. With just a few posts all of your online buddies will be directed to your final resting place.
There, your friends can visit the site, read your Ebit and electronically sign a guestbook. You’ll even have a chance to leave your “last words” allowing you to communicate from beyond the grave. Too bad you can’t leave multiple messages, one for your friends and others for a particularly nasty boss or an ex.
As a company executive said in a press release, “The conundrum with social media is that these sites are intended to facilitate interaction between users who are alive.” How true. But with MyEbiutary you can ensure that your social media legacy will not be forgotten. And as of now, it’s free.
