Managing your digital legacy

If you use social media, such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, you will need to think about what happens to your accounts after your death. Each social media platform has different rules for deactivating accounts, while some allow your account to be turned into a memorial page. It is a good idea to leave a list of all your accounts, passwords and instructions with someone you trust, so they can manage your ongoing digital presence according to your wishes.

Palliative Care Australia has produced a Guide to a Social Media Afterlife. You can find it at here.

Inclusion of a service in the directory does not imply endorsement of the service by Cancer Council ACT.
