Worried that your Facebook friends might not know of your untimely demise? If it comes to that, maybe you aren’t that close to all of those friends, acquaintances, and random chicks you banged in college then you thought. But if that is the case, you can now leave a special message for your Facebook Friends via the Ifidie app for Facebook. Through the app, you leave in charge three trustees to activate your final message. Which can be in the form of a video or a text message. It seems more and more that people are using the internet as a form of saying goodbye to friends, family and the world in general. And frankly, while I am a firm believer in letting people know how much you care for them everyday if you can, this can be a way for people to reach out to those friends and family again. Or even as a way to let someone who you have lost touch with know that you never stopped thinking of them. Either way, a great idea that yours truly will be taking advantage of. Check out the ifidie video and description:
What will happen to your Facebook profile after your passing? if i die is the first and only facebook application that enables you to create a video or a text message that will only be published after you die. It could be your life story, a secret you haven’t shared before or even a will.
After installing the app, the user is asked to choose trustees from his Facebook friends list, those trustees will receive a message about their important task – confirm your death.
Only when all 3 trustees confirm the passing, the pre-recorded or written message will be published on the deceased Facebook profile (wall posting).
