Will you live on after your dead and buried?

If you have a social Media account then your life may go on in perpetuity.
Figures released yesterday showed that in 2016, 8000 users died daily. 428 an hour. In the first 10 years of Facebook, 30 million users died.
Today? 312,00 users die every month.
Unless you totally delete your account before you die then your account content will remain.
A third party can request the removal of your inactive account but a Death Certificate must be produced.
Even if you manage to completely deactivate your account, those people who interacted with you, exchanged Photos/Messages with you, that content will remain on their account.

I've often thought about that and wondered if they ever got deleted, thanks for the explanation. This is my only social media and since it's anonymous it will just remain. Maybe people will like my stories.

[@423488,curiosi] Some will read my stories and be influenced no doubt.

[@423488,curiosi] That is how I think as well. Let my content live on in perpetuity. Who knows? In 500 years Historians may look at my account and see how beautiful Australia once was.😃
