Ways to manage social media accounts when someone dies

How to manage social media accounts when someone dies
Unfortunately, there is no easy, “one-click” way to shut down all social media accounts. You might think that accounts would be closed automatically after a period of inactivity, but that’s not always the case.

Facebook has a setting where you can appoint a legacy representative to manage your account after your death. If you don’t appoint anyone then Facebook will keep the account active until they are notified otherwise.

Twitter will close the account after six months of inactivity.

If you’re looking to close down the social media accounts of someone who has passed away, it’s important to understand the procedures and requirements, especially as many people have their social media accounts linked to various payment methods.

Here are some official links below on closing accounts;
