Most people don’t consider their social media accounts valuable, but they are a genuine digital asset for you to consider. If you would like to deal with this, then it helps to view various social media accounts and decide on the turnover process. When using Lexikin, you can leave specific wishes, or even logins, for your social media accounts, making life far easier for your family should you be gone.
A failure to do this does mean that they will likely be de-activated. This could cost you many years’ worth of hard work and authority, and might hamper other digital assets you have left behind, not mention all those amazing memories and your unique digital personality, gone. Therefore, it pays to have your social media accounts managed in the right way when you start moving forward and asset planning.
If you believe that you wish to make a significant alteration to your social media campaigns then you can simply leave instruction before passing on. This means that you can guarantee the safety, prosperity and comfort of a business moving forward in the near future, or protect a personal account. You should try and include all provisions for your social media accounts into your Will or Lexikin account, along with any wishes to be carried out accordingly.
To make sure that your message can live on after you die, most social media accounts allow a legacy to be set up. If you wish for your social media persona to live on after you pass on, you can use this to make sure that this is going to happen. By making it a Legacy Contact page, it becomes easier for people to leave tributes and love to the person who has passed on.
The person who you leave in charge then has full domain – they can manage the account, post updates, send messages, edit the profile and do anything you would normally have been able to. The digital afterlife might be a rather morbid thought, but if you have any kind of social media legitimacy it’s something you shouldn’t ignore.
However, being the legacy owner of an account has less power and control than just logging in and taking full, normal control. For example, a legacy owner cannot make changes to anything that was posted prior to their engagement with the account. They also can’t edit what other people post on the page.
Crucially, legacy users can’t just delete the account so if you fear your legacy will be gone regardless, this removes that potential from the table.
One of the most effective parts of using this service is that it offers a simple, effective and easy way for you to make sure that once you pass on your social media future can remain. Many of us have strong and vibrant social media lives and it pays to make it more accessible for all. Even when you die, all your friends and family are likely to still want to pay you, and their memories of you, a visit once in a while.
They can be made aware of your legacy and ensure that you can start to really understand and appreciate what you’ve gone through. Now, family can ensure that your legacy can live on even after you’ve left this world.
