Thoughts about dying

By now, everyone knows that Facebook will memorialize your page if you die. That is, if someone reports to them that you’re dead. They delete your status updates, etc., so not everyone wants this done.

But have you ever really thought about the fact that if you die, your profile picture will be your profile picture forever?? It will be the face of your online tombstone.

I think I only have one Facebook friend who has passed away at this point, and his “About Me” was “Dream as if you’ll live forever, live as if you’ll die today.” His photo is with his friends.

Not to be morbid, but we’re all terminal, and some of us go sooner rather than later. So with this in mind, pick your next profile picture carefully…
