Social media after death

ROCHESTER, Minn.- It’s a growing trend that could become state law.

There’s a push to make legislation in states that would give access to your social media accounts and email to your loved one’s if you were to pass away. Some people may use the media as a chance to remember the person who used it, but experts say this can be dangerous. “So, this is something that you are really putting yourself out there. If someone goes into someone else’s page, even if it wasn’t an issue of them being deceased, you’re publically using that person’s face and words and putting it out there for anyone,” Alexandra Slack with MLT Group said.

Other groups are fighting against this push because they believe it’s a breach of privacy.
