Now ‘last words’ on FacebookJanuary 14th, 2012 - 8:15 pm ICT by IANS
London, Jan 14 (IANS) Social network Facebook has launched a new application through which an user can post one last message on his “wall” after his death. But there is a catch — three “trustees” have to confirm the person is actually dead.
The free application is called “If I Die”, the Daily Mail reported.
It, however, has no option to automatically post a person’s “last words”. An user has to appoint three trustees from the friends list, who will be messaged when the user dies.
Only when the three friends confirm the death, will the final message be posted.
The application has been made by an Israeli startup company.
Facebook already offers a “memorial” service. Once it is confirmed someone has died, a memorial page is created, which only friends can see.
