Facebook Homepage

Ever wonder what will happen to your Facebook profile after death?

New legislation proposed in New Hampshire addresses that issue. It would allow the executor of an estate to control and access social networking pages of the person who dies, according to Yahoo! News.

State Rep. Peter Sullivan came up with the bill that he says would provide closure for a loved one’s family and help prevent bullying after the person dies.

The report says Oklahoma, Idaho, Rhode Island, Indiana and Connecticut have also proposed legislation regarding someone’s online accounts after they die.
