We know nobody talks about it, but if we can't who can? So here goes....
Facebook has had to deal with it, they even have a policy for it. So has every other online community. But where do you get your advice? From a grief counsellor, from a funeral parlour, from your lawyer? When you're dead, you're gone, but today, definitely not forgotten if you're online (and these days who isn't).
So how do you become dead online when you die?
Almost all of us will find ourselves connected to someone that has passed away. So what are the problems that need to be addressed and of course, are their any opportunities? Death is big business and with burgeoning social networks growing in numbers all the time (number 1 demographic on Facebook is boomers) this is an issue that isn't going away anytime soon.
Our panel of experts will look at these issues and your questions in an open forum:
* What happens to your online information when you die?
* What are the digital considerations around the death of a colleague?
* What is the legal status of the information and files in the cloud, of someone who has died and what (if any) are your obligations?
The format will be Open Forum - 5 minutes from each speaker then an hour of robust audience Q&A. Ticket price includes drinks, canapés and a copy of the notes from the evening.
