During 2017 – Choose your legacy contact for your Facebook – Don’t loose them!

A legacy contact is someone you choose to look after your account if it’s memorialized. Once your account is memorialized, your legacy contact will have the option to do things like:
  • Write a pinned post for your Facebook profile (ex: to share a final message on your behalf or provide information about a memorial service)
  • Respond to new friend requests (ex: old friends or family members who weren’t yet on Facebook)
  • Update your profile picture and cover photo
You also have the option to allow your legacy contact to download a copy of what you’ve shared on Facebook, and we may add additional capabilities for legacy contacts in the future.
Your legacy contact can’t:
  • Log into your Facebook account
  • Remove or change past posts, photos and other things shared on your Timeline
  • Read your messages
  • Remove any of your friends
Learn more about memorialization and how to add a legacy contact to your account.
If you’re a legacy contact, learn how to manage a memorialized profile.
Note: You must be 18 or older to select a legacy contact.
I did this for my Dad’s account. Personally think it’s an excellant idea.
