STOCKHOLM, Sweden, May 23 (UPI) -- A new service by a Swedish design student will allow people to have a final Tweet or Facebook status update made after they die.
Lisa Granberg told The Local her service will allow friends and family members to have the information necessary to access social networking accounts belonging to people who have died.
"We live a lot of our life online these days," she said. "There are lots of cases today where friends and relatives of young people who've committed suicide or died in other ways can't do anything to alter the information found online about whoever died."
Granger's Webwill service will allow registered users to decide how they want their social networking profiles to change following their death. Webwill can also allow users to create a final blog post on Blogger, or have their goodbye e-mail sent to friends.
"The service is designed to let the individual decide what will happen with their online profiles after they're gone," she said.
Granberg developed Webwill as her final thesis at Beckmans College of Design.
