What is a Facebook Legacy Contact and What Can They Do?

What is a Facebook Legacy Contact and What Can They Do?

A Facebook 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 profile (example: to share a final message on your behalf or provide information about a memorial service).
    • Note: If your timeline and tagging settings don’t allow anyone other than you to post on your timeline, your legacy contact won’t be able to add a pinned post to your profile once it’s memorialized
  • Respond to new friend requests (example: old friends or family members who weren’t yet on Facebook)
  • Update your profile picture and cover photo
  • Request the removal of your account

(This is from the Facebook site)

This is so important because I myself have posted Happy Birthday wishes on someone’s account that had already passed. In fact, I have quite a bit of friend’ accounts still on my list that is no longer here.  I use to wonder how Facebook would ever remove an account? Well, they have a provision for it to be properly handled.
