The other day, a friend and I were wondering what happens to a user’s social media profiles once he or she passes away. I did some research and discovered that Facebook allows people to submit memorialization requests. Google has also its Inactive Account Manager, which lets you decide what you want to do with your content when the time comes.
However, I came across an app that may fit the bill even better: Sanctri. Luckily, I haven’t had the opportunity to try it. However, I decided to share information here for those who may need it.
The brainchild of Kathy Eldon, Jono Milner, and Dianne Gray, Sanctri lets users build and manage separate spaces (“Sanctris”) on Facebook to celebrate the lives of their deceased friends and family members. Creators get to decide the kind of privacy they want for the pages and who has the ability to contribute and edit them. They can also make donations in people’s memory and add their Sanctris to communities.
Check out the excellent trailer created by the team:
