Should your Facebook page be deleted after you die?
Would you prefer if your Facebook profile was deleted after you die? Or would you prefer if it lived on as a memorial? When YouGov asked British people their thoughts on this issue, the majority of older Internet users wanted their Facebook pages deleted. This was especially evident among users over 60 - 71 percent of them wanted their profiles deleted. Among younger users, it was more mixed. 38 percent of 18-24 year olds wanted their page frozen while 23 percent wanted legacy contact.
This chart shows the percentage of people in the UK giving their thoughts on what should happen to their Facebook page after they die.
