New App Lets You Update Your Facebook From The Grave

Why let a minor inconvenience like death stop you from complaining about the weather?
If I Die is an app that will update your Facebook after you aren’t around to. Here’s how it works: You install the app, choose some friends who will confirm your death and set up a bunch of status updates to be posted posthumously. Upon confirmation, the updates can be posted to your profile all at once or on a schedule.
Yes, your Facebook can be scheduled to update over time.
That means “you” can continue to publish updates days, weeks, months or even years after you’re gone. While the company who developed the app no doubt had good intentions, I can’t help but think of devious uses for scheduled updates, like convincing my friends and family I’m haunting them.
Would you honestly want to receive messages from a loved one, or feel comfortable with a Facebook app posting as you posthumously?
