From NY Times: Facebook allows you to designate a friend or family member as a “legacy contact.” If you want to have your account memorialized after you die, this person basically serves as the executor of your Facebook account by managing your profile and can update your cover photo and profile photo, post information and accept new friend requests.

From NY Times: You’ve probably thought about what will happen to your finances, your possessions and maybe even your real estate when you die. But what about your Facebook account? Or your hard-drive backups?
From The Content Strategist: Sometimes it feels like the entire marketing world is tweeting simultaneously. You can almost feel the wave of social media managers strolling into the office with their coffee, sitting down at 9 a.m., and scheduling a flood of tweets to go out every 30 minutes for the next eight hours.

From Customer Think: Guide your employees through the often treacherous waters of what they can and cannot do as they engage with social media. IBM's social computing guidelines are an example.
From David Meerman Scott: Rather than saying "no," the legal and HR staffs, communicators, and management of TNT have created an environment of "yes." Notice how clean and simple the TNT employees Social Media Guidelines document is. No Times New Roman 12-point single-spaced legal document here! Also notice that it is available to anyone on the public web.
