As more of us want the freedom to use WiFi and services while we fly, yesterday’s GAO Report can be a bit scary as far as Security and Safety when traveling on Commercial Aircraft. The Threat is realized and movement to find a safer more secure system is working.
It’s that subject that nobody really wants to talk about however it is something that is being addressed and can provide a little piece of mind to Facebook Users on what happens to a users Facebook account when the unfortunate happens. Today, Facebook introduced what they are calling Legacy Contacts.
Users can easily choose a legacy contact, either a member of the family or a friend that can manage the account of a Facebook User when that user passes away. Again, a great deal of trust would need to be exercised as that person has the power to notify of the passing, Facebook will then Memorialize the account and allow the Legacy Contact Chosen to “Write a post to display at the top of the memorialized Timeline (for example, to announce a memorial service or share a special message), Respond to new friend requests from family members and friends who were not yet connected on Facebook Update the profile picture and cover photo.”
According to a release from Facebook, The legacy contact will not be able to log in as the person who passed away or see that person’s private messages. Facebook staff has stated this was done after talking to members who experienced loss and wanted to offer more to those grieving than the basic memorialized viewable only accounts offered in the past.
All of this is not required and the option is also available for Facebook Users to elect to just have the account deleted upon their passing. This is all coordinated through the settings tab, then the security tab. Users will see Legacy Contacts as pictured in our screen capture this morning.
The Service according to Facebook is launched in the United States first and is hopefull to expand to more countries over time.
In an effort to further protect privacy and maybe avoid litigation, the good folks at Google have announced that users have the option of requesting blurring of their Home which may appear on the Google Street Views. An Algorithm is in effect which can automatically blur faces and licence places and if the blurbots at Google Maps miss your mug, you can request Google Maps to Blur you.
The Same can now be done with property such as Homes, RV’s. Planes, Boats etc. The sad thing about this, if you wanted to look at a childhood home on Google StreetView, former place of work or even the Exes house to see who they are dating now – this might be impossible if the owner of the home request the Blur!
