Access to Family Member’s Facebook Account after They Pass Away

What exactly happens when a holder of Facebook account dies and the people who knew him or her well, such as family members, want to get access to their account?

According to a recently posted broadcast at Lawyers.com the host Matt Plessner interviews Editor in Chief Larry Bodine whether it is possible to gain access to a family member’s Facebook, Twitter or Flickr account after the person died.

Currently there are 1 billion Facebook accounts, 100 million Twitter accounts and 200 million LinkedIn accounts. And the people who have lost a member of their family are surprised when no access will be given as they contact a social media company!?
