Taking Care of Your Social Media in the Digital Afterlife

Google is now offering users a way to choose what will be done with their Google activity in the hereafter.  In its “Inactive Account Manager” feature, you can select trusted contacts to receive data from some or all of the following services: +1s; Blogger; Contacts and Circles; Drive; Gmail; Google+ Profiles, Pages and Streams; Picasa Web Albums; Google Voice and YouTube.  Or you can choose to have your data deleted — after three, six, nine or 12 months of inactivity.  Good on Google.
