If you go to your security settings on your page, you will see a new option, Legacy Content. You can choose someone to manage your page. They won’t post as you or see your messages, but they can post on your timeline, respond to new friend requests and update your profile photo.

OR, you can choose to have Facebook permanently delete your account when you die.

What will you do? Choose a Legacy Content Manager or instruct Facebook to delete your account?

Plague – The Nework app is addictive

plague

A friend of mine suggested I check out Plague – The Network, a new social networking app. It’s free and available for both iphone and Droid.

Plague is a different way of spreading information. There’s no friending or following. Like a virus, information spreads to the users who are closest to you physically. The “infected” users can spread the information further by swiping up or they can resist the epidemic by swiping down. If your information is interesting, there’s no telling how far it will spread.

The information you share could be a text, photo or video. It’s fun to see how widespread your content goes. The app gives you statistics on how many people you’ve “infected” and the percentage of viewers who spread your message further. It also provides an “infection” map and you can see red blotches spread throughout the world as your content is shared.

The app also allows you to comment on someone’s content and reply to comments others make.

For journalists and others interested in promoting content, this is a fun app to play around with. Have you tried it? If so, what do you think?
