Now relatives or friends of the deceased are able to send a request to the management of the social network and receive username and password. So far, this service is available only to U.S. residents, but Facebook staff promise to provide the users of other countries with this capability too, reports with reference to Geek Snack.

The heir of the account can not access the full capacity of the page of the deceased. These Legacy contacts will have access to a few basic functions in your profile. They will be able to manage certain parts of your account, such as changing the profile picture and the cover photo to reflect the new nature of the account. The Legacy contact will be able to publish information about a memorial service, download the archive of your profile and manage friend requests sent to the profile. The Legacy contact will also be able to pin a post to your timeline, most likely the post which announces your death, Geek Snack reports.

It should be recalled that a year ago at the celebration of the 10th anniversary of the founding of the social network, the Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg told about his plans for the next 10 years.
