The Digital Legacy Association have developed a social media will template. This is free for members of the general public to download, save and print. Once the social media will has been completed it can be used to help ensure that your end of life and digital legacy wishes are adhered to.
The template is provided in a Microsoft Excel document (if you do not use Microsoft Excel it can also be imported and used in Google Docs or by using LibreOffice).
Once completed, the document will not be a legally binding document but instead a statement of preferences. Due to the nature of the internet and each online platforms ‘terms of service’ it is often impossible for peoples online wishes to be legally binding.
Social Media Will Template – File types
We have published our Social Media Will in two formats. They contain exactly the same content but the file type differs.
- Social Media Will Template (Excel, recommended)
- Social Media Will Template (PDF, suitable for those with PDF editors)
Social Media Will – Support
At the bottom of social media will template there are a number of links that click through up to date information about what can and cannot take place within each device or social media platform.
It is each person’s own responsibility to learn about the services and devices that they use. Once empowered the document can be completed and personal preferences adhered to.
If you require further support please feel free to contact us directly and we will try to help you with whatever problems you may have encountered.
