With the increased popularity of online gaming, I see a lot of people developing relationships and making good friends with people they never meet. If you have a few favorite servers you frequent, chances are you've met and have become friends with regulars on that servers too. What happens though should you pass away? How would your online friends know? That's one of the things that this article on Yahoo
touches on as well as some services that will help let your online friends know of your passing. I found the situation where a father left a USB key to his son with all the information on who to contact in the online world rather interesting. I would never have thought of that but I guess it depends on how important you feel your online friends on whether you want them to know or not. Would you go through with a way to let those that you interact with online of your passing?
