Physically dead, Digitally eternal

This is a very neat way of pitching life insurance, but what actually lies at the heart of the discussion is HOW MUCH INFORMATION we make available for everyone to see and read, things about us that our closest and dearest relatives might NEVER know.

Digital media and social networks coax into thinking about the future in a different slant: EVERYTIME we post, we tweet, we blog, we are creating our LEGACY without even putting much effort into it.

Do our social network footprints really matter or will really mean anything to anybody?

Last week I discarded/got rid of my first PC. It was such in a bad condition that it was obsolete.
I hope nobody makes improper use of my data.

Companies can devise strategies to target specific groups.

This data is an important source of information.

We have to be more careful with what we post online
