Communicating Beyond The Grave: Facebook Gets Death Wrong

Consider this all-too-common scenario:

A person passes away tragically, so their friends and family flood to their Facebook page and Instagram comments to leave condolences. In those painful moments, all their loved ones want is to cherish old memories — but it’s next to impossible to find them in the sea of Facebook posts.

How can we ensure we’re leaving behind a meaningful digital footprint for our loved ones?

Enter MiLegacy —a new kind of social network that helps you share your legacy for generations to come. According to founder Ken Huening, traditional social media is useless at sharing our long-term memories with others.

YOU CAN COMMUNICATE BEYOND THE GRAVE
MiLegacy lets you lock content in “time capsules,” to be revealed at a specified time in the future. Grandfathers can send letters to their grandchildren on their graduation day, mothers can leave letters for their daughters on their birthday, or you can set a confession to go live after your death — a family secret, an explanation of your will, even the confession of a crime!

OUR MEMORIES ARE ORGANIZED IN A SEARCHABLE ARCHIVE
In addition to sorting by date and person, MiLegacy sorts its feed by milestones (like food, family, or hobbies) so your loved ones can find the content important to them, instead of scrolling through thousands of mundane posts.

LIVE IN THE PRESENT—BUT DOCUMENT THE PAST
As well as capturing day-to-day moments from your present, MiLegacy’s platform encourages you tell the most important stories from your past—like using a voice transcription to capture a classic tale of childhood mischief.
