How to Configure Facebook’s Memorialization Settings

- Create a “Legacy Contact”,” someone who will oversee your Facebook page once you’ve left. The Legacy Contact can accept friend requests, edit the cover and profile pictures and send tribute messages.
- The Facebook account will be deleted completely. This is distinct from deactivation, which means that all traces associated with your account will be erased permanently from Facebook’s servers.

- Choose Settings & privacy> Settings > Memorialization settings.
