Fret not, worriers of the social networking world -- in the event of your untimely death, a new startup will allow you to keep your legacy going from beyond the grave. DeadSocial -- which launches in beta today -- taps into your Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ accounts, and keeps a private calendar of messages that will be distributed on your networks when you die.
"There's no reason why you should stop being able to communicate, tell people how you feel about them, after you've passed away," says founder James Norris. "This is really a way to address death, not in a dark and sinister way, but to look at it from a more creative and a more technical perspective. ... It's a bit more fun."
