[TIP] We make plans for after life with insurance policies and will. Now include Facebook into the plan. It is important to ensure someone trustworthy take charge of your digital life.


You can now find a feature call “Legacy Contact” in your Facebook account. Look for ‘Settings’ then ‘Security’ and you find it near the end of the page.


In a nutshell, you can nominate a Facebook friend to be the custodian of your account or ask Facebook to have your account deleted when you are deleted from this world. Read more in the link here - Facebook “What will happen to my account if I pass away?


The thought of my Facebook profile outliving me sends a shiver down my spine. It is nice to have a digital memorial where your profile is marked “Remembering” yet it can’t go on forever. Or to have updates on your wall when you in the coffin (or in urn/sea) and unable to respond is totally weird.


I think I will ask Facebook to wipe my profile off when I am done in this world. Strangely this feels like one of the more meaningful things  I did today…



[GOOD DEAL] I am a big fan of magazines in even this digital age where information move faster online than offline. I like physical magazines because I can take reading offline and give my eyes a break for LEDs. There is only one problem.


Magazines aren’t value-for-money in my books. My current favourites include HardwareMag, T3, Stuff and Chip. Well the first 3 will cost me between S$5 to S$8 a month and the last is not available in Singapore.


So I am pleasantly surprised when I come across the Magzter Gold promotion. For SGD49.99, you get 1 year unlimited access to 3,500+ best-selling magazines! This is similar to Netflix subscription model except in this case you get magazine buffet.


Unfortunately the promotion seemed to be over by now, since I took my own sweet time to write this article!


Nonetheless, Magzter Gold is still available for SGD 9.99 a month now.


Now whether or not this is a good deal depends if the collection of magazines under Magzter Gold interests you. I listed below the magazines within the Magazter Gold subscription that I thought was worth mentioning which of course is strongly skewed to the Tech magazines.
