Okla. Law Determines Who Controls Social Media Accounts After Death


Estate executors in Oklahoma have been granted control over a dead person’s social media accounts according to a new law that went into effect Nov. 1.

Although the legislation conflicts with most social media users agreements by assuming the accounts to be the property of the creator, rather than belonging to the social media networks, such as Facebook, former state Rep. Ryan Kiesel believes the action will prompt people to consider the fate of these profiles after they die, reports KOCO News in Oklahoma City.
