Leaving a Digital Legacy

The Katie Lance Podcast Episode 044

Every time you hit post, every time you hit share, every time you hit like you’re leaving this digital footprint that is telling the story of who you are, what you believe in, and what’s most important to you. For most of us, we hope that in our life we leave an amazing legacy for our family and friends that encompasses who we are and what we believe in and the impact we had in our family and our communities. But we also are leaving a digital legacy.

In this episode I want to  encourage you to think about how you want to be remembered, especially digitally.

Lessons learned:

  • Our kids, our grandkids, our great grandkids will potentially know more about us than any other generation and a big part of that is because of what we are posting online with our digital legacy. 
  • Think about what you are posting. When you post online, think to yourself, what if someone were to look back on this in 20 years?
  • If you don’t want to be on social media, you don’t have to do it, but I would also encourage you, especially if you have kids or grandkids, that getting online a little bit, sharing who you are a little bit, sharing your stories a little bit can be really, really powerful.

Additional resources:

  • Appoint a legacy contact to look after your memorialized Facebook account.
