Social media continually gets stranger by the day. Some sites and apps are offering fake friends for funds. Others are offering an opportunity to produce your death announcement, which will be held for release until you die.

One Website offers to rent a mate willing to be in a relationship with you for a fee. They will be your online friend for a few days, just to make someone else jealous.

Another site is cashing in on the fact that because none of us are aware of the method or the hour in which we are going to die, so an app is offering anyone to personally announce their passing to friends on their social-networking site.

Some users are controlling their digital afterlife, by utilizing individualized services which shares your passwords to our chosen and trusted users once we permanently check out.
