Google and Facebook Update Policies Regarding Deceased User's Accounts

Recently, Google updated its service to provide the family members of a deceased and estate administrators additional options when dealing with the deceased's Google account. Under a new Google policy, survivors and estate administrators can upload their loved ones death certificates and obituaries. In addition, current users of Google services have more control over what will happen to their Google accounts after their death. The new Google function is similar to the new "legacy" option that Facebook offers to its account holders.
