Are your internet relationships that important??? Do you feel strongly enough to have a plan in case something happens to you? Or is this taking things just a little bit too far.....

Once your account is set up, the site will generate a certificate with simple instructions for a trusted third party. Put the certificate with your important papers, or give it to whoever is designated to handle your affairs in an emergency. If there is an emergency, your trusted person can use those instructions to send a notification message, or trigger messages you've written yourself."

At this point I don't particularly care what's gonna happen with my assets after I crock (even though I'd rather not have them go to Uncle Sam), much less with online notifications. Those I've closer contact with would have my RL info and eventually will figure it out. Am I gonna worry about the rest?! I don't think so... plenty of other crap to worry about.

Hm, very interesting.

I suppose the only reason I would use something like that would be if I didn't have the numbers of all my friends programmed into my phone (or it died), but they were all on Facebook.

Come to think of it, it's not a bad backup plan.
