A Penny For Your Thoughts?

Have you heard of BzzAgent? It's a marketing company that sends you free stuff to try and in return you're expected to spread the word - positive or negative.

The latest BzzCampaign I've been invited to join is for a website called Otrib. Take a look at the picture below.

Otrib created a free facebook application where you can name an heir for your facebook account so that, after you die, someone can manage your profile, send out a death notification to all your friends, and create a tribute page or obituary.

Wow! What are your thoughts?


  1. Oh thats funny. I guess I haven't given much thought to notifying people who don't know I'm alive, that I'm dead ;)

    I think the people that matter will already know.

    That site sounds interesting though - should I sign up?

  2. Can you imagine receiving a death notice over facebook for one of your close friends, rather than in person? I'm definitely one of the few people who actually only accepts my "real" friends on facebook, not just every person I've ever met :)

    When my cousin passed away a few years ago, someone with her password kept accepting friends, after the fact. Spooky!

    I don't care enough about facebook to sign up for this.

  3. No thanks... it creeps me out.....

  4. I meant should I sign up for Bzzagent not for the death notice app? - I know I have no interest in that!

  5. @Marina Ohhhh, I thought you were talking about signing up for the Otrib thingy! Now that I read your comment more carefully, I get it! Yeah, give it a try! So far I've gotten free laundry detergent, toothpaste, restaurant coupons...
