Uh, Facebook? Are you trying to tell me something? I’m Amy E. Feldman.
In what one hopes is simply an editing error, in its terms and conditions, a Facebook message reads: a new Digital Legacy program lets you designate people as Legacy Contacts so they can access your account in the event of your death, with an asterisk that leads to the fine print: “*coming later this year”. Wait, what? My death is what? One hopes that’s a dangling modifier problem and not that Facebook knows everything.
