- Write a pinned post for your profile (example: to share a final message on your behalf or provide information about a memorial service).
- Note: If your timeline and tagging settings don’t allow anyone other than you to post on your timeline, your legacy contact won’t be able to add a pinned post to your profile once it’s memorialized.
- Respond to new friend requests (example: old friends or family members who weren’t yet on Facebook).
