What will happen to our digital life/data when we die?

Most of us use multiple email accounts, blogs, subscription to email lists, social networks, web sites etc. In the future with web2.0 and web3.0 we'll be using the Internet more often and the www, and intern we'll be putting lot of data/information online. But when we die, what will happen to all these? I know that there are some mechanisms to close down some of the services if are not used/inactive for some defined period of time.

There was a cartoon some time back saying " on the Internet, no body knows you are a dog". So, is it correct to say " on the Internet no body knows you are dead"?

Have you ever thought of this? What do you think?
