Why the Deceased Should Remain on Linkedin

March 2014

Every now and then a deceased colleague or loved one will pop up in front of us on Linkedin under suggested connections or to share a news event. This brings up an interesting question: should the electronic profiles of the deceased remain on Linkedin or be removed? In the California of Health Care Leaders (CAHL) March 2014 newsletter column Career Corner Why the Deceased Should Remain on Linkedin, IT Optimizer’s founder and managing practice director, Joseph DeLuca, offers his thoughts on this topic. Looking back at his personal experience, Mr. DeLuca believes that the profiles of the deceased should indeed remain on Linkedin as a place of remembrance of those who have had an impact on other’s lives.

Joseph DeLuca serves as a Member of the Board of Directors and as a Member of Career Development and Transition Committee for CAHL, a chapter of the American College of Healthcare Executives.

We are curious to know your thoughts on this topic. Email Joe your feedback.
