Flickr Introducing ‘in Memoriam’ Account Status ➝

Flickr is introducing a new account status on their service — “In Memoriam”. This account status is available to existing Flickr members who have passed away. For accounts that have been given this status, Flickr will preserve all public content on their profile, even if the account’s Pro subscription expires.

I really like seeing news from Flickr in my RSS feeds and hope this trend continues.
