'Social Media' epitaphs etc

Firstly, apologies if this has been covered before - I looked but found nothing. Also, if in the wrong place please move!

With the passing of Sluggy and Super Matelot and no doubt others, and the huge responses from mostly 'virtual mates', it got me thinking. Is there a recognised 'procedure' for announcing the passing of a poster, regardless of site? Is it the done thing for family to put up a post, or indeed the poster to write their own epitaph to be sent to the various fora he or she used? There are probably posters here that post regularly on various topics, but in the real world have been famous/incredibly brave/decorated or even just much missed etc that should maybe be acknowledged.
