My step-brother died unexpectedly Friday evening. He was in his early 40's. Hoping someone can walk me through what to do with Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.

I was hoping to get advice about best practices in a situation like this. Do people create memorial pages on FB? Do they turn the deceased's FB profile into the memorial or create a separate profile? Do they post from the deceased's FB profile to alert his followers? Links to examples, FB policies, advice, all appreciated.
I have no idea what to do with Twitter and LinkedIn. Send a tweet to his followers linking to the FB memorial page if one is created? What about LinkedIn?
These are basic questions of the RTFM variety and at another time I would have no problem working it out but at the moment it is all I can do to compose this Ask.
