We are all accustomed to the Facebook arbitrarily (especially when it’s against a conservative) deleting accounts or posts because they don’t “meet community standards” but this is the first time I’ve heard of them randomly labeling people dead.
Over the last half hour or so, reports have started pouring in from Facebook users that the social network has suddenly “memorialized” their pages, strongly suggesting that they are dead.
Update: In a quote from a Facebook rep, the company says they’ve fixed it and they’re sorry.
“For a brief period today, a message meant for memorialized profiles was mistakenly posted to other accounts. This was a terrible error that we have now fixed. We are very sorry that this happened and we worked as quickly as possible to fix it.”
