Quote of the day:

Dead people on facebook

Facebook security chief Max Kelly reminded Facebookers on Oct. 26 that they can have their dead friends' profiles memorialized.
"We understand how difficult it can be for people to be reminded of those who are no longer with them, which is why it's important when someone passes away that their friends or family contact Facebook to request that a profile be memorialized" -Kelly
When a Facebook profile is memorialized, its privacy settings are modified so that only confirmed friends can search for or see the profile. Certain sensitive information, such as contact information and status updates, is removed, and login is disabled, but friends can continue to post.
The practice of memorializing, which Facebook actually implemented nearly four years ago.
