On Nov 10th,Facebook declared everyone dead, including the company’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg, along with a massive memorial note.
The reason behind this was a glitch.
Every one who visited their profile during that time was tured into “memorialized account” all user were marked dead during that time.
Facebook introduced the memorial feature in 2015 after a number of high-profile cases where families wanted to access their loved ones’ social accounts.
The users can opt to have their account completely delete after their death or turn into a memorial page so that their Facebook friends and families can leave messages and share memories on their profile.
Note on Mark Zuckerberg’s profile during that time:
We hope people who love Mark will find comfort in the things others share to remember and celebrate his life.
When approached to Facebook for an explanation, The Spokesperson of Facebook said the following statement:
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.
This Glitch made some confusion but all though it was fixed up soon.
