R.I.P. on Facebook

Did you know you could get a Facebook profile converted to a digital memorial stone? Since 2009 relatives to a dead person with a profile on Facebook have had the option to fill out a memorialization request which turns the profile into a page for confirmed friends of the deceased.

Millions of people continue to have a profile on the site even if they are no longer living. No one can log in and out, but with the memorial wall, friends and family can leave post in remembrance.

You’ll find the request form here.
