Facebook To Increase Visibility Of Dead Users' Accounts


Facebook has decided to offer memorialized profiles of deceased members' accounts in a wider audience than before.

Up to now, when a person's account was memorialized, Facebook restricted its visibility to friends-only. This meant that people could no longer see the account or any of its content unless they were Facebook friends with the person who passed away. Starting today, Facebook will maintain the visibility of a person's content as-is. This will allow people to see memorialized profiles.

"We are respecting the choices a person made in life while giving their extended community of family and friends ongoing visibility to the same content they could always see," Facebook executives Chris Price and Alex DiScalfani wrote in a blog post.

Facebook?s move is complicated as questions remain on who controls a person's digital legacy.

Facebook's Price and DiScalfani suggested there was more to come. "We will have more to share in the coming months as we continue to think through how best to help people decide how they want to be remembered and what they want to leave behind for loved ones," they wrote.

Facebook has also begun offering a way for anyone who has suffered the loss of a loved one to see that person's "Look Back" video. Facebook's engineers created personal movies for people using some of the posts and photos they had shared over the years.
