Where do all the Dead People on Facebook go?

Where do all the dead people on Facebook go? An acquaintance of mine recently passed away and many of my friends’ profile pictures changed in honor of him. Sweet gesture I thought but, I couldn’t help but wonder –is Facebook counting these profiles in their numbers?

You can actually report a deceased person if you wish. Go to Facebook Help page to Report a Deceased Person.

Most people choose to leave their beloved’s profile up in a way to remember and celebrate their lives. Facebook advises that you must report the profile and they will find ways to protect the deceased.

This is Kesi Gardner's bio. Here is a little bit of copy about her. She's an ad-woman and all round great person. She's worked with some of the best in the business and is really passionate about advertising and social media. She loves it so much that not only did she teach it but never misses a Superbowl, just so she can watch the commercials. She goes the extra mile for her clients, sleeps about 5 hours per night and is obsessed with making a mark that people will remember. Her philosophy is that aesthetic design does impact the perception and ultimately the value of a brand. She also ran a successful t-shirt business where guerilla marketing and digital media marketing were used to drive sales.
