    Facebook to keep profiles of the dead

    Death doesn't erase the online footprints that people leave in life and Facebook won't either, though it will make some changes.

    The five-year-old social network will "memorialize" profiles of the dead if their friends or family request it.

    Such accounts will be different from regular Facebook profiles.

    For example, the site will remove any contact information and bar people from logging in. The person's profile also won't appear in the "suggestions" section of Facebook, and only the deceased person's confirmed friends will be able to find them in a search.

    The development comes as Facebook becomes an important social hub for its more than 300 million active users worldwide to keep up with friends and family.

    I friended someone who appeared on the Vh1 show "Megan wants a Millionare" and then for the longest time that Ryan Jenkins guy kept popping up on my list of suggestions.  :2huh:

    (The guy who killed his insta-wife from Vegas, then hung himself in Canada)

    Super creepy. Glad they're taking care of that little problem.
