8 Jul

facebookThe Michael Jackson Memorial Funeral service on July 7th 2009 was the biggest event ever on Facebook. It was a bigger  FACE BOOK event than the Barack  Obama Inauguration.

Television reports have the  event as the second largest FUNERAL EVENT on TV coming in  behind the Princess Di Funeral.

There is no way to measure totally the  viewing audience because live streams were everywhere on the web. The event was shown in movie theaters across the country as well.

Snippet from From Mashable.com

“Facebook just sent us the staggering stats coming out of their live Michael Jackson memorial stream, created in partnership with CNN. The numbers far exceed those from Obama’s inauguration, making this the biggest live Facebook event in history.

As of yesterday 800,000 people gave away the Michael Jackson(MJ) virtual glove gift. The Michael Jackson Funeral was the largest Facebook interactive event  ever.

Commentators and many folks thought the MJ  Funeral coverage was over the top and not appropriate. it was a bit much.

Michael Jackson Public Funeral To be held in Staples Center in LA

Michael Jackson Public Funeral To be held in Staples Center in LA 9:00 AM July 7th 2009

The Michael Jackson Funeral Service may  be on 7.o7.o9. Reports say it will be at the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles. Details are not formalized all though reports say the service will be next Tuesday.

Fans who made the pilgrimage to Neverland Ranch  have found this is  truly disappointing. In any funeral famous or unknown the wishes of the family are always respected.

According to USA Today.

“A free public memorial for Michael Jackson will be held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles….

Randy Phillips, CEO of AEG Live, which will produce the memorial…….

TMZ stated that Michael Jackson’s body was at Forest Lawn Mortuary in LA.

It ws announced on Thursday nite that  free 11,000 tickets would be made available to the public, and that large screens would be set up outside the Staples Center to accommodate crowd overflow. Quite possibly a private funeral service will be held ahead of the public one.

Michael Jackson|Funeral|location,indecision hurts fans- YourFuneralguy

Reports now State the Michael Jackson funeral will be at the Staples Center in  LA

Reports now State the Michael Jackson funeral will be at the Staples Center in LA

Michael Jackson’s Funeral is to be in Los Angeles. It will not happen at the Neverland Ranch. Speculation abounds. A  good funeral director will let the family take as long as it wants to make funeral arrangements. However the public indecision of the Jackson Family has hurt fans.

It has been reported that trouble getting the  burial permits for  a Neverland MJ Burial, was the reason for no Neverland Michael Jackson Burial.

Discord in the Jackson Family was also a reason given for no Neverland Burial.

Snippet from  Fox News:

Sources close to the dicussions tell FOX News that a Jackson even will take place at 10 am at the downtown arena where the Los Angeles Lakers play.

Maybe the MJ private funeral  service will also be public MJ  Memorial Service.

The Michael Jackson Funeral will not be held at Neverland Ranch

The Michael Jackson Funeral will NOT be held at Neverland Ranch

The one thing that frustrates a funeral director when making funeral arrangements is a family that keeps changing its mind on the funeral. This appears to be what is happening in the Michael Jackson Funeral.

It is clear that some of the Michael Jackson Family wanted the public Funeral at The Neverland Ranch.

A Visitation will not occur there. A Memorial Service for the public will not happen at Neverland.

Although the family had somehow gotten the Santa Barbara Sheriff, CHP and other law enforcement officials to cooperate, the Funeral will not take place at the Neverland Ranch.

NEW FUNERAL INFORMATION


Snippet from:

From TMZ.com

– it won’t be until next week– it will not be at Neverland– it will be in the L.A. area, and the Staples Center…. hasn’t been decided.

The other owners of the Neverland Ranch are aware of the income opportunities that are available to Neverland Ranch with the death of Michael Jackson, the King of POP.

The Santa Babara Sheriff’s department is involved.

From Showbizspy.com

“Our role will primarily be traffic, but also crowd control,” department spokesperson Lt. Butch Arnoldi told E! News. “We will also be making sure there is no trespassing on neighboring ranches and stuff like that. We would be stationed on the perimeter of the house. The actual roadway will be the responsibility of the CHP.”
