Facebook has a problem dealing with death and dying, then again so does google, yahoo, twitter and other internet giants.
Facebook changed it’s policy to letting memorial pages go on into perpetuity a while back. The New York Times recently did a great article on this subject.
It seems that facebook just cannot let folks die, Facebook must be notified and the deceased love one must join the Dead Facebook Society . Until the deceased facebook page is deleted or a memorial page set up facebook cannot tell who is dead or alive. Until some one takes action…..
the ghosts are free to roam Facebook. You could get a message to contact a dead friend!

Facebook and YouTube have a somewhat effective policy on Death and Dying.
