Why Is Facebook Telling Everyone That They’re Dead?

This afternoon, Facebook started telling everyone that they’re dead. The bad news is that it’s very likely you’ll be getting a phone call from your aunt or uncle who just got the horrible news. The good news is that you’re able to tell them that you’re alive because… well you’re alive. It’s just a bug that Facebook’s having right now.

I’m a little upset that I can’t recreate this bug on my own, mostly because I think it’s the closest thing to attending my own funeral, but thankfully The Verge pulled together a couple of great examples to show that we’re not crazy. Apparently, the issue is even affecting Mark Zuckerberg.


Omg catch this bug while its hot: facebook has memorialized all of its accounts accidentally. We're all dead!!!!!! pic.twitter.com/eqbtL7iGas
