‘Your friends are dead’: Internet LOLs after glitch ‘kills’ people on Facebook
Several Facebook users Friday afternoon noticed a glitch on their Facebook profiles that suggested to friends they have died.
“We hope people who love [user] will find comfort in the things others share to remember and celebrate her life,” the banners read, along with links to “learn more about memorialized accounts” and establish a “legacy contact.”
As people struggled to come to grips with the revelation that, at least according to Facebook, they’re dead, Twitter users stepped up to answer some of the internet’s most existential questions:
Everyone: Facebook caused Trump
Facebook: You’re all dead
