I have a few friends on FB that are dead.
I've removed a couple that are dead.
I'm friends with some of my dead friends kid's.
Do you keep your dead friends on FB? If so, why?
If not, why not?

I feel like I should keep them so that I don't forget them. But it makes me sad. My friend Bridget recently passed from a failed aortic valve replacement. I'm friends with her kids on FB. And she used to be way ahead of me on a game we played together. But now...I get sad every time I play the game. And I know at some point I will pass her in levels. Not for awhile, though - woman stayed at home and played all day, I swear - so I have some time. But at the same time I don't know if I want to keep playing. Because I see her face every time I log on to play. #conundrum

I have a few people on Facebook that died.

People put messages on their page on their birthdays and such. It's a way of remembering them I guess.

My mum and brother are on there too. If you delete them you can never get their pages back, so it seems a bit drastic to cut them off. I think there should be an option to mark profiles as no longer living.

I deleted all my dead friends / relatives from fb when they started recommending products.

I think that's why I haven't done so - like, a couple I wish I had back. There should be an option go do that - good idea.

But FB's algorithm's are so screwed up anyway.

One of my friend passed an I didn't know for a year (which is probably why I still have him on my FB even 3 years later - guilt).

YES

WHY isn't there a way for this to not happen?

A lot of my friends are older.
Or just...passed in their sleep or had an aneurysm.

This guy I went to school with had a brain tumor for years and finally passed.

Then he started recommending products on facebook a while after he died.

Can't they make memorial pages out of profiles or have I imagined that?

I have a couple. One is my grandmother who I keep because otherwise her profile would be lost to the void as my sister and I are the only ones who have kept it. The other is a guy I went to high school with who committed suicide. I keep his because he was such a wonderful person. There might be more but I am not really remembering right now.

They can, and do. It had to be requested though.

I keep my dead friends. Sometimes people post old memories or pictures on their pages so it’s nice to see that and remember them.

There’s a way that family members can memorialize a fb page. Instead of having it be just their name, it will say “remembering” that person.

I'm wondering at what point the tipping point will happen between the number alive and the number dead.
20 days ago - Friday 12/29/17 - 6:57:42 PM EST (GMT-5)
I only have a couple, but I have kept them both.

One's husband and family still tag her profile in big event type posts so that her friends can keep up with what's going on with the family.

I have two, friend and dad. I never considered deleting either of them.
20 days ago - Friday 12/29/17 - 7:58:00 PM EST (GMT-5)
i have six dead FB friends, two of them are relatives i was close with, and four who i knew from school or who died from health problems. it's a bit sad whenever i look at it but i don't remove them as they are tagged by other friends in memories.

I’ve never thought about deleting them. They’ve never recommended anything to me either. I find it nice every once in a while to see friends tag them and talk about them.

Like one of my university friends passed away and she loved Christmas and every Christmas people will post fond memories of her.

Keep and I often go back and look at their posts and pictures and I'm crying now.

At 40+ you start going to a lot more funerals than weddings.
19 days ago - Friday 12/29/17 - 11:39:45 PM EST (GMT-5)
All of my old relatives are already dead. I think Rag's dad was the only funeral I've gone to in the past 15 years.

My first wife's grandmother just passed away Wednesday at 93. She was a wonderful woman, who raised a million kids.

I'm going to go only if my kids, her great grandkids, ask me to accompany them.

And my grandkids are her great great grandkids. Crazy.

She lived a wonderful life. So that.
