Over the last half hour or so, reports have started
pouring in from Facebook users that the social network has suddenly
“memorialized” their pages, strongly suggesting that they are dead to everyone
who stops by.
Take the above profile of our own Darrell
Etherington — who is very much not dead, as in I’m talking to him right now and
I’m definitely not Bruce Willis.
“We hope people who love Darrell will find comfort
in the things others share to remember and celebrate his life” it reads.
The issue seems to be fairly random; it’s not
popping up on everyone’s profile, but it’s certainly happening on a lot of
them, including Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.

Probably not the best time to get something
like this wrong, Facebook.
We’ve
reached out to Facebook to figure out wtf is happening.
Update: In a quote
from a Facebook rep, the company says they’ve fixed it and they’re sorry.

“For a brief period today, a message meant
for memorialized profiles was mistakenly posted to other accounts. This was a
terrible error that we have now fixed. We are very sorry that this happened and
we worked as quickly as possible to fix it.”
