    What Happens to Your Facebook After You Die?

    In an Oct. 26 blog post, Max Kelly, Facebook's head of security, announced the company's policy of "memorializing" profiles of users who have died, taking them out of the public search results, sealing them from any future log-in attempts and leaving the wall open for family and friends to pay their respects. Though most media reports claimed this was a new Facebook feature, a spokeswoman for the company told TIME that it's an option the site has had since its early days.

    This is timely, as a childhood friend of mine that I had just located on Facebook died a day or so after he befriended me on it!

    How would your Facebook know that you died? Unless someone notified them?

    Maybe you're supposed to put in in your status: "Dead now. Posting from beyond. Boo."

    Not unless someone takes over your site for you. I had just befriended my friend a day or two before he died.

    Ok, I posted this on my wall. To change FB back: Click on MOVE on menu at the left of the screen. Click on STATUS UPDATES and drag it above NEWS FEED. This will put your FB back like it was.

    All they did was move the news feed up above the status updates so the page looks different when you first open it. If you do the above, it goes back like it was before.

    You also have to change it from "news feed" to "live feed." Otherwise you'll still miss a lot!

    i contacted facebook a few days ago asking them to please give me my fathers password and information so i can run his page as a memorial. he made an account right before he died and my mother is his only friend on there. they have yet to contact me back. i am very discouraged by this. he passed away last june and i do not want him forgotten. i would love to have people send me photos of him and them to upload oe be able to post memories or stories of him. it breaks my heart to see his name on facebook and i cannot even get on his friends list let alone his profile

    Hi chemcopout-so sorry for your loss. If you have access to the email he registered to facebook with, you can click the "forgot password" link and they will either send you the password or tell you to reset it (create a new one). Hope that helps.
