Facebook is telling people that they are dead

2016 will never end.

Are you alive? Are you sure?

Facebook is telling a lot of people that they’re dead. Many users have received a notification on top of their profile that reads: “Remembering Johana. We hope people who love Johana will find comfort in the things others share to remember and celebrate her life.”

My colleague, Peter Kafka, has also been pronounced dead. Rest in peace, us.

(I assure you we are alive and well.)

The Facebook-simulated rapture does not really discriminate and has also taken Mark Zuckerberg’s life. It’s not happening to everyone, though. My other colleague Jason Del Rey was somehow spared.



We reached out to Facebook and are waiting to hear back.
