Facebook thinks many users are suddenly dead

Don’t panic. Odds are, dozens of your friends didn’t all pass away on Friday.

Instead, a glitch on Facebook turned many profiles into memorialized accounts.

At the top of the profile, a little blue flower appears next to the message, “We hope people who love (name) will find comfort in the things others share to remember and celebrate (his or her) life.”

A Facebook spokesperson told Politico reporter Hadas Gold they are aware of the bug, but no accounts have been compromised.

Even Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg isn’t exempt from the bug.
