How to Memorialize or Remove a Dead person’s Profile on Facebook ?
It is so hard for us to survive when any one of our friends or family or loved ones passes away. We can never forget them in our life and their memories will continue till our last breath. Recently I’ve lost my friend in an accident. So I know that pain. I daily use to visit his profile to collect memories, to see his pictures. 🙁 But one thing I’ve noticed is, his profile was appearing in Suggestions for People You May Know, Birthday reminders, Apps, Sponsored stories etc in facebook. So I’ve personally investigated to what to do for his profile to not to appear in those type of suggestions, reminders, apps etc. So with that personal experience, I’m writing this post, How to Memorialize or Remove a Deceased Person’s Profile on Facebook.
