Facebook mistakenly asks many users if they're dead - Tampa News. If Facebook thinks you're dead, are you? If Social Media kills you, will you speak from the grave? Apparently, elections aren't the only thing Big Data finds difficult to predict. Many Facebook users have been receiving messages from Facebook asking if they want to create a memorial page for their Facebook account, since they are dead. I haven't received one yet; so, I guess that I am still alive. I suppose that the fact that I post every single day has something to do with my ability to be alive. Trust me. If I am dead, and am still posting, it is because I set some posts to publish in the future. For now, please, Facebook, don't kill me. I have so much living to do.
