Facebook Glitch Accidentally Confirmed We’re All in Purgatory
A glitch on Facebook has basically revealed everything that happened this week was real, and in fact not a dream, by telling people they’re dead.
And the internet says, “Yeah, true!”
Basically, Facebook has a special setting to creepily keep someone’s page going long after their death. They put a depressing little bouquet of flowers with “Remembering [Your Name Here]” and invite people to write on your wall all about what a gem you were.
Well, today, a bunch of people’s pages went into death mode, with the remembrance graphics appearing at the top of their pages as if they were, in fact, dead.
Even Mark Zuckerberg’s page said he was dead according to USAToday. His page said, “Remembering Mark Zuckerberg. We hope people who love Mark will find comfort in the things others share to remember and celebrate his life. Learn more about memorialized accounts and the legacy contact setting on Facebook.”
Several people also reported that their pages had turned into memorial pages. Some of the best reactions were on Twitter.

The upshot of being labeled as deceased on Facebook is that Trump now has to deport me to Canada because I don’t exist #facebookrapture

So just in case you thought the end was near, Facebook says it’s here.
Man, 2016, what a fucking year.
