Sooooo, Facebook keeps suggesting I add, as a Friend, a person who is dead. Which raises a couple of questions:
- Assuming no supernatural intervention, who is it that actually Confirms my request to be a friend?
- If I don’t take FB up on its suggestion, is that denying the friendship we had (have)?
- Why, having declined the suggestion several times, does Facebook continue to suggest them as a friend once every couple of months?
I know the answers to these questions, of course. But as Facebook’s Lifecloud grows, deaths and how they’re handled will inevitably present new challenges for the web platform.
