How to Memorialize a Facebook Page

There are a few different ways to memorialize a Facebook page. The easiest way is to contact Facebook and request that they memorialize the page. You can also do it yourself by following a few simple steps.

If you would like to contact Facebook to memorialize a page, you can call customer support directly.

If you would like to memorialize a Facebook page yourself, you can follow these steps:

1. Log into your Facebook account.

2. Go to the memorialized person's profile

3. Click on the gear icon and select "Request Memorialization."

4. Enter the reason for requesting memorialization.

5. Click on "Send."

After you have submitted your request, Facebook will review it and most likely approve it. Once the page has been memorialized, it will appear in a separate section on the memorialized person's profile. Only friends of the deceased can see this section.

If you are not the executor of the deceased person's estate, you should not make any changes to their Facebook account. This includes changing the privacy settings, deleting the account, or memorializing the page. If you are not sure what to do, you should contact the estate's executor.

If you are the executor of the deceased person's estate, there are a few things that you should do:

1. Review the Facebook account and make sure that it is in line with the wishes of the deceased.

2. Contact Facebook to request that the account be memorialized.

3. Change the privacy settings of the account so that only friends can see it

4. Delete any posts or photos that are not appropriate.

5. Transfer any money that is in the account to the estate.

6. Close the account.

It's important to remember that Facebook is not a legal document and that you should not use the account as such. If you are unsure of what to do, you should contact Facebook customer support.

Can Facebook Reject My Request?

Facebook has the right to reject a request to memorialize a page. This may happen if the deceased person did not have a Facebook account or used the page for fraudulent activity. If Facebook rejects your request, they will send you a message explaining why.

What Happens to the Page After It is Memorialized?

After a Facebook page has been memorialized, they will move it to a separate section on the deceased person's profile. This section is only visible to friends of the deceased. You can no longer edit the page and make no new posts. However, friends and family can still leave messages and memories. You can change the profile picture to a gravestone, and the cover photo will be a black and white version of the profile picture.

If you are the executor of an estate, you can contact Facebook to delete the account permanently. This will remove the profile from Facebook altogether.
