Facebook briefly told everyone they were dead


It's been a rough week for Facebook. They've been criticized for the role fake news appearing on their platform played in the presidential election. And for a few minutes Friday, there was a glitch telling users that they, and everyone else on the site, were dead.

At the top of profiles (including public pages), there was a little bar about remembering that person saying, "We hope people who love [name] will find comfort in the things others share to remember and celebrate [his or her] life." 

It appears the glitch has been resolved, but Facebook has not issued a comment on it yet.
