How to Delete a Facebook Profile for Someone Who Died

How to Delete a Facebook Profile for Someone Who Died: Interestingly, Facebook "memorializes" the accounts of users who have died on the giant social networking website. Memorializing the account, blocks the account, meaning no one can log in to it. The memorialized account also does not accept new friend requests; but, the content of the timeline remains visible to friends. If you are an immediate family member and prefer not to have the account memorialized but rather removed, you'll need to contact Facebook and provide some form of verification that you are an immediate family member of the deceased.
