Facebook Kills A Bunch Of People, Then Resurrects Them

That's just a bit too much corporate power, don't you think?
Facebook Kills A Bunch Of People, Then Resurrects Them

A few minutes ago I checked into Facebook just to see how people (and our posts!) were doing there. The first status I saw was from Joshua Holland, who was insisting he wasn't dead.

Then I started seeing tweets from other people about it too.

Shortly after people started seeing the memorial message at the top of their pages, they were resurrected by the virtual gods of social media pulling tech strings in the background. It seems to have been mostly verified users who were affected by it.

Too much corporate power?
