Social Media in the Ether

The Associated Press reports that Facebook, with its widespread growing popularity--more than 300 million users worldwide--is looking to expand further beyond, as in The Great Beyond.

If friends or family make such a request to the five-year-old social network, then Facebook will memorialize profiles of users who have died. Unlike regular Facebook profiles, the profiles of deceased "members" will not include contact information and will only be accessible via search to the decedent's confirmed friends.

Another way to tell if the Facebook profile is of a deceased individual: if you "poke" him, he doesn't move.
