    Dead friends and family

    I have at least a dozen people on my FB friends list who are deceased - some of them for a great number of years. Do you delete people from your social media when they die or keep them on?

    I had a co-worker back in 09 pass from Pancreatic Cancer ... after a yr I purged him and a bunch of other people

    after a while people quit posting condolences ....


    personal choice obviously

    unless there is some 'memories' you want to go back and relive why keep them around

    alternately ... they are no longer posting so nothing should be popping up in your feed does it matter if they sit there dormant
    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    I keep them on. I want to see if they vote Democratic.

    I can't say I ever thought about it before.... I do have several FB friends who are gone now. It's not like they are taking up valuable space.. ;-p

    My sister, mom & aunt passed away and I can't see myself to ever bring myself to delete them. Friends? I can't think of any offhand that are still on the list.

    I keep my premo just so I don't lose some text messages from people who aren't here anymore.
