Facebook was designed for the living, states a Wired post, which added that as the social network grew older, it also needed to decide what should happen when users die. In 2015, Facebook began allowing people to assign a legacy contact to be in charge of their account in the event they pass away, but the system wasn’t perfect and users found some of the associated policies upsetting.

According to Wired, Facebook will now give “the legacy contact more control over the deceased’s presence on Facebook, including the ability to manage a new “Tributes” section where loved ones can reminisce about the person they lost. The feature underscores how Facebook wants to be the place for life’s most important events, even when that event is death.”
