Facebook is on track to become the world ‘s largest virtual graveyard to be by the year 2098. By the end of this century , the number of dead people will outnumber the living on the social networking site , according to a statistician .

Currently, Facebook has 1.5 billion users across the globe. This unimaginable situation could arise as a result of the decision of dead users do not automatically remove Facebook . Instead let their profile as a memorial page . If we look at the data , this year alone take more than predicted to die a million Facebook users . In comparison with the number of 385,000 in 2010, this number is very large.

According to Hachem Sadikki, a PhD candidate at the University of Massachusetts, who made this prediction, the slow growth in the number of new users is also responsible.

As most people do not share their Facebook password with friends and family, their profile remains alive even after their death. This is shocking in some cases in the past when dead people still appear as having birthdays in their friends ‘ News Feed . The account can be deleted only if someone logging in with passwords and lock it .
