  4. If you have proof that someone you know died (a link to an obituary or something along those lines) you can get their profile "memorialized" but otherwise nothing happens.

  5. I know a couple people who died in a car accident and their facebook profiles disappeared months later, not sure how their families went about it.

  6. It's in the facebook FAQ.

    From someone who goes through the facebook FAQ instead of studying for midterms.

  7. And if you turn the clock on your computer forward you can tell when you're going to die by when your facebook account gets deleted/memorialized since it thinks that you are already dead. It's like how you can extend the life of 'trial' versions of software by keeping the date on your computer back so the program thinks it shouldn't have expired yet.
