(Reuters) - Facebook Inc said on Friday a glitch that changed profiles of several users, including that of Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg, to memorial pages had been resolved.
A message meant for memorialized profiles was mistakenly posted to other accounts, a company representative said in an emailed statement.
"We hope people who love [ name ] will find comfort in the things others share to remember and celebrate [ his/her ] life," appeared at the top of user profiles, Gizmodo reported.
People took to Twitter to ridicule the glitch.
"Facebook thinks I'm dead I guess? That's awkward," Jason Evagelho tweeted.
