In response to the specific example of Nicolala liking Walmart, Facebook insists it really did happen: “We show that the Like happened on 10/01 at 6:46 p.m.,” the spokesman says.

Why Are Dead People Liking Stuff On Facebook? (ReadWrite)

Three things.

  1. Apparently ReadWrite is the new ReadWriteWeb. They should have kept the Web, at least for another six months.
  2. This is just an amazing thing to hear Facebook say. I can’t believe they would go on record with something like this. I don’t pretend to begin to understand the economics of Likes and how Facebook means to make money, but christ. There should be 3-5 people who don’t get to go to sleep until my dead friends stop liking things on Facebook.
  3. Does this mean Mike Janssen and David Jacobs don’t like Amtrak?
