Facebook lets grieving father have 'Look back Video'
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- It doesn't happen often. But Facebook has decided to give a grieving father a look at his dead son's page on the social networking site. And in doing so, it may make it possible for more people who have lost loved ones to keep having access to their Facebook pages. John Berlin, who lives near St. Louis, begged Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg in a post to let him see a copy of the new "look back" video feature for his 21-year-old son who recently died. Facebook typically disables the accounts of people who've passed away. But in a statement yesterday, the company is suggesting it might change its policies on information posted by users who later died.
