Facebook announced on April 9 a series of new measures to increase the profile management of persons now deceased. The “Memorial” function is old but has a new tributary section. It will have additional new controls for who manages a page like this. And with artificial intelligence support to refine the display of souvenirs with those loved ones.
The first news is the new section of tributes to the people who are gone. Memory profiles gain a unique flap to house the tributes received from others who visit such profiles, leaving everything more organized, without messing up the profile timeline.

Another new feature is the additional controls for heir contacts, who, from now on, can moderate posts and comments left in the new tributes section, select who can or can not leave that kind of homage to a deceased person, and edit cover photo and profile of the user who left.
Finally, the latest novelty involves the use of AI to minimize painful experiences with the profile of deceased persons. With this, Facebook hopes to better understand when and for whom it should show memories such as anniversary or early friendship to prevent it from being a trigger for sad moments.
The new features are now available to everyone on Facebook.
