How does Facebook know someone has died?

How to Memorialize a Facebook Page when someone dies.

Facebook knows someone has died when their Facebook friends and family leave their condolences tagging the person’s profile in their Facebook post and from the nature of comments in those posts. A friend or family member can apply to Facebook to have a deceased person’s page memorialized, as long as proof of death is provided (normally a news link or an obituary) the account then is displayed as “In memory of… [person’s name]” where friends and family can leave tributes to the person.
