Dead to outnumber the living on Facebook in 50 years

Apr 28, 2019 12:19 IST

If Facebook continues to expand at current rates, the number of dead users could reach as high as 4.9 billion before the end of the century, researchers from the University of Oxford said. The dead may outnumber the living on Facebook within 50 years, a trend that will have grave implications for how we treat our digital heritage in the future. The analysis predicts that based on 2018 user levels, at least 1.4 billion members will die before 2100. In this scenario, the dead could outnumber the living by 2070.
