After Father’s Tearful Plea, Facebook Will Create Deceased Son’s ‘A Look Back’ Video

JohnBerlinVideo650While many Facebook users are suffering from overexposure to its recently introduced A Look Back videos, the social network honored a special request by St. Louis resident John Berlin, who wanted to see his deceased son’s video.

USA Today reported that Facebook will create an A Look Back video for Berlin’s son, who died Jan. 28, 2012, as his Facebook account cannot be accessed by his family.

The social network said it would take “a couple of days.”

Berlin’s video of his tearful plea to Facebook went viral, with more than 950,000 views at the time of this post, in just two days.
