However, the social networking giant has said that it would no longer tweak the settings and leave the pages/ accounts 'as they were' set by the deceased, The Verge reports.

Facebook said that it would respect the choice a person made in life while giving their extended community of family and friends ongoing visibility to the same content they could always see.

According to the report, the site would also agreed to allow the creation of its "Look Back" compilation videos for memorial accounts, after a father appealed to the developers to create such a video for his deceased son.
