A mourning father has made a heartfelt plea to Facebook to see his deceased son’s ‘Facebook Movie’ and looks like Facebook answered.
John Berlin from Missouri recently got on YouTube to upload a video, pleading with Mark Zuckerberg and the Facebook team to gain access to his son’s profile. John’s son, Jesse, was 22-years-old and passed away on January 28th 2012. According to John, all he wanted to see was a video of his son’s life.
The Facebook “look back” video showcases the user’s years on Facebook – from the day of joining it to the present day.
It features and compiles some of your ‘best of’ moments and posts it in the form of a video to your profile. Facebook rolled out the ‘look back’ video on the account of its 10th anniversary.
The video posted by John Berlin on YouTube was titled, ‘My appeal to Facebook’, and is a heartfelt plea to Facebook to release his son’s video. Thanks to the nature of the internet, the video went viral on Reddit and Facebook. It shows Berlin fighting back tears as he explains the reason for making and sharing the video.
“You ever do something crazy because you just don’t know what to do anymore?” he asks. “Well that’s what I’m doing right now. I’m calling out to Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook.”
Facebook representatives saw John’s tearful plea and said they will definitely make it happen.
