Six years ago today my grandmother made a post on Facebook about how nice it was to finally be in the arms of Jesus.

Prompting a phone call to my mom:

👩 "Did Grandma die???"
👵 "What??"
👩 "Because I think she's Facebooking from heaven??"
👵 "... let me call my sister, I'll call you back."

Reader, she had in fact died and my aunt had posted as her.

For months afterward "Grandma" would make a post whenever a close friend had died, welcoming them into heaven.

Another call to my mom:

👩 "I am unfriending dead-Grandma from Facebook because I just can't with this anymore, and I don't care if anyone is upset about it."
👵 "That is a great idea."

Why doesn't the afterlife have its own social media platform? Is Jesus everyone's friend a la Myspace Tom? Also wouldn't Facebook be more of a Hell thing?
