Dear Mr. Zuckerberg,
the Movement for Account Corpses can't await your initial public offering. For many years now you have been helping to strengthen the community of account corpses by offering a highly complicated Facebook account deletion process. Therefore we would like to express our heartfelt thanks to you!
But recently we read in the New York Times that you offend tens of millions of proud Facebook account corpses by calling them 'active users'. At the same time we receive complaints like the following almost every day: "My supposed active account keeper did not stop by for years now, that's why I have to watch all the advertising targeted specially at him."
Dear Mr. Zuckerberg, just because an account keeper presses the 'Like' button somewhere on the internet, shares a twitter message or has some automatic Facebook updates running which he doesn't know anything about you cannot withdraw the account corpse status from our members! We are sure that was just an oversight on your part. But for the account corpses concerned - who are often highly sensible individuals - this oversight is of the greatest importance.
Account corpses too have a right to see advertising which is targeted specially at them. Therefore we ask you urgently to indicate the account corpse status of Facebook account corpses in an appropriate way. We will be happy to help you with the realization.
Recognizing your expansive internet activities it would be also more than appropriate that users who are registering on facebook just in order to use third party services could sign in as an account corpse from the very beginning.
The implementation of an account corpse status is even more important, since problably up to 8,2 billions of Facebook account corpses (calculated on the basis of the 90-9-1 formula by Jakob Nielsen) are waiting to be recognised as such by you. Dear Mr. Zuckerberg, please publish the total number of registered Facebook accounts, so that we can calculate the total amount of Facebook account corpses.
If you have indeed given birth to more account corpses than there are people wandering around on earth, the Movement for Account Corpses would be very happy to immediately offer you our Honory Presidency.
The Second Life based Movement for Account Corpses was founded by the avatar Muji Zapedzki and her account keeper Susanne Berkenheger in 2007. By general request of the account corpses scene the movement declared to represent the account corpses of all metaverses and online communities in the very first month of its existence. The estimated number of our members runs into tens of billions.
We are looking forward to your reply.
