Or would you prefer if it lived on as a memorial? When YouGov asked British people their thoughts on this issue, the majority of older Internet users wanted their Facebook pages deleted. This was especially evident among users over 60 - 71% of them wanted their profiles deleted. Among younger users, it was more mixed. While 38% of 18-24 year olds wanted their page frozen, 23% wanted legacy contact.
