The most powerful movie you’ll never see
One man’s desperate plea to create his late son’s Facebook video goes viral.
A grieving dad has asked Facebook to create a “Look Back” video for his late son, and his plea has gone viral…
Facebook "Look Back" Movies are taking over- the short, one minute collection of some of an account user’s photos and statuses. For one grieving dad
, this was a heart-breaking reminder that his son is no longer alive. Instead of giving up, though, this amazing father has gone the extra mile to see if he can get Facebook to create his late son’s movie.Missing the memories
According to Business Insider
, John Berlin
took to Youtube to address Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook, in the hopes that his short video would be shared: all he wants is to see his late son Jesse’s “Look Back” video. Jesse passed away two years ago; John has no access to his account.
Within a few short hours, John’s video has gone viral. Not only that, but he’s had a fantastic response from the guys at Facebook. They have reportedly offered to create a special video and then also see what Facebook can do to make things easier on grieving family and friends in other similar circumstances.
The personalised “Look Back” video of Jesse will be sent to his dad, and will not be made public: it's the most powerful Facebook movie you'll never see.

Facebook is a great way for family members to keep up with each other. Many of us curate photos of family times and holidays for ourselves and others to enjoy.
When someone dies, their passwords die with them. Facebook prefers family to create a memorial account for that person than for someone else to operate the original one.Do you store family memories online?
