Does Facebook Make You Immortal?

Not to be insensitive but I noticed recently you can still make Facebook friends with dead people. That’s right. I have clicked onto Facebook profiles of human beings and a few dogs whom I know for a fact are deceased and not only do they still have their Timeline’s intact but they are still adding friends! Some of these dead people and pets are adding more FB friends then I am, and I’m not even dead  yet, which is a little depressing. I feel jealous of some dead people because they are more popular then me. I sort of figured as I got older and got more wrinkles, etc. (see recent FUPA post) that I could at the very least outlast the more popular but far more deceased individuals on Facebook. I was hoping my problem with “social comparison syndrome”, constantly comparing myself and my life with others would resolve itself over time and due to attrition, sort of like the “Turtle and the Hare” parable. How do I compete with really popular dead people? They dont even age and everyone only says great things about them as if they are/were perfect. It’s all so unfair.
