When you run a national chain of funeral homes and cemeteries, providing sub-par customer service can lead to larger-than-ordinary headaches.

The social media network announced Friday it is changing its restrictions to access “memorialized” pages, so they will now be visible to everyone the user opened their profile to before they died.
