Facebook Responds to Emotional Plea from Grieving Father



For
one father, Facebook's release of ‘Look-Back' videos, which presented users a
personalized slideshow of their photos and statuses since joining the social
media network, was a harsh reminder of a painful loss.



John
Berlin, according to his February 5 post on YouTube, lost his 21-year-old son
of undetermined natural causes on January 28, 2012.



"I'm
calling out to Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook," Berlin said in the video,
choking back tears. "Well my son passed away January 28, 2012 and we can't
access his Facebook account...all we want to do is see his movie, that's
it."



Berlin
pled for family and friends to share the video in an attempt to make it go viral.



"Maybe
somebody will see it that counts," Berlin said. "I know it's a shot
in the dark but I don't care. I want to see my son's video. His name is Jesse
Berlin. Please help me."



The
video was viewed over 765,000 times in just a day, and Berlin saw results.



"The
response is overwhelming," Berlin wrote in the comments under his video.
"We just wanted to see a 1 minute vid. We're going to get that vid. FB
contacted us and they're going to work on that vid. I want to thank everyone,
for your support. I didn't know what to expect from this but it was worth a
try. My son was 21 and died of natural causes, his autopsy came back
undetermined. He is proof that there are no guarantees in life. Hug your
children kiss them. Tell them you love them every single day. Again I thank
every single one of you, even the dislikes. God Bless."
