    But unless you went into his page and scrolled through his "likes" you wouldn't know for sure if he did "like" that page at one time, perhaps to get a coupon, or because he "liked" something posted by that entity that maybe appeared on one of his friends pages, not noticing that that would make him like the page too.

    FB will put your name in a "like" ad months or years after the initial "like" -- so that part is random.

    FB does have a memorializing feature that people can use to lock down a deceased person's page. When a page is memorialized, it can no longer be altered and, according to FB, those names are no longer used in any FB advertisements. Your cousin's page must not have been changed from active to memorialized. FB needs to be contacted by kin with proof before they will memorialize an account.

    I also think it is very easy to "mislike" a page using the mobile app. And I am sure FB does that on purpose.

    who doesn't want to wear the ribbon?!?
