The internet is a powerful tool, especially when you can pull on the heartstrings!
John Berlin made a video, one that we posted just yesterday, pleading with Facebook to let his family have access to the 10 Year Anniversary 'Look Back' video for his son — who passed away two years ago.
John and his family had been struggling with gaining access to the page for the past two years, running into a LOT of roadblocks from Facebook, who claim everything was for security reasons. So John made a tearful video expressing his desire… his need… to see his late son Jesse's video.
It went viral, and it WORKED.
John will soon have access to the movie! Facebook called him yesterday to deliver the AH-MAZING news:
Not only that, but people have been creating custom videos for John and his family using the public content on Jesse's Facebook!
As you surely know, last week Serena Williams leaked her pregnancy news as she took to Snapchat to share a pic of herself at 20 weeks. However, not long after the photo went live, the tennis champ deleted it from the social media app.
Why?? Well, because the Olympic gold medalist wasn't quite ready to share her happy news with the world!
