While many share the same name, “R.I.P. Steve Jobs,” the page with the most members is nearing 10,000 members at the time this article posted. Thousands of others have joined the other pages, which include “Thank You Steve Jobs,” which already has more than 5,000 members. Other Facebook pages include, “R.I.P Steve Jobs, You will be Missed” and R.I.P Steve Jobs (February 24, 1955 - October 5, 2011).

Apple, the company Jobs founded in the late-70s, must have sensed that people would want to express their feelings on Jobs’ death and established an email address for that purpose: rememberingsteve@apple.com.
