    I have deleted my facebook, myspace, twitter… There’s this push by the world to make ourselves available 24/7, and to share everything. Not anymore for me.

    I have been trying to delete my Facebook account. It’s like the
    Twilight Zone. Twitter was easy. There is some value in all this Social Networking, but not for me. I did not particularily care to deal with some of the perfect strangers that were popping up.
    Talk about social leveling. I am done to one e-mail account and one discussion group- that may go also; yes I can live without it. The Data mining and constant sense that I’m being toyed with
    I just don’t need it. It’s been a Month the Facebook account is
    scheduled for final deletion today, won’t touch anything for a few days and see what happens. Cheers.

      Yup, just checked. Now FaceBook has sheduled my account to be deleted Sept.6. They will just keep stringing you along.

      Very poor business practice. These little games will most
      certainly lead to government regulation of the Internet.
      I DO NOT recommend Facebook at all.

      Closed YouTube account no problem. I kind of like Youtube; however, they seem to be getting on Facebooks interconnectivity Bandwagon.

      Time to play hardball with Facebook; will contact them.

      Most of my reviews and comments have been deleted from
      Amazon.com, working that backwards also- give away my content for free? I don’t think so.

      I am not naieve, this is all stored somewhere and in that sense never really is deleted; but, will get no more from me.

      Two can play these games. Facebook SUCKS!!!!!

    Amen! I just turned 26 and finally deleted Facebook & all my other social networking accounts. I felt so liberated I Googled to find others that have done so as well. Which is why I am commenting :) I no longer have to be informed of too much information of family & acquaintances..even strangers. Too much info can garner judgement in my own life…and I reconciled that I would much rather see people from their TRUE character rather than a censored internet facade or profile. Thanks for your thoughts. It’s good to be FB free :)

    Haha I just recently started watching south park and that’s the same episode that convinced me to quit facebook. It is dumb and I didn’t think much about it at first but it really does creep into your head after a while.

    Thanks for a great read :)
    Loved this comment “With more connectivity, I ended up less connected.” So so true…
    Have read a number of articles on reasons to leave facebook and am more convinced than ever this is the way forward.
    I deactivated only 4 days ago because aside from reconnecting with some old friends, I think Facebook brings nothing positive to my life, more often than not I would log off with information overload and then thinking….what the hell am I doing wasting my time with this crap? So enough!!! I know to delete completely might be a more lengthy process and I may have to sign on again to get some friends personal contact details in the future but after that I will say farewell f***book and hello to the real world. X
