Can you recommend some methods to successfully delete your Facebook account?
Even though I enjoy using this site for keeping in touch with old friends – the fact is, I don’t really ‘talk’ to any of them. It is more just being aware of what they are doing.
In all honesty, Facebook has only caused me to have problems in multiple relationships, as well as just being annoyed by the overload of other peoples problems which really don’t concern me, and which I really don’t want to know! Also, some things about myself or where I am I really do not need broadcasted. I especially would hate for someone important to begin flipping through the multitude of tagged photos out there of me, or even untagged ones.
I have significantly deleted a lot of ‘friends’ – those who I never speak to, or who were just merely acquaintances. However, the people that I actually speak with, I do not really use Facebook. It is either text message or phone calls.
Anyway, I have ‘deactivated’ my account multiple times. Unfortunately, all you have to do is log on and it reactivates it. Not really a solution. I usually just go through it when I am bored, procrastinating, or being nosy. None of those things in my opinion are healthy! If I am bored I should be finding more productive ways to stimulate my brain, rather than reading about everyone’s and their brother’s problems.
So, what I would really like to know is how you can successfully get rid of it. How can I delete it, without being able to easily get right back on board?
As they say, ignorance is bliss – and most of these things, aren’t necessary to know; or I would rather be allowed to not know!
