I have done what seemed to be impossible, I have been deleted from facebook. I created an account there about 3-4 months ago just to see what it was all about. I have never been interested in any kind of social networking site in the likes of Lunarstorm etc. and now Facebook. But one should never judge a book by it’s cover and you have to at least try it once. So I have tried it, and directly got tired of it.
If you have followed any kind of computer magazine for the last 4-5 months, there has been quite some controversy about the data retention policy of Facebook. In short, everything you upload or write will be stored forever and may be used by the company in any way they see fit. You couldn’t delete any data, and definitely not delete your account… This has however changed in the last few weeks, and as of last week you can actually get your account deleted(and by deleted I don’t mean deactivated). After about 4-5 emails to the facebook support I, today, received the confirmation that my account had been deleted.
So in the prepubescent word of the CEO of facebook Mark “I’m CEO… bitch” Zuckerberg, I shall henceforth be known as: Linus “I left you… bitch” Lejon Isaksson.
