Now this one has been a long time coming. Most people know that I don’t care much for Facebook. It’s not that I hate Facebook, I just don’t care for Facebook. If you love it and use it, good for you.
But I do have an account. Well, I did. See, I signed up for one years ago because a friend wanted to keep in touch. I remember my first thought being, “then why don’t you e-mail or call me?” I created the account, and, since he was my only “friend,” I went straight to his page…. It was like being dropped straight back into high school.
That was the first and last time I was actually on Facebook until today, and I only went in today to say goodbye.
I thought it might be somewhat difficult to delete the account, but I was actually surprised at how simple it was.
- Go to the Help screen and do a search on the word “Delete.”
- Scan the results for something to the effect of permanently delete your account. You may have to look at additional results, and you might have better luck doing a search on “permanently delete.”
- At the bottom of the help file for deleting your account is a link. Click it.
- Follow the fairly simple steps from that point on.
It took me all of two minutes and, in 14 days, my account will be permanently dead and gone (kind of like my high school days to tell you the truth).
Like I said, it’s not that I don’t like Facebook (or my high school days). It’s more that I don’t need it.
I reserve, of course, the right to change. I’m a brat that way. 🙂
