Deleted Facebook Account

Just deleted my Facebook account that I've had for the better part of the decade.

Final straws were:

-Wife got gas at the local Sonoco and she told me later that day some random dude tried to befriend her on FB. She looked at his profile and he works at the Sonoco station.

-Companies associated with TransUnion/Experian are building credit risk profles based on who your friends are on FB.

-Email from FB yesterday explaining that any/all data submitted on your profile can be used for whatever purpose they desire.

CONS > PROS

Goodbye

Shit, what if you're out running around with people, you split up, and you want to meet up somewhere later.

Um, a cell phone would be handy.

That's not practical. You go home and check your home phone messages and then go to the place they wanted to meet at.

Same here... it's a requirement for work, and there's really no way around it.


Even if I wanted to live day to day without all of the conveniences of a smart phone, if nothing else, it sure would be a pain in the ass for other people.

Yeah that sounds like a great way to waste time and gas.

I've heard of that type of stuff. What do they do with this "personal data"? And exactly what personal data are they selling? I don't have my credit card info, bank account number or even my address on my Facebook.

A cell phone or lack thereof has no bearing on my work. In fact, at work the use of them is highly discouraged if not altogether banned.

I love my job.

You know there's a magicjack app you can install on a no-service phone and it will function as a cell phone? That's what we did for my ten-year old. Pay $20 a year which we were already paying anyway and she has my old smart-phone.

I've got the app on my phone and was actually using it when I went in the hospital. I used it up until the end of my old phone's life and probably would've installed it on the new phone but this htc sensation I have has it built in and will send and receive calls from my cell phone number. Pretty impressed with it. That being said, in terms of a home phone solution magic jack is freaking awesome.
