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

Don't ever play games on Facebook. I talked to a scammy marketing company a while back, and they proudly told me how they've created some games on Facebook. To play the games you do that "give permission" thing, and they use it to grab all your personal data and sell it.

None of that crap ever passed my smell test. I block all those games.

The first one is pretty creepy, but you can prevent your profile from showing up in search results and limit who can send you messages and friend requests.

You can also block others from seeing who you are friends with.

The 3rd thing is pretty much true for the entire internet, outside of the obvious like banks using your account info to buy stuff... it's generally a good idea to only have stuff in your profile that you would bring up casually to a friendly acquaintance. It's not like facebook is unique in that regard.

Also none of these companies are associated with TransUnion or Experian.

I wouldn't go that far. I've kept in touch with dozens of friends who I probably would have never seen again if it weren't for Facebook. And since we maintain that mild relationship, it doesn't seem awkward to say "Hey, I'm coming to town!" and then meeting up in person.
