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

Same here. I've got a close-knit group of friends from high school that I still keep in touch with and see regularly. Way back before Facebook was cool, I started a little tiny message board for us to keep in touch, but the software is now WAY outdated, and Facebook does basically everything it does better with a closed group.

Unfortunately, one guy (out of 5 guys and 4 wives) won't join Facebook, so I still have to check this stupid little message board from time to time just to see if he's posted anything.

Just join the damn thing under a pseudonym and don't "friend" anyone other than those in the group.

Yeah. Even worse when it's adults saying they're getting hacked by their kids. Seriously? You're barely 40 years old. Computers were around prior to your birth. The internet was accessible when you were in college. You're not 75 years old. Act like you have a ****ing clue. You weren't hacked by your kid, dumbass. And it doesn't make it sound like your kid is clever or smart when you claim they "hacked" you. It makes your whole family look stupid.

Me too. I'm old fashioned I guess. If I could get away with it, I wouldn't have a cell phone.

No shit! We have one friend who refuses to get an account & he misses shit every time we forget to send him a special e-mail or call him.

I work in the networking (computer) industry - so i tend to use terms that others use in the "general population" - i have been accused of using terms no one understands and some people get a little put-off - that is mostly in conversation however. Hence the term "hacked" - but yes - someone used a bot that generates passwords and guessed mine.

yes - true - I got out early and did not see any of these benefits - so you are correct.

Gotcha, just giving you shit... and yeah, one of the speakers at a recent company-wide meeting said "one thing we all have in common is that we can't ever explain to family and friends what we do for a living..." ...which is true, so I know the feeling.

My concern is that the IRS is using Facebook info to start audits. I remember the good old days when the Government had to have a search warrant to access your personal information and credit card accounts.
