I have a second thoughts on permanently deleting my facebook account. I'll miss messenger. Do you know a way of permanently deleting account but without a messenger account?

· · Web · 3 · 0 · 1

@muzkore this is my current solution but friends can still find me when they want to tag me in theri photos. In the end I'm not visible on the list but the data is still there. I can feel dirty facebook finger on my data

@icanswiftabit I felt the same so I actually went through and deleted all of my content/activity. Took a while but it was worth it. Then I suppose you could leave it live so people coyld find you but there would be nothing there.

@icanswiftabit afaik, you can make an account for messenger without needing a facebook account (probably via the messenger app)

I'll confirm that because on a web, account creation redirects to FB page.

@icanswiftabit @robkam That's good to hear. Thing to consider is; how long will Facebook allow this? And also, I've heard that when going this route, FB will start nagging on you to create a Facebook account.

Tho' it also nags that for me on Instagram, a totally different social network, so there's that.
