(Note: No need to share that you deleted your account, sport. So did I.)


Given that it’s very difficult to actually delete your FB account (it will stay around for a year and undelete if you ever log back in), it seems like this is a good way to get your account actually deleted.

@craigmaloney @suetanvil don’t worry though: I’m sure they’ll keep a shadow profile around even if you can’t use the site; just to ensure you’re not up to no good, I’m certain
