It took something like 3 months, but my facebook account is finally permanently deleted.
As some of you might know, I originally killed the account back in May. And then waited the required time for it to (supposedly) be deleted. But it wasn’t – it was just suspended. it seems that was JUST before facebook created a “real” delete for an account. And so, several weeks later, I had to log in, re-activate the account, and then re-delete it. And wait. And wait. And check back after the deadline, just to be sure.
All of this just in time, I might add, for me to realize I’ll probably have to get a new account anyway – to keep tabs on my kids when they get accounts. Gotta love digital parenting, yeah?
In other social networking news, I am looking forward to the September release of Diaspora. We’ll see if it lives up to it’s promises (and hype).
