Facebook be-gone!

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).

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.
