Finished with Facebook
I can’t say that I have not seen this happening for a while. My presence on Facebook has been pretty much shut down before today. Just about everything I have on their is only visible to me. I also turned off the search option, so my account is not searchable. If anything, my Facebook friends list has gone down, especially since I have not added anyone in months.
The latest has been my fight with Facebook over how I display my homepage. I prefer to read the most recent items first. Facebook, however, kept changing the list to top stories. I would set it to most recent, and Facebook would change it back.
It ended up being the last straw. I have not deactivated my account… yet. But I have deleted links and apps. At least most of them. It seems I cannot delete the Facebook app off my Android phone.
I might someday return to Facebook, though, I think that at this point, if I return, it will be to finally deactivate my account.
