Funny this thread cropped up. I always put off getting a facebook just becuase it seems like a very addictive and time consuming activity. To be fair,
it is fairly usefull in keeping in contact with lots of friends at once, but it isnt for me. I signed up about 2 days ago, the only details of myself,
was my name, but even then i didnt like putting in my full name, but you have to as part of the registration process. Added a few friends when i had
the time and it's easy to see how it could be manipulated. Some profiles contain way to much info.
After reading a bit of this thread, i tried to delete my account for two reasons.
1. It just seems to time consuming and just a bit of a hastle to keep up to date with it. 2. The reasons in this thread.
When i looked for the delete feature or button, i realised there isnt one. Instead of wiping your account away, you can only 'De-activate' it. And
if you sign back in it just re-intiates. So once you sign up and give information, thats it, that info is stored. I wonder why?
