I quashed my Facebook account using a dummy email account to do so. Then I zapped the email account. I’m not terribly confident that Facebook has actually eliminated all my details, but if it were to fall into the wrong hands somehow, I think my intention cannot be misinterpreted: I want to be less than a ghost.
But I find it interesting that after ditching Facebook, the three people who immediately took notice reacted rather bizarrely:
- Emma said: RIP facebook:)
- Melanie said: I saw you finally did it! Bravo! It takes a lot of courage to stay off
- Erin said: Emma mentioned you’ve broken free from facebook! Congrats!!
People will always have a love-hate relationship with FB. Still… intriguing!
