2504 Steps to closing your Facebook account.

(edit: Thanks Julien, for introducing me to the awesome destructive power of Digg.) ;)

Yes, it's true! I finally managed to close my Facebook account. It was a long, arduous road - the hardest part was slaying the Gorgon on level 16 - and I'm glad it's finally over.

If you, cherished reader, are wondering why I would do such a thing, then wipe those potato skins off the top of your Bananarama tour t-shirt and keep reading:

I already left Flickr, Myspace, Youtube, and most of the other similar web services because they want to eat our babies. The process was fairly straightforward for each of those (Though Flickr ends it with a pretentious fuck-off: "Thanks for using Flickr. See ya!" Whatever. Goddamn wankers).

Facebook, however, was a much more interesting endeavour. You see, you can't really close your Facebook account once you open it; you can only deactivate it, which I somehow missed when reading their 913 page privacy policy:

Changing or Removing Information

Access and control over most personal information on Facebook is readily available through the profile editing tools. Facebook users may modify or delete any of their profile information at any time by logging into their account [though we don't provide any means to delete more than one item at a time, which is about as enjoyable as having your nose picked by Andre the Giant]. Information will be updated immediately. Individuals who wish to deactivate their Facebook account may do so on the My Account page. Removed information may persist in backup copies for a reasonable period of time [Eternity is reasonable!] but will not be generally available to members of Facebook and by 'generally', we mean sometimes, and by 'members of Facebook', we don't mean our corporate and government buddies named Clives or Dustin who come golfing with us on the second tuesday of every month, after the Freemason meeting].

Emphasis mine.

When I first wanted to leave Facebroke after seeing an ex-flame post ridiculous badly photoshopped pics of her in a bikini , I must've missed the subtle distinction between 'DEACTIVATE' and 'CLOSE MY FUCKING ACCOUNT YOU GODDAMN CAPUCHINS'.

Maybe it was a gremlin in the system, but I kept receiving emails from Facebook - I couldn't find out how to leave their subscription list. I kept digging until I tried logging in again with my 'deactivated' account. To my surprise, they sent me an email telling me how to 'reactivate' my account - meaning that Facebook still kept a copy of all of my personal data, indefinitely. No offense, guys, but what the fuck?

It's one thing when I choose to leave a web service (Flickr, Youtube) because I don't want them profiting from my content. It's another when they prevent me from leaving. Is this really the only choice we have left? Shitty web companies vs. shitty web companies that keep and distribute your personal data ad infinitum even when you request your account to be closed?

As it turns out, I had to 'contact' facebook and ask them how to delete my account, only to find out that I have to manually delete every single minifeed item, friend, post, wall writing, etc by hand, one-by-one, or else they will refuse to close your account. When you're a member of the Internet High Society as I am, you find that you have thousands of these items to delete.

Here's the complete transcript of the conversation I had with "Lucy From Facebook". You'll find me tedious, boring, petty, and acting like the douchebaggiest dick you'll ever know. In other words, it's just like meeting me in person.

Hello,

I've recently "deactivated" my Facebook account, but cannot find a way
to completely delete my account.

I would like all of my information to be wiped from the facebook
servers.

Please delete my account en related information in its entirety (my
account email address is steven [at] stevenmansour.com), or send me
instructions on how to do so myself.

Thank you for your time,

s.

Hi Steven,

If you deactivate, your account is removed from the site.
However, we save all your profile content (friends, photos,
interests, etc.), so if you want to reactivate sometime, your
account will look just the way it did when you deactivated. If you
do want your information completely wiped from our servers, we
can do this for you. However, you need to remove all profile
content before we can do this. Once you have cleared your
account, let us know and we'll take care of the rest.

Thanks for contacting Facebook,

Lucy
Customer Support Representative
Facebook

Hi Lucy,

I've removed all profile content from my account as per your request.
Now, please go ahead and completely delete my account
(steven [at] stevenmansour.com).

The procedure to close an account on Facebook is needlessly convoluted
and unclear. To bring itself inline with privacy policies dictating good
behaviour on the web (see http://www.privacyinternational.org/ ), it
would be a good idea for Facebook to give users a one-step option to
close / delete their account instead of just 'deactivating' it, which is
misleading (if not blatantly dishonest) to users.

Please let me know when my account has been completely destroyed.

Thank you,

Steven Mansour

Hi Steven,

I apologize, but you have not completely deleted all of your
information. You still have incoming and outgoing messages,
wall posts, mini-feed stories, friends, and contact information
remaining on your profile. Once you have completely removed
all information from your account, I will permanently delete it for
you.

Thanks for contacting Facebook,

Lucy
Customer Support Representative
Facebook

I'm sorry, but it is unreasonable to expect users to manually delete,
one-by-one, each and every bit of information / friends / "notes" / wall
writings that they've posted or that other users have posted on their
accounts. It would take me hours to delete each wall post and feed
story.

It would be far easier for you to simply delete my account - and asking
me to manually erase each entry is unnecessary.

At this point, you have two choices:

- You can stop giving me the run-around, and just delete my account so
that everyone will be happy, or

- You can refuse to comply with your own privacy policy and user
standards, in which case I will be forced to escalate this situation.

Please advise,

Steven Mansour

Hi Steven,

I apologize for any inconvenience, however this is our privacy
policy for permanently deleting accounts. I am unable to delete
your account unless you have personally removed all of your
information. You may either completely clear your account so
that I can finish this process for you, or you can leave your
account deactivated. Let me know if you have further questions.

Thanks for contacting Facebook,

Lucy
Customer Support Representative
Facebook

Lucy from Facebook,

I've removed all my private data.

Close my account.

Hi Steven,

We have processed your request. Let me know if you have any
further issues.

Now, most people won't get why this is such a big deal. But it is a big deal. Your personal data, especially on the web, is something that will be increasingly valuable to corporate and government interests - and increasingly important (and, perhaps, difficult) to protect.

I'm reminded of being at the SaveTheInternet.Com party in Memphis (Christ, what the fuck is a "YouTuber"?) where everyone was giving each other handjobs over how they spread the message about Net Neutrality and beat the telecoms with the help of Google and Yahoo. They didn't realize that they helped win the battle, but in doing so, they lost the war. They turned a blind eye to their supposed allies and failed to apply the same yardstick to measure privacy neutrality as they did to network neutrality. Google is ranked as one of the worst privacy firms on the net.

I don't know about you, but I like the idea of being in charge of my own private data, and controlling access to it accordingly. There will be lots of interesting battles fought over this in the next few years, so whatever you do, make sure you think long and hard about just how open you want to be with you own privacy - and whether others will treat it with the same respect as you do.

This handy chart should help you decide who to trust with you data and how to stay ahead of the curve on the interweb of the future:

Is it at all possible that people who wish their accounts deleted, have their information saved in the Facebook server archives for the purpose of including these "inactive but saved" profiles in any member count done by the company, in an effort to give inflated membership numbers for the purpose of making Facebook seem to be growing? Facebook has had its' sights set on overtaking Myspace for some time. It is my hypothesis that they keep your accounts in their archives for this exact purpose. Again, just an educated guess. Thoughts or comments anyone?

Thank you for the post!

Sincerely yours, torrent search engine.

Seems someone is paying attention at FB.  Following a number of attempts to delete my account in recent months and more recently reading this thread I logged back in (which of course triggered a reactivation) to do what was suggested below...

 

Hi,

Facebook users have the option to either deactivate or delete their accounts. The differences between the two options are described below.

If you deactivate your account, your profile and all information associated with it are immediately made inaccessible to other Facebook users. What this means is that you effectively disappear from the Facebook service. However, we do save your profile information (friends, photos, interests, etc.), so if you want to reactivate at some point, your account will look just the way it did when you deactivated. Many users deactivate their accounts for temporary reasons and expect their information to be there when they return to the service. You can deactivate your account through the "Deactivate Account" link on the Account page.

If you do not think you will use Facebook again and you would like to delete your account, you can do this yourself at the following address:

http://www.facebook.com/help/contact.php?show_form=delete_account

Please keep in mind that once your account is deleted, you will not be able to reactivate the account or retrieve any of the content or information you have added.

If you are currently unable to access your account, you will need to reset your password in order to log in. In order to do so, click the "Forgot your password?" link that appears above the field where you would normally enter your password. Entering your login email address on the next page will cause a new password to be sent to that email address. Once you receive your new password and can log in, you can deactivate or delete your account using the steps outlined above. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Thanks for contacting Facebook,

The Facebook Team

Hopefully in 2 weeks time the whole thing should be gone!

Melanie, you are wise. The best comment I've seen here (I haven't read all of them, though). Most of these people seem to spend a majority of their time indoors, on the computer, safe from most of the bad things they imagine may happen due to their nonsense posted on all of these juvenile 'spaces' and 'faces' places. My attitude is this; go outside, do something that doesn't require high thought (or spelling). For example, go to the local Salvation Army and serve food once in a while. Go to a nursing home and challenge all comers to a cribbage tournament. DO SOMETHING fer christ's sake! Others have said it and I concur; "what a bunch of whiners!!!). Geez, allright I'll answer the math question straight.

I worked in IT Networking and the Web for 20 years, all through the late 80's 90's and into the 00's.

I have never understood the desire to spread your personal information all over the planet for al land sundry to see. You wouldnt invite total strangers to look round your house, rummage thru your cupboards, and read all your post, so why do exactly the same thing online?

I have NEVER given my correct details online. Neither have I ever used  anything other than a throw away email addys. You must be mad to do so. Neither is there a photo of me online, anywhere.

You privacy is only worth keeping if you realise the value of it.

I just 'permanently deleted' an account ....I think! 

I followed the instructions on the this link:

http://antisocial.nectareen.com/how-do-i-delete-my-facebook-account/

Now I have to wait 14 days for the account to be permanently deleted.

To check if this really works, I sent a message to another facebook account.  Let's see if that message disappears in 15 days!

:)

 This is why I don't use any of my real info or Facebook or any other site. It's bullshit that they make you use your real name to begin with, which is why I was first suspicious and chose my gamer handle to use instead. It's also been very helpful in helping me hide from co-workers, bosses, exes, etc.

Yeah, very interesting....

About 4 years ago I told these fb's fascists and many many more xmas wishes etc.

The thing about me is that I am a professional photographer.....

Meaning I uploaded my portfolio in their FuckingBastards pages lol.

One day i took the hell outa there ! 'deactivated'.... But then I wrote to LUCY.... and she said they dont erase me for safety reasons....

I told them I am not a criminal and as I am the only person who finally decides on who will get my permission to keep sensitive info (data protection act) etc. they ought to shut the fuck up and erase it.

Lucy wrote back etc. then I told them that THEY VIOLATE COPYRIGHT LAW, by storing my images without my permission !!!

I ask the lucy-pussy and FB to PAY ME per month as they have my images and DID NOT BUY THEM = stolen !

pussy-lucy did not  come back with a single line..... Then I cursed them back for good, and also said that I will NEVER give for whatever reason my approval for sharing any of my images etc. with them and ofcourse with a line that YOU COMMIT ELECTRONIC CRIME ! concerning illegal copy-keeping etc.

After that they never come back. And really hope them the best in hell wishes ....

This is interesting I believe, as I am far more distant than you in the US.... and especially the copyright infrigement issue is quite good to get some cashback after suing the scams first.... Because, each time you take your own photo or a photo, you are the only copyright holder/ owner.

This means these scams, MUST PAY back one day !

In the agitation of “Everybody Draw Mohammed Day on face book”, I am going to unsubscribe the facebook account for ever. There is the notion of “Rights of expression” but it should not harm the sentiment of people, public order, decency or morality. Here in this case, facebook administration is going to strongly violate the sentiment and emotion of entire Muslims community of the world. They are not taking the care of feeling of more than 1 billion people. I am sorry to say that you are going to make indecency with the greatest leader of the world.

For the reason, I was left with no other alternative but to quit the facebook forever. I also appeal all the Muslims/ Non-muslims  to unsubscribe the Face book unless it repent it ways.

@ stevenmansour, First off, this was the funniest ish i've ever read when reading a complaint. This was beyond hysterical... I peed a little!! Second, I visited a couple of the links you  and other commentors provided and I must say, this is interesting, to say the least. It took me forever to get a myspace and facebook account and when I finally did, I felt naked instantly. I don't trust the internet, infact, I warned my friends about facebook before I ever knew all of this ish was goin on. I told them " have any of you ever thought that facebook is an evil plot by the Government to find and keep track of every single person in the world that we know? Did you ever stop to think that they may use all of this information against you in and out of a court of law? Like Enemy of the State?" Unfortunately, this was after I dumbly allowed my friends to coerce me into creating accounts. I must have threatened 100 times to delete my accounts with FB and MS but I never did. Needless to say after reading this article, I will be deleting these accounts for sure. What did you call them? Some Goddamn Capuchins!? Whaaat???! That was too damn funny, I am printing this and I am gonna read it everytime I get down cuz maaannn! I wish you could here me laughing. I am however, sorry you had to go thru so much ish!!! They always make stuff hard for people, it's all bullshit!!! You Know?

October 2009 I deleted my Classmates.com account due to privacy concerns, Google was caching my account info.

Now, May 2010 I find my (old) Classmate account information presented to me on Facebook, which somehow automatically imported all my education history! This is upsetting as I have not authorized any exchange of personal data, and that should not happen on a deleted account. What an aggressive, invasive dealing.

So I'm pulling the plug on Facebook, especially since its CEO Zuckerberg bragging (when he was 19) that he'd gathered personal information from thousands of users for the nascent TheFacebook.com. "People just submitted it," Zuckerberg messaged, "I don't know why. They 'trust me.' Dumb fcuks."

hello all,

my situation is a bit different but it pisses me off, as much as you yours ;> . Here's the situation: i never registered on facebook but when a friend of mine, who has profile there, wants to invite me, he gets this message: "one of the email addresses you entered cannot be invited. The person may be on facebook but with restricted privacy settings".  Maybe i don't understand this facebook scam too good (but hey - I don't have the profile! ) but this information is wrong, as I don't have the profile so I can't even "probably" have any privacy settings there. I contacted them 3 times about this issue, but they just gave me the "auto" answer to look in the faq. So,  I thought that maybe my email was compromised  and  there is a profile registered to my email, so I tried to reset the password. I got the answer that "the email you entered does not belong to any account..." . So wtf is going on here - anyone had this problem.?I  know it's not a big deal, but still, i don't want to be listed in their database as "probably having profile", as i never agreed to it.

ps.

I now remembered that once i got an invite from some random person and I may have ( i can't find this mail in my SENT folder) written to facebook that i don't want my email to be spammed by their network - maybe this is the reason? But still, this does not explain the "...may be on facebook with restricted privacy settings" part of the message.

Wow, I wish I had seen this earlier!

I have put in the request to fully delete my account, of course getting the 14 day notice that it will be deleted on July 10, 2010.  Luckily, I have never actually used my facebook account so I had no personal information to delete.  Now after reading this, I am wondering.. do they really take their sweet ass time with this and is it seriously going to take 2 weeks?  Anyone know about this 2 week "deactivation" period prior to deletion?

I am pretty appalled by all of this.  Thankfully, I havent (yet) had to go through what other people have gone through to get my personal information taken off entirely (email address in my case).  None the less, I am still livid that I have to wait 2 weeks to find out if they do in fact delete my account.  Aside from the fact that facebook doesnt even have a "Delete Account" option open to their users like most other sites, most other sites also give you a MUCH less time frame for permanent deletion (ie - the website says 48hours, but deletion occurs much sooner than that).

So lame.

The One That Is Incognito's picture

One day, after over a year of seeing everyone I knew from the outside in on facebook, I was driven so crazy by the fact that I could not contact them that I nearly joined Facebook. Then I found this blog article, and it changed the way I view the website. Thank you for opening my eyes to the potential danger that Facebook can be.

Mind you, I still would like to join Facebook, but I would like to do so in a way that will (hopefully) minimize the level of risk I am facing, and I would like to have the benifit of anyone's opinion on my plan.

Here it is: I will register with a fake name, a birthday that will only be off by a day or two,  and an email address (which will also have false information consistent with that on Facebook) created specifically for the purpose of sending emails to/receiving emails from Facebook and friends on Facebook. Once registered, I will change my onscreen name to my nickname (which friends know me by)  which will still not be associated with my true name. While on Facebook, I will not post any detailed contact information, and will be very vague as to where I live and my phone number. All other information (hobbies, likes, etc) will be true since they will be attributed to a person that does not exist.

Then when deleting my account, I will change back to my fake name, which hopefully will lead them on the wrong trail if they decide to do something sinister. I will also delete my email account, which, being the only thing outside of Facebook by which to contact me, will further muddy up the trail. Furthermore, as mentioned before, since such things as hobbies and likes and dislikes will belong to a person with different information than me, it will keep my true identity secret.

P.S. This was made assuming that photos, once taken off, will not be in their database.

So, what do you think?

My FB page was phished! The hacker had changed all my security questions and then blocked me. This was a week ago. They keep sending harrassing comments. Many of my friends have reported it. FB will not take anymore reports about it. They don't want the publicity. Then why the f*ck won't they take the page down? Identity theft is a crime! They are complicit in this crime by knowing I have been robbed of my identity and letting it go on. Tonight I am filing a police report. Maybe that will make them take down the hacked page. It has all my childrens names and birthdays on it. I'm sick of playing around with these jokers. I know FB is owned by a far right wingnut, but heh, he made his billions off of us! The least they could do is give me the hackers name. I hope to god they take this page down. I'm not going to rest until they do. They will be sorry when I get someone in the media to say something about this!

Son ... are you on drugs ? I mean the bad kind, not the kind those nice people at the asylum are telling you ... you're supposed to be taking ?

Kidding around, funny post ... share a hatred for the internet gestapos of the world. They suck, facebk sucks hardcore ... could say many things about them. But what would be the point, they and google are the suns our pathetic and meaningless by comparison lives rotate around. Im sure the owners of these entities are somewhere making luv to a gigantic stack of money ... while I am broke and reading this thread ... there is no justice, as such there is no privacy.

Hear facebook is planning on rectally probing its userbase in the near future. Just to show them  who's boss, how lowly and lucky they are to be allowed to use the site and they'll like it ! For facebook has decreed it so ... who's ya daddy 500 million facebookers ?!?! YOU ARE FACEBOOK, YOU ARE !!!

Well your comment system seems ok, but after rereading my post ... should probably go ahead and  poke my eyes out anyway.

This is obviously so they can keep you in their ranks and be able to brag about how many millions of users they have.  The number always grows because they get new users or they get people who "deactivate" their account, but very few actually leave for real like you did and I will soon do.

I plan to follow your footsteps soon, mainly because I dislike FB's privacy policy but also because I'm a bit too addicted to it and it gives me social stress.

Did you have to delete only those wall posts which were on your own wall or also those which you had written on someone else's wall? And what about comments on someone else's pictures, notes and stuff like that - did you have to delete those too? Is there any easy way to even see where you have commented?

i'm fed up with FB and the more i read about it the more i hate it...i also have some of my songs up there, which aren't published, so can anyone with the right knowledge tell me if this is acctually gonna delete everything i ever posted? after finding out what it's all about i was like "fuck, i've got pictures of me drunk there" :D...anyway my mistake that it took me this long to get informed, but what i've seen and read about FB made me disguasted....I would rather have a probe up my ass than a facebook account, thus the deletion and thus the question; does this acctually delete the account and everything posted??

I was just seeking this info for some time. After six hours of continuous Googleing, at last I got it in your web site. I wonder what is the lack of Google strategy that don't rank this kind of informative websites in top of the list. Generally the top sites are full of garbage. eadfeagkdbcd

The best way I can think of to combat these abuses is to unabashedly use social media to get pages like this viral. People react quickly these days. Google has a strong liberal bias, known federal guidelines for search returns, and functions to control public access to information; if you are finding it really hard to get to the bottom of something seemingly obvious but important you can reasonably suspect that the issue is being actively censured- yes ladies and gentlemen, the US and all major information services are playing with our perception of truth in a way that is remeniscent of communism and Papal Rome before it.
