I joined Facebook because most of my friends and many of my colleagues were on it and kept asking me to join. So I created an account.
And then I waited for the Facebook fullfilment to happen -- you know, where everything is just so cool, and you just feel super connected to all your friends and family.
All I got was bizarre messages like "taking the kids to practice now" and "had a good day" and "hooray for this person (liberal or conservative celebrity). It was just, well, stupid.
So I haven't been on in months and years. Don't even know my user name or password anymore. I waaaaay prefer CAF for connecting with acquaintances, and the phone or church for friends and family.
And if you have any suggestions on how to actually close a Facebook account, I'd sure love to hear it.
Just follow their instructions. Keep in mind that due to the TOS, your account will never be fully deleted (just inaccessible to the public, generally) and any information you placed on it remains their property.
