Facebook: Check Out Never Leave

Facebook membership is turning out to be a little more sticky than anticipated.

People are comparing Facebook membership to the likeness of gang membership; the only way out is in a coffin.

One can see the little “deactivation” button to cancel the account. But clicking on it is not all the process entails.

In the New York Times article, Maria Aspan wrote that the process is not as easy as it looks.

Aspan said one has to delete everything from the profile, line by line; every wall post, every group membership, every message, everything. And even after this is done, with a simple search, names and proof of membership can still be found.

The only way people were successful with terminating their membership and becoming untractable in the Facebook community was to take serious action.

One man sent the makers of Facebook a link to a video feed where he is seen discussing his dilemma with their networking site on national television.

Today, clicking delete is not as easy as it used to be.
