With the growing public concerns over privacy handling at Facebook, many are now choosing to delete their accounts. I have also now been tipped over the edge by the recent connections shenanigans and these quotes from Zuckerburg. I'm tired of having such little control over what is shared and no longer see enough of an overall benefit to remain a part of this social network.
It's not that I feel incapable of navigating the plethora of privacy options, nor do I not trust myself to post responsibly, I just have no desire to stay. So I've spent the last hour deleting information, photos and applications in preparation for requesting permanent account deletion next week. To let folks know, I've also created an event.
If you want any of the photos or information that I previously shared then please email me, in fact my preferred method of contact from now on is email. Anything I feel like making publiclly available on the internet will generally be published or linked to on this website (i.e. under my control). I've saved a list of friends and email addresses so it's not like I won't be able to speak to anyone. Now that i'll probably be out of the loop though, drop me a text or email every once in a while to let me know what you're up too!
Also, Diaspora* looks fucking cool...
