For those interested in deleting their Facebook Account


Recommended Posts

I just deleted my Facebook account. Was imbedded pretty deep. Here's the info.
 
How do I permanently delete my account?
  1. Click in the top right of Facebook.
  2. Select Settings & Privacy, then click Settings.
  3. Click Your Facebook Information in the left column.
  4. Click Deactivation and Deletion.
  5. Choose Permanently Delete Account, then click Continue to Account Deletion.

 

Once that is done, they give a 30 day period in case you change your mind.

Thanks!

 

I never liked FB.  I got on it to communicate with family.  Several have already dropped FB as have the few friends I had. 

 

The only reason I have to stay on it is that I have administrators rights on our gun club FB account so I can post our match events and such.

This should be pinned to the top as a valuable public service announcement. ;)

They asked me for a reason for deleting my account.

I responded the same way. Switched to something called mewee, We will see how that works.

There's still SASS and other gun groups on FB, I'm also an adm. for The Pistoleros. I'm just following people I like and groups I'm interested in. I have a lot of friends and family on FB also. Good way to keep in touch with folks across the country.

I was going to do the same but I really really dislike zuckerberg and his cronies and policies.

Do a search on "Zuckerberg Ballot Boxes".

About MeWe, I'm FB friends with a SASS shooter who wrote that she'd signed up for MeWe with a photo of her at a SASS match (shooting her rifle) as her avatar.

 

When I looked for her they'd blurred the avatar. When I selected her the avatar changed to a comment something like, Adult Content 18 +. Today, it is blurred. When you select it you see the photo. Sounds FBish to me.

When I closed my personal and business Facebook accounts, they never asked why I was leaving.
"Censorship" would have been my reason as well.

However, FB did not ask, so I closed and deleted my accounts and walked away.
In the business world: "The hardest customer to get... is the one you just lost."

MeWe is in its infancy at the moment.
I cancelled all my accounts at Facebook, picked up a MeWe account just for a try-out.
There is a SASS guy over there trying to get a page started.

Deleted FB a week after the election and joined Parler.  Have actually started calling friends and family since then.  Dumped Amazon Prime last weekend and am signing up for John Lovell's, Warrior Poet Society Network instead.

Heck even Amazon Prime gives a warning on Andy Griffith Show for violence and drug use.

Unfortunately these left-leaning corporate monsters rule the western world now. It's a bit late to be creating and signing up for alternatives. Their only true market competitors are from China (Ali Express vs Amazon, Weibo vs Facebook) and I'm sure you can guess just how gun-friendly they are.

Last year FB locked me out for 3 days over a daily prayer I post. Yup, a prayer...

Note to folks on MeWe:

I had to do a password reset on my existing account.
This wiped out all my contacts and all my group memberships.

When I got logged in, my name had changed, said I was a member since March 2017.
This account was still attached to my email.

MeWe is having growing pains, so I wiped out my entire account and will start again.
Anybody looking for me as of this writing... I ain't there...

Also, I submitted a bug report.
MeWe creates a user profile for each device you use to connect at the time.
My bride has three:  phone, tablet and computer.
All are attached to her same email address.

This is a bug.
It makes it very difficult to make a contact request when you have three to pick from.
A request to her Phone profile is not seen on her Tablet or Computer.

Apparently, I won't be getting onto MeWe at all.

It says both of my email addresses are "already used", so I cannot recreate my account.
Oh well.
