I supposedly just permanently deleted my presence on Facebook. It says it takes 30 days to go into effect in case I change my mind lol. Has anyone else permanently deleted instead of just deactivating their account?

I thought I deleted mine in 2012 but checked to see if it was still there in 2017 and it was. I got sucked back in. Wish I never would have.

My wife opened an account for me about 12 yrs ago with asking me. I came home from work and she told me I already had 2 friend requests. I had no idea what she meant so she told me she had set up the fb account for me and I told her immediately to delete it. I said, you know, there's a reason I haven't talked to most of those people in 15-20 years. The people I want to talk to I call or go see them.
So I had an account for almost a day and haven't had one since. I haven't missed out on anything as far as I can tell.

My obnoxious politically charged niece deleted facebook on advice of a family counselor a couple of years back. She and her counselor came to the conclusion it was unhealthy. She would post some of the most inflammatory and inane crap imaginable causing some concern and friction within the family.

Now she's on Instagram and TikTok posting the same crap. Go figure.

Social media is an addiction we are only just beginning to understand. A very dangerous one which feeds off of your impulses. It will hijack your mind, manipulate your emotions and compromise your ability to reason.

I guess it's like a divorce, they are giving you a cooling off period to see if you really mean it. I only deactivated mine. That was close to 3 months ago. I guess I should go ahead actually delete it.

Similar but different for me...years ago came home from work & wife starts preaching the praises of how FB is a must & listened to the sales speech which made up my mind right away.

I've made it a quest to keep fair weathered friendships at bay these days.

ANAYWAY, it wasn't the NEXT DAY that I walk through the door & get the dreaded spousal stink eye & then 20 questions about 'who is this such & such gal...why is she contacting me to ask how you are doing / if I'm joining FB'. I'll honestly say I lost it & went on the immediate defensive & was perfect example of why I knew FB wasn't for me & it ended there. Had friends over the next year call & ask why I didn't sign up & told them my feeling / example only to still hear buddies to this day exiting for various reasons.

Told my son back in Jr Hi not to open one & he had a short lived FB life I still don't know the whole story on...it works great for my daughter but mom watches over it. She also is taking the $150 to close down her account through the election. I guess it has it's place but I'm not a fan & glad a lot of folks have a good gig going with it. Just sad to hear that it's one of the leading causes that ultimately leads to infidelity / divorce.

I too have zero SM & that includes linkedin which may be a mistake & am considering albeit late to the game...snake bit.

Deactivated 3 months ago. Getting too stressed. Realized I would never talk sense into someone over the internet. Thinking about deleting but need to get my pics first. Miss marketplace but broke anyway.

I deactivated mine years ago then fired it back up last spring to sell my boat. My buddy invited me to some hunting groups, one of them a thermal group. Got on one day and saw a raffle for a pulsar thermal, threw $30 at it and won.

I don't add people and I delete anybody who is annoying, especially people who are too political. I'm not there for that. The marketplace is handy and some of the groups are cool.

I don't use it for keeping up with people who I haven't seen in years, if I don't talk to you now frankly I don't care what you are up to.

Left 6.5 years ago. I couldnít stand all the crap then. Canít imagine how ridiculous itís become. Everything was so hyperbolic 6 years ago that I thought it couldnít be worse....but from what I gather it did get worse.

I love this monthly thread to read how someone has deleted all social media or social media is addicting....

While posting those opinions on social media.

Like, I donít do social media, I only do twitter or instagram or 2coolfishing and naturally TBH...
