Deleting Facebook permanently, I encourage you to do the same.

I have made this initially as a bulletin but they are only 10 days in length before being removed, so reposting here for posterity.


Original bulletin:

Facebook, Inc is a garbage creepy company. I do not like their business practices at all. That's not even counting the cesspool of a user base they're cultivating on the platform.

Because of those reasons I have decided after over a decade on Facebook with ~1500 friends. I am deleting it permanently come February 1st in favor of SpaceHey becoming my new non-business social network.

I encourage you all to make a post on your feed directing your friends and family to sign up to SpaceHey and friend you here too, then delete your account after a grace period.

Lets make Facebook as scared of SpaceHey as MySpace was at the rise of Facebook.

I have been on and off Facebook, but my partner has been trying to get me out of social media because all it does is frustrate me for no reason and it's not good for my sanity. I honestly am disgusted at how much of the internet we have lost thanks to them and I hope more people get the heck outta there.

I'll probably keep mine for business reasons, but I'm signing off otherwise

I did this about two years ago and never regretted it. It's so boring and oppressive.

I already did ages ago and the first thing I noticed is that as a grown man, myspace isnt really all that great anyhow. it's a LOT better tho, and this is only a recreation of it( a very good one tho)

Thank you for saying something like this. SpaceHey allows me the kind of privacy I need right now, even more so than what Twitter could provide. This matters a lot to me as a student of education requiring me to basically sacrifice a majority of my division from digital to real life.

I only stay on FB for the same reason as so many others. Out of necessity, not out of desire. I'm glad to see a new Old Myspace has arisen, however. I'm also glad I found this blog entry, it inspired me to give this place a shot after stumbling upon it. Fistie bump, my bruvah.

Hiya! I would love to delete my Facebook, but it's just the problem of that: One, I know too many older people that only use Facebook, and Two, Marketplace. Marketplace is so much more convenient to me than craigslist or eBay for just the main reason of that things sell out in minutes in my area.. like I sold a kids kayak and I got 5 offers on it within' 2 to 4 minutes, and along side it was a ladies crusier bike and it also got 5 offers within 5 minutes. I just couldn't leave it for those reasons and more, it's just too risky to lose it all. I honestly hate all the bad things Mark Zuccerberg does, (especially when it comes to privacy) but I stick with it anyways because it holds so many important things, and I couldn't let that go.
