My wife is in the process of deleting her account. So, she downloaded an archive of all her activity there.

The scariest part is the "ads_and_businesses" folder. It contains all the businesses that uploaded data about her on FB. A list of all the websites visited, outside of Facebook, and when they were last visited.

Lastly, a list of all the ads she clicked on. Funny thing, she doesn't remember clicking any of those. But I can see why she might have ;)

From a home timeline on , it takes 9 clicks, and entering the user password, to trigger an account deletion. Facebook asks you to confirm 4 times that you want to delete the account.

@xuv
We would do this but #Fakebook is to forcing us to give them personal info to just login. So…

That's what happens when you fight #overdevelopment and #gentrification, the treatment of #JulianAssange and #selfDrivingWeapons.

@xuv I wonder how many people on Merveilles have a Facebook account, if I had to guess I'd say almost nobody has one.

Facebook 

@neauoire good question. I'd guess it's 30% (based on absolutely no research or evidence :) )

And to be clear, it's not my account but my wife's account we just deleted. Mine, I deleted it when Trump was president-elect. And I never regreted that :)

@xuv then you gotta make sure you don't log in for a whole month

@xuv yup... A new kind of captivity
