Facebook was sued somewhere in the EU over this, and as a result was required to allow a proper account deletion, as well as giving you a way to gain access to all files they have on you.

The rest of the world can only deactivate, though.

EDIT: Holy shit has this been memory holed. I can't find anything on it. IIRC, the lawsuit was over the info in the profile of a little girl. Her/her parents couldn't properly ensure her info was destroyed when closing her account. When they won the lawsuit, Facebook provided them with 800+ pages of data on her account, from every message she ever sent to every picture she spent too much time looking at.

Last time I had an facebook account, I were able to delete it this way:
1. Log in.
2. Go to https://www.facebook.com/help/delete_account
3. Click "delete my account".

Maybe (((Faceberg)) disabled it since then.

Ah, been meaning to ask you a question. Are you able to have archived YouTube videos on your site, or would that be deemed copyright infringement?

Need to start looking for alternatives for facebook. It's a bad relationship and just remember with facebook you didn't put a ring on it so you owe them nothing.

They will never go away. They received money from the CIA, iirc.

I so wish peer2peer worked out on this mark. We had dabbling in this like Diaspora etc- but it appears that it was mostly fluff built in Ruby on Rails etc. wish something truly peer2peer worked out on this. Facebook has a hold on the maket due to penetration and monetization. Liberation of these networks much like the goals of cryptocurrency would be wonderful.

Blockchain and decentralized technology is coming and will lead to this change.

Add in stuff like the raspberry Pi and it's getting cheaper and cheaper to roll network nodes.

Still a few years off but it's coming, the market wants it and it will get built.

In addition to looking for an alternative, we can also start pushing legislators to shut them down/regulate them/break them up/etc, since their business model is based on market failures (network effects) meaning the free market alone can't manage them effectively, which is exactly why they're the only option and you have no viable alternatives, despite their being massive demand for an alternative.

I feel like I'm living in the twilight zone at times. FML for being straight and white. We still win though since they're triggered over this shit.

I don't support non-traditional marriage and lifestyles, but I have no desire to censor people who advocate for it. It's not worth my time and energy. People are going to live the way they are conditioned to live. I think we are at such a decadent stage of civilization that traditional culture needs to focus on just surviving and creating communities to support each other and be a beacon and refuge for those who are sick of degeneracy and hedonism and are hungry for guidance on how to live traditionally.

Aye. I have had to rethink my stance on Christianity for example. Used to be totally against it and had to do a 180.
