I've never really gotten into Facebook. I understand it in connection to Web 2.0 and how it is a good communication tool. However, I don't really need Facebook to communicate. Granted, good things came out of when I used it briefly this past year. I got to reconnect with people from the past and that was a treat. However, once you get in touch with people and you know how to contact one another, there is no use to being on Facebook. I don't see the point to reading people's status updates about this and that and who-knows-what. It's not a matter of time, really. It's simply a matter of interest. I'm just not into it.
A few months ago, I was told by people that various links to ads were being posted on their walls by me. The message that would randomly get posted on people's walls said something like "I thought you might like to read this" and then a link was attached to it. The links were usually to products and businesses. So, in short, my account got hacked or phished or whatever else they call it.
As a result, I tried to see about deleting my account. Only, you can't really delete your Facebook account. And I don't understand this. If I do not want a service I should have the right to reject it, right? I got another message today saying that my account had been recently reactivated which is very odd to me. So, I tried to deactivate it again. But then again, I don't know how long till the cycle will repeat itself.
So, my question to you all is, does anyone know how to delete a Facebook account?
