Deleting Facebook

After viewing this video about how Facebook is not only invasive and unethical but also dishonest I’ve deleted my Facebook account. I’ve deactivated my account in the past and reactivated when I found some service that required an account for authorization. Now I’m done. My account with all its data will be deleted and if there’s any service that requires a Facebook account for me to use it then they won’t have me as a user (this actually just came up with beta of Humin, a new service that looked pretty neat but has lost me as a member because they require a Facebook account for registration).

I haven’t been an active user of Facebook in years and their blatant disregard for the privacy of their users has convinced me to go from a passive member to a ex-member. You can join me by following this link.
