Facebook responded this week to user complaints that it's virtually impossible to delete an account from the social-networking Web site.
A Facebook group with 10,000 members had been advocating for a simple way to delete an account. "Ever tried to leave Facebook and found out they only allow you to 'deactivate' your account? All your personal data, including photos, interests, friends, etc., will still be saved indefinitely! You don't have to be a conspiracist to find this quite fishy (or simply annoying)!" a group message says.
"It's like the Hotel California," Nipon Das, a director at a biotechnology consulting firm, told The New York Times. "You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave."
As always, this site (or the original Facebook group) is quoted!
