Hi spence, being that i live about five thousand miles away from the rest of my family, I am hooked on fb. Trying to get anyone to sign up on a different service would be next to impossible. Not too long ago, I tried to get a few people that exclusively use WhatsApp to install Jitzi meet on their phones so we could video chat from my computer, no one did.

FrakkedUpBook is just about closed... I gave all family one last chance to follow me or give me an updated e'mail address... it was rather eye-opening to see how long ago most of them had interacted with me... so... sayonara... they know where to find me. Not every single family member is meant to travel forward with us in life. Most are too busy with their cares and worries to even notice we are gone from that place... So I am removing myself from their equation.

Family... isn't what it's cracked up to be... besides, don't think most folks truly understand karma...

but no matter, all our lives are as intertwined as we allow them to be...

You've tried reaching out. If they're "too busy" to get back to you, that's their loss. You're right, though, some people just seem too absorbed with themselves to even bother contacting family members. I think it's safe to say we all have those family members we rarely see.

Bingo... their loss... I get that my younger family members are busy raising kids and working... but an occasional hey what's going on really isn't too hard to find a few minutes for. Then there are the older family members who complain about being bored and lonely, when all they have to do is message, txt or call... I've run outta fucks to give about them.

 It'll be interesting the next time I'm out at a local party and get accosted by all the folks I used to be connected to on frakkedUp... "Did you unfriend me? Well I never"

"That's right, You never responded to anything, but now it's my fault?

Oy...

So... I blocked all FB contacts... unliked all the FB pages... and downloaded my archived... two months ago now...

But #FBCodeKiddos must be spooked... not only have they relocated the #deletemyaccount page away from it's former logical location alongside #deactivatemyaccount... they've broken it... it never loads... I've tried on both machines and on my phone... yesterday, I pondered if my hosts file might be interfering and changed it's name...  clicked on the #delete link... walked away... 15 minutes later... 30 minutes later... 3 hours later... it never loaded...
 >:(

Given that Zuckerbooger admitted they have profiles for folks who have never opened an account built from all the idiots who clicked "upload my contacts to find your friends on FB" ... I'm thinking mebbe it's best to just hold on to my account and monitor it for misuse?

Then today I discovered one of my long ago closed twttr handles being used... even though twttr always maintained that old/closed handles would never be allowed to be reused

Maybe MeWe is a better solution for social networking, I don't know.  But, yeah, Spence, that's pretty bad.

I've been on MeWe and Vero since March @perknh. I enjoy their no advertizing, no algorithm, no dataming, no facial recognition, no nonsense models.... Vero is more for photographers and those who enjoy wandering the world from the comfort of their homes. It rather replaces my flickr photo stream.

MeWe has all the same sorts of groups FB does, but it's more like G+ in that you must join a group before things begin filtering through your "stream" I find their phone app highly intuitive, but most of my friends who have joined seem not to.

I'm pretty disgusted with FB and am in the process of referring the matter to our state's attorney general.

I think there's literally no way to delete a Facebook account. What you can do is stop logging in. After a certain amount of time, the account will become inactive, essentially deactivated. But, they won't delete it.

4 months ago I was easily able to schedule the account for deletion @scifidude79... but a family crisis kept making me need to negate the deletion process in order to help my sister out.... so this is a recent change in FB strategy...

Really? Hm, I didn't even know they ever had the option. But then, I was only on there briefly a few years ago, and they made it clear that accounts couldn't be deleted at that time.

Never had any dealings with the AG, but I met with Congressman Tom O’Halleran (AZ-01), last year. He tasked his staff to reach out to local officials, to help me with some labor issues. Katie Hobbs (Senate Minority Leader) & Rebecca Rios (House Minority Leader) answered the call. I met with them at the State Capital, later, and it was resolved.

Great bunch. They might be able to help you out, if the AG isn't interested.  ;)
