Well I had to post this information as to me it's quite interesting. Apparently the wikihow website's traffic spiked after they posted information on how to delete your facebook account.
Personally I think it's a sad state of affairs when someone decides to delete their Facebook account but if one has privacy issues Facebook's current install (it's funny because Facebook is indeed only an install (or is it>)) then I suppose I understand. Sometimes I feel if you have nothing to hide then...and if you do...then hide it.
The main point of the information is that it's really easy to deactivate your Facebook account but finding the delete button is much harder. I'll vouch for this as a few days ago I was checking out the account options to see what has changed since Facebook agreed to address Canada's Privacy Commissioner's concerns.
I'm not sure if Facebook has become more secure and private since their run-in with Canada's Privacy Commissioner but everything seems to be fine on my end.
With more respect to privacy, I actually do not run applications of any kind except for last week and in serious regret. Once I ran the application it got posted from me to all my friend's walls. Spam.
Have you deleted your Facebook account? Are you still concerned with the privacy issues? Again I'm of the class that believes if you want to keep something private simple keep it private and if you want to make anything public - join Facebook...It's fun especially if you have family members as your friends too.
