Leaving Facebook…

How I left Facebook… (inspired from here – if nothing else check out the picture at the bottom of the link)

  1. Exported Birthdays to Google Calendar (Go to Events -> Birthdays | Then go to bottom.  Click Export. Change webcal to http. Download ical file for storage and import whenever you want)
  2. Download photos that you might want
  3. Download your full account
  4. Delete the account, it will take 14 days so start it now… (remove anything that uses the account, logging into Facebook Facebook IM, the iPhone app or anything else cancels the deletion)

I’ve actually felt more connected to people since I left Facebook.   I guess maybe because the whole wall thing, is basically yelling at someone for everyone else to hear.
