Is that just quitting for that particular session though Addie, like Logging Out?

i have a fb account. i barely use it.

when i do, it's to keep in touch with certain real life friends that are fb junkies. they almost exclusively use fb to communicate with others.

i've had some trouble with it, though. an ex-gf won't leave me alone, and others i've met on various forums who i've befriended end up thinking i'm being unfriendly and rude because i don't chat with them on fb as often as they'd like. i just don't use it all that much.

the good thing is when i get a message there, my phone alerts me so i can check it out. otherwise, i rarely log in.

I am on Facebook. I love it.

For those who want to get out of it, you can't permanently delete your account, but if you go to your Account Settings, then to Security Settings you can "Deactivate" your account. For all intents and purposes this deletes your account (no one can go to your FB page, etc.), but if you decide at a later date to go back to it, you can reactivate your account.

i'm not sure about today (or, lol, in 5 minutes from now the way fb changes policy with minimum notification if at all) but you used to have to deactivate your account, then not attempt to log in again to your account for 2 weeks to have it take effect.

log in during those 2 weeks and it didn't happen.

Nope, I don't and don't care to have one. That is just me, I guess. There are much more meaningful things to do with a computer than that...... trying for figure out what to have for dinner, read blogs (I love doing that), keeping in touch with family the old fashioned way, email, things for work, Stumble-upon, photo processing, getting the news, etc.
