I deleted my account over a year ago. I went through all of the steps to delete it. I received a confirmation saying my profile was deleted. It has no value to me, just as Facebook has almost no value. These things are just unnecessary noise. If you friend me on Facebook, great, I’ll say yes, but it has no meaning to me. I had hundreds of “friends” on Facebook prior to the concept of privacy lists. The last thing I’m going to do is spend valuable time assigning 1846 “friends” different privacy settings. Facebook missed the window of utility with me.
I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again, there is no way computer algorithms can interpret the complexities of real human behavior, mores, and meaningful human relationships– especially when the entire business model revolves around selling me meaningless shit.
But it’s better than LinkedIn. Although I deleted my account over a year ago, I am still getting invitations from people who want to connect with me on LinkedIn. LinkedIn, leave me alone.
