They make it unbelievably difficult to delete your messages. You used to be able to click "delete conversation" and all the messages would be deleted. Now you have to manually go through and click every single message, i'm talking every little "hello" or "hi" or "got any weed" .. there is a check box next to each one and you have to go through and click each box. Then once you have done that the messages are still visible on the other persons inbox unless they go through the same excruciating process to delete them. And I know they do all this on purpose so that you just say "fuck it" and leave your information out there. And if you think "oh i know, i'll be clever and just delete my account" well, there is no deleting your account. You can deactivate it , but all the information is still there, saved in their database. So if you really want to "delete" your account, you will have to go through and individually unlike everything you have liked "movies, music , interests, etc.." , you willl have to individually delete every message, every picture, every post... And once you do all this there is still pictures that other people have posted of you which you cannot delete unless you personally ask that person. It's just really fucked up how deep in it you are really getting when you sign up for the site that is "Free, and always will be." even that slogan is eerie sounding, isnt it? Even if you go through and remove everything manually (a 24hr+ process no doubt) , the information has more than likely already been saved in their database from the moment you made it public knowledge. If i knew what i was getting myself into back in 09' i would have never entered. I mean I guess it really doesn't matter because once you are dead it wont matter ... but still man, talk about an invasion of privacy.
