Why I Am Deleting My Facebook Account After University

I keep hearing more and more stories like this. Posting your life online for the prying eyes of others is bound to come back and haunt you at some point.

I have never had a facebook or myspace or whatever because I like to actually hang out with my friends and actually talk to people face to face, sounds weird huh. I remember when myspace was first becoming big I was in college and it was pathetic, my roomate was talking about how he was "myspace friends" with this girl in our econ class but when we were actually in that class he never talked to her, it was pretty pathetic.

Hey guys look, it's a technology cynic! I've never, ever, seen one of these before! I think if you poke him he'll reminisce about his arduous childhood and speak at length in rambling sentences about how much better the world once was!

LOL that is not me. I just want to avoid a similar situation happening to me.

jballa838 11-12-2007 08:38 PM

Vikes99ej 11-12-2007 08:39 PM

Well its not like i only talk to people on there, I use my account to talk to people if i dont have their phone number.. organize stuff. And actaulyl if im stuck at home just to screw around and it givees me somethign to do. I do still talk to a lot of people... its not like i cant socialize lol

That's what mine is currently set to. Only people who are on my Friends list can see anything more than my name, what networks I'm in, and my display picture (which is me in a suit, nothing unprofessional or incriminating). Still, I would feel safer just not having it online at all once I'm in the world of professionals.

litlharsh 11-12-2007 08:46 PM

What if they find all your posts here?

Hence why I don't post my real name here...

I'm sure my last employer could have found out though since I spent so many work hours on here. :D

litlharsh 11-12-2007 08:50 PM

But we all know your first name...

I will prevent you from ever getting a job. baahha

You have no idea.

mikehop05 11-13-2007 12:26 AM

if you are in college or have any friends at all you have a facebook.

end of story.

it is not really used to find random people to talk to in college, that defines creeper, but if you meet someone ata party its just as easy to give names and find each other the next day on facebook as oppose to calling them, its just kinda a step below...

though i will def be setting mine to private / deleting all my bad pics before i graduate.
