is Facebook bad?

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We'll kick your ass in

facebook cares about phone numbers because it is actively selling them (or more precisely, the ability to match against them) to advertisers who want to cross reference that data against their CRM lists to determine if you made a purchase after seeing one of their ads.

they just began rolling this out.

Did you have a ton of videos? Mine was only 313 MB and I had thousands of photos.

I think it was till kind of recent that facebook defaulted to hires versions of pictures so you probably got low quality downloads (which were the only ones available)

Can't believe I still have 20 days before they actually delete my account

I think it's for everybody, they log you out and all but if you log back in for the next 30 days they reverse the process and won't delete it till after 30 days of no logins

Ah I see.

30 days will be no problem. The only two times I've logged in, in like six months, was because somebody asked me to so I could look at something they posted.

This has been my main problem. The probable tedium of switching all my logins over to just my email has kept me from doing it entirely, though I did use a chrome extension to delete everything and unfriend everyone, so i can still use messenger with people who haven't cut the cord yet.

this is like the inverse of that thing where Lacan said that you can only pull a rabbit out of a hat on the condition of it being put in there in the first place.

i just logged in to fully delete the facebook i had deactivated forever ago

in order to do so i need to do one of three things:

- identify photos of my friends (this takes you to group photos of people and asks you to ID individuals in the photos, surely innocuous!)

- contact three people I know (of their suggestion, and their suggestions are all people I'm not particularly close with and haven't spoken to in nearly a decade at this point) by some non-facebook means. Those three people will be texted a code. I must collect those three codes and submit them to Facebook.

or

- upload a photo of my ID.
