PostSubject: How To Deactivate Your Facebook Account   Tue Jun 14, 2011 2:31 pm

Facebook was dropped by 100,000 people in Britain last month. But breaking up is hard to do, so here's how

Well, this is awkward. The social networking site that allows you to "edit friends" was quietly dropped by 100,000 people in Britain last month, according to Inside Facebook. Facebook dismissed the figures, but just in case the thought has crossed your mind, just how do you log off permanently?

▶ Don't get sucked in. Go to the account menu on the top righthand corner of the page and click on account settings, then deactivate account. But whatever you do, don't look at your news feed. Yes, your friend just got back from working as a child psychologist in Uganda, but I'm sure it was really boring. That YouTube link to the mayor of Oslo singing Simply the Best while promising to buy a polar bear won't be funny. Ask your friends to send you nice invitations through the post instead.

▶ Harden your heart. Facebook will confront you with a set of pictures of your friends laughing winningly. The captions read "Anna will miss you", "Daniel will miss you", "Adrian will miss you". Nice try, Facebook. When you look closer you will see you only met Daniel once at a party and Anna's picture is an old school photograph of you in braces, which a true friend would have burned. The last one is your husband. He will not miss you.

▶ Never explain. Facebook insists you tell them why you are rejecting them. Have they not shown you enough affection? (Option: "I don't find Facebook useful.") Feel smothered? ("I get too many emails, invitations, and requests from Facebook.") Adjust your privacy settings. Best to cut to the chase and tell them you have found Twitter.

▶ Remove temptation. Opt out of receiving future emails and confirm and submit to disable your profile and remove your name and picture from anything you've shared on Facebook. Or take the nuclear option and permanently delete your account. Click on help, then search for "delete my account", follow the link and click on "submit your request here". The account will be deleted immediately, but it can take up to a fortnight for Facebook to clear your information from its cache.

▶ Hold your nerve. Ignore the sudden giddyness and disorientation. Scrabble to log back in.

Facebook has denied that it is losing customers, saying it is "pleased" with growth.

Figures from Faceboook monitoring site Inside Facebook suggested that during May, Facebook lost six million users in the US and 100,000 in the UK.

But the social network, which does not usually comment on third party statistics, questioned how it arrived at this figure.

Other net measurement firms said they had seen growth over the same period.

"From time to time, we see stories about Facebook losing users in some regions. Some of these reports use data extracted from our advertising tool, which provides broad estimates on the reach of Facebook ads and isn't designed to be a source for tracking the overall growth of Facebook," the firm said in a statement.

"We are very pleased with our growth and with the way people are engaged with Facebook. More than 50% of our active users log on to Facebook in any given day," it added.

The figures from Inside Facebook claimed that 1.5 million Canadian users left the social network in May.

But overall it showed that Facebook was growing, to a total of 687 million users worldwide with many new customers coming from countries such as India, the Philippines and Indonesia.

Its figures on customer leakage do not appear to tally with those from net measurement firm comScore.

It told the BBC it had seen a 21% growth for US users on Facebook during May, while the UK gained 368,000 new recruits between February and May.

According to comScore, the average amount of time spent on the site was also up, from 21 minutes per day in December 2009 to 25 minutes per day by December 2010.

Measurement firm Nielsen said its figures also showed growth.

"There are months when figures dip but I'd be very cautious on calling a trend based on two months," said Nielsen spokesman Neil Beston.

The idea of Facebook fatigue, where users desert the social network after a certain period of time has long been talked about by experts but remains unproven.
