    Apparently you can cancel your facebook account, but your info remains on their servers for many, many months afterwords. In one case, someone canceled their membership and several months later was able to be tracked down through their empty facebook profile.


    A small part of the story:

    Libertarians and Facebook do not mix.

    Sounds like it might take a pedophile getting hold of some "expired" information, for Facebook to take action here. I hope it doesn't come to that, though.

    Facebook is about 1,000 times cooler and much less creepy than MySpace...

    Yeah, I've only received one porn-star friend on facebook to the hundreds on myspace.

    Wow, I'm surprised you let people know your Mom is on facebook.

    Well done. You know, I'd expect that from Preppy or Tomas, but you get major points for that one.

    And while you're at it, tell her to stop stalking me.
