I am sooooo happy. Glad that this movement is gaining momentum.
Faith in Humanity restored.67
Stop doing this if you’re in Europe.
GDPR is coming, if you delete your account now they will preserve it.
If you wait until may 25 they will be forced by the law to actually delete it.
Read the 17th article of GDPR if you don’t believe me.14
Facebook's April fools really was spot on this year with #DeleteFacebook, so many people fell for i-... Oh wait.. 😂1
Never ever have I been so happy in my life.
Deleted an account which has been deactivated (because I was not aware that there was a delete option) for four plus years.
Thank you @bittersweet for the help.
Fuck Facebook. Fuck Zuckerberg. Fuck them with a hot rod in their fucking ass.
Privacy is one of the reason, but I hate how this company demeaned the word morality and what all goes on between people.
Facebook has caused more psychological damage to this world than any other thing.
I just hope and wish Facebook dies out completely.
Let's all add fuel to fire and support the growth of the movement.

So I've been reading a lot about this #deletefacebook trend across devrant lately. And frankly I'm a little concerned.
As per my understanding, everyone wants to delete Facebook because they're harvesting data. Learning more about us.
While I would agree that I want my privacy. I am a little surprised at how fast this trend is picking up. People are turning a blind eye on everything else they do online just to assume they have privacy.
Let's put this Into perspective, shall we?
You are afraid of letting Facebook harvest your data yet you watch videos on YouTube which is owned by Google. You may even proceed to removing your Google account and use a stripped down version of Chromium to protect yourself from these companies yet you're using a Windows, Mac, iPhone, or Android all of which may be harvesting your data behind the scenes. Some may argue that they have stripped down their android phones but don't take into consideration that you are still using apps on your phone that may be collecting your data.
Let's say that you manage to get out of every sort of technology, you should remember that companies like Facebook also check data about you through your friends.
You use platforms like DuckduckGo assuming that they might not be collecting data about you in some way. I don't think there is anyway for you to prove that these privacy companies don't collect our data.
I don't know why everyone seems to be interested in this trend. I absolutely don't see a point in it. If anything, things I see are super relevant to me.16
Other services : Please type your phone number to verify that it is you. It will be only used for verification process.
Me : Sure, why not? (Happily types in my number)
Facebook : Please type your phone number to verify that it is you.
Me : Hmmm (sees help)
Facebook : It will be used for verification process and will be visible to your friends. You can always change the scope settings.
Me : (reads as...) It will be used for verification process and will be visible to your friends and will be automatically sent to the NSA for free. You can always change the scope settings when you become the CEO of Facebook.
So, why so many rants about Facebook now?
I already knew that Facebook sells our data for a few years.... Didn't anyone else knew before that stupid #deletefacebook campaign?14
Yea #deletefacebook is fine and all but what about putting fucking Like-Buttons all over the goddamn web. Care about that, would ya?!? You're not any bit better than zuckerfuck if you are doing this on your site!5
I finally bit the bullet and completely deleted my Facebook account! I am a free man! Fucc Facebook.19
In support of the #deleteFacebook movement, I have been assigned a task to completely erase our company presence on Facebook. Our FB page has at least 100k followers, on Instagram we have even more. So right now I am thinking, I won't tell my boss that Instagram is actually controlled by Facebook. The guy doesn't even have a Facebook account so I am confident in my plan.5
I know many shitheads who are concerned about privacy and all show off with #DeleteFacebook trend without knowing the details.
But the same people aren't hesitant to share their information offline with a complete stranger while filling up forms at any event, bank, saloon or mall for follow up spam e-mails, telephone calls and messages.
Sometimes people are the problem and not these corporations.
We are surrounded by stupid fucktards and morons.
Be prepared, alert and aware of the surroundings because future is full of retards.5
Deactivated my Facebook account today. Enough of that shit, enough of excessive data tracking. Also switching to Linux on my home PC soon, already did on my laptop.5
I've just realised, I don't care if Facebook are sharing my data... I mean, what I get more ads for men with big penises and ripped abs? So what...19
Shit like this makes me want to join the #deletefacebook movement. I just want to report it and sue for emotional stress.11

I am getting addicated to #devRant.
And I'm Loving it...
Everyone is aware the Facebook fucks up privacy via Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp combined.
The fact is not new to us and with Cambridge Analytica scam coming to light, the #DeleteFacebook movement started and many actually took action to delete the Facebook account.
But people are still being tracked and their data is used via Instagram and WhatsApp.
Why isn't there an#DeleteInstagram and #DeleteWhatsApp movement yet?4
So with all that #DeleteFacebook thing, I was curious to learn about entire episode.
That's when I decided to Google about Cambridge Analytica and this is what I found.
So I just published my first npm library
Anyway couldn't think of any other people that would know the feelings.
I'd love to get your feedback4
No Facebook for three weeks and haven't felt any need to check.
Honestly, I didn't use it heavily but needed a motivation to leave it. So I take this as God sign to leave it.1
Maybe im wrong but still, damn policies, at my job i need a code review and a commit review before committing code and Im ok with that but hell, I was required to run the api tests when I only modified 2 front end file, i mean seriously i need to run c# tests after modifying angular components. It just seems silly and foolish and a complete waste of time to run the tests for all the projects when i didnt even modified one.
If you work with me and know who I am then stho and accept it. :p
The designers kept changing the layout for a web app every week and refused to use a version control system so they sent the new files by slack every release9
Given the recent #deletefacebook movement and everyone deleting their Facebook accounts for privacy reasons, I must ask. Is LinkedIn any better than facebook? How much do you guys trust them with personal information?10
