Anyone ditching Facebook over Timeline?

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
Really not a fan of this. I don't want to go back to freaking 2005 and edit stupid college posts that I made. Considering de-activating and going to Google+, or just hangin' out on Twitter.

I'm not sure though.

And I'm not sure why you don't expect Google+ to do something similar in the future. Just don't poast shit on the Internet that you wouldn't want your boss or your mother-in-law to see. And if you have poasted rashly in the past you will do it again - you and your Facebook account are like a recovering alcoholic with a bottle of gin stashed in the basement.

Are deleted posts, pictures, etc from the way-back machine visible again? Or are the skeletons in my closet safely secured?

I'm hanging around for the time being, but it has been the first update that's made me seriously consider leaving.

Donkey paws.

eh, I don't think I've posted anything cringe-worthy on FB but I guess I'll know shortly.

Switched early to timeline like a month ago. After I did so, I considered deactivating but I knew (as I always do), I'd get used to it. It's pretty crappy looking on pc/laptop screen but I think it works for smartphones (at least my Iphone). I think I check my profile less these days though.

I'm going to give deactivating a shot. Prepping myself for the withdrawal.

I recall reading that you can switch back to the old look. I never liked Timeline, which is why I never switched to it.

Timeline becomes mandatory for all users in a matter of days.

They've been saying that for a while...

I don't mind it. Don't really care. I deactivated facebook for a few weeks over Christmas and didn't mind not having it.

I was creeped out by how easy it is to go back to the beginning so I deleted my account (requires you to go through some menus to delete and then not attempt to login for like 2 weeks) and then made another account. I had been meaning to cull my friend list anyway and this way I get a new friend list and fresh start without the ugliness of high school posts haunting me.
