This is a post about 12 signs that you are about to delete your Facebook account. This might be because of the recent news with Cambridge Analytica and how they used our data for political campaigns, or it could just be because you’re done with social media altogether. Either way, we want to make sure that before deleting your Facebook account, you take some time to consider whether that’s what you really want to do! We’ll go through each sign one by one and discuss what this means for not only yourself but also those around you who would miss out on all of the fun memories if they never got a chance to see them again!
Sign #12: You’re tired of seeing ads for products you don’t want to buy or companies you won’t ever use.
This one seems like a no-brainer, but it can be really frustrating when something that was once enjoyable becomes more and more inconvenient the longer we spend on it. It’s not just about the advertisements themselves either – with increased usage comes an increase in all other sorts of crap that clogs up our feeds from friends! Some people might find this sign less valid than others, since Facebook is free after all (or at least mostly). But if someone has been put off by how much advertising they’ve seen recently, then deleting their account may be a good idea so they don’t have to worry about
So… I have been getting a lot of messages and emails recently about people who are thinking about deleting their Facebook accounts. It seems like more than ever before, it’s becoming really popular for folks to “take the plunge” as we say (which is an expression that has nothing to do with water or anything).
There are lots of reasons why you might be considering taking this step: you’re tired of seeing obnoxious posts from exes; you worry how social media influences your brain chemistry and self-esteem; maybe there’s something someone said on either side in recent political debates that got under your skin — whatever it is, frankly, it doesn’t matter. The point is that if enough users leave Facebook, then they will stop charging for it (because Facebook makes money by selling your data).
At the end of the day, there are some good things about social media — after all, lots of people use it to stay in touch with long-distance friends and relatives. But if you’re considering deleting your account because you don’t want them to profit off of you anymore then we respect that decision too. It’s certainly worth thinking through before hitting delete though! That way when they start asking what happened behind closed doors, well now I can say “I’m sorry but I deleted my account.”
We hope this post helps clarify why more and more folks are taking the plunge lately. If not feel free to reach out privately on our contact page or via email at [email protected]

This is what I would say if my friend were considering quitting Facebook. Doing so means going off the grid in terms of social media for a while, which can be tough on some people! You’ll need to invest time and energy into making new friends (and finding your old ones) offline again, without any guarantees that you’ll find them as easily or get along with them as well. But don’t take our word for it — check out these 12 signs you’re about to delete your account before doing anything rash ;)
Signs You Might Want To Quit Facebook And Delete Your Account: #12 People have become too addicted. What started out as an innocent way to keep up with friends and family turned into an addiction to “likes” when it didn’t even matter.
#11 It’s not fun anymore. Remember the days when you used to scroll through all of your pictures, laugh at old memories, write on people’s walls, neglecting everything else? That was a time before constant distraction from external stimuli like TV and video games made us less social in real life.
Right now I’ll admit that scrolling through my newsfeed is just boring because there are no surprises anymore – but this could be due to some combination of what I’m following + how much attention I put into posting myself
