I'm finally fed up with Facebook, and want to get off. I can't find anywhere to do that!

Can anyone help, or am I doomed to have this Albatross round my neck for ever?

Your doomed, your doomed (in a scots accent). I think they have deliberately made it difficult as they love you and your data so much. It can be done try googling it

found this not sure if it still works

Do you mean your Facebook account?

'Help Center > Security

I want to permanently delete my account.

If you deactivate your account from the "Deactivate Account" section on the Account page, your profile and all information associated with it are immediately made inaccessible to other Facebook users. What this means is that you effectively disappear from the Facebook service. However, if you want to reactivate at some point, we do save your profile information (friends, photos, interests, etc.), and your account will look just the way it did when you deactivated if you decide to reactivate it. Many users deactivate their accounts for temporary reasons and expect their information to be there when they return to the service.

If you do not think you will use Facebook again and would like your account deleted, please keep in mind that you will not be able to reactivate your account or retrieve any of the content or information you have added. If you would like your account permanently deleted with no option for recovery, log in to your account and then submit your request by clicking here.'

You can deactivate your account and then don't go to it ever again. That is how I got off it.

As a FB member that link is not accessible or v difficult to "permanently delete", you can however deactivate.

With google, this works, someone has tried it before ...

What is Facebook?

A method for employers to check potential candidates. "two in five employers said they had found content on a social network that dissuaded them from hiring a candidate."

There are permission levels.

But then again, there are bosses who wants to add you as a friend on FB and they even put drinking pictures online :D

Just a reminder. Don't visit for at least 14 days!!!

Some people just can't wait to see if it worked.
