Want to quit Facebook but they won’t let you go?

John Moe May 10, 2010

We’re working on a show for tomorrow about Facebook and how quitting the social media site doesn’t necessarily mean you’ve left. I’ve heard from many people, including a colleague this morning, that while Facebook does give you a path to deactivate your account, it’s darn near impossible to actually delete your account. Have any of you tried to leave Facebook? What happened?

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.

Our mission at Marketplace is to raise the economic intelligence of the country. It’s a tough task, but it’s never been more important.

In the past year, we’ve seen record unemployment, stimulus bills, and reddit users influencing the stock market. Marketplace helps you understand it all, will fact-based, approachable, and unbiased reporting.
