Breaking up with Facebook is apparently as difficult as breaking up with a bad boyfriend or girlfriend who won’t accept your decision. That’s the experience Henry Grabar of Slate had when he stopped signing on. He stopped logging in on June 6 and stayed off Facebook for ten days. He had been a member for over ten years and this was the longest period he had remained off the social network. But Facebook didn’t leave him alone. He received 17 email messages in a span of nine days urging him to return.
I got suspended off FB a couple months ago and that pissed me off so bad that when my suspension was up, I went in and suspended my account on my own. There’s a button on the confirmation page that allows you to opt out of emails from them. I clicked that and haven’t gotten a single email from them.
