why would someone suddenly"deactivate"their facebook account
 
i know it sounds like a dumb question and it is...lol..but it's just confusing how they have so many close friends they keep in touch with and they just wanna disappear..

I'm sure if they're that close to their friends then they have other means of contact.

Deactivating your FB just hides it from everyone except Facebook. It's essentially the most extreme privacy setting. Getting it back is a snap.

I guess one reason people do it is to get rid of a distraction. Some people ask for bans here for that reason.

Becasue they don't want or need it? It's like asking why someone would sell something, or buy something new

What was stopping you, as her 'close friend', from ringing her up or popping around to her house to see how she was?

She probably did it because you're a creep.

cptcomet 11-08-2012 05:53 AM

She'll probably be back. Some people just don't like facebook. I myself get sick off half the people on there. Just call her.

basically because she lives in australia...lol...i AM a friend of hers though.just concerned

If you're that close, why don't you just text or call her.

EDIT: If she's overseas, contact her via MSN or Skype? I'm sure if she's close to you, you would've got those 2 contact details by now.

this


if anyone wants to find me all those channels of communication still exist :shrug:

I don't know, it gets kind of annoying to know all your shit is on the internet.


Plus, when you grow up into seriousland, it's a smart move to get off that shit knowing they're gonna check you out. Regardless of how tight your profile security is. You wanna work for the government here? Tightening your security ain't gonna do shit, if they want in, then they get in. Even if you delete everything, there's still a chance stuff might be left on there, especially if you're a mass poster and are constantly doing shit on facebook.

purplexing 11-08-2012 09:27 AM

dude people don't do that when they're upset, they do it when they have things to do.

PaulyVengeance 11-08-2012 09:37 AM

Because Facebook is awful?

chatterbox272 11-08-2012 09:43 AM

You think deactivating facebook is weird? I have a friend who's plans for after school (which we finish in about a month) are to move overseas, change name, and lose contact with everyone she knows.

Trowzaa 11-08-2012 09:45 AM

"Deleting my facebook. bye. don't wanna talk about it"

2 days later they're back.

K'Nuckles 11-08-2012 10:31 AM

I'm tempted to now. My girlfriend of three and a half years just broke up with me, and I'm getting really sick of people asking about it. I also don't want to see what she's up to, so...

inb4 cry moar faggot

FireFromTheVoid 11-08-2012 10:36 AM

The only reason I even still have one is spotify.

Just use some other way of contacting her, if your her close friend, but don`t even have a phone number or anything, you sound more like a stalker.
