I did something that I had been wanting to do for a while now: I deleted the Facebook app on my tablet. Apparently, the app will listen to you.
You’re reading that correctly. Facebook will fucking listen to you through the app. They are listening to you. Yeah, that’s not creepy at all. So I deleted it. For very obvious reasons.
Before you ask: no, I don’t have the app on my phone. Well, I do but it’s hidden so I can’t access it. I insisted that Prime hide it; I knew in advance that it would be too tempting not to use and cost me too much data. I do have Messenger, which I use to chat with Prime, but that’s about it. Messenger is somewhat useful while Facebook really isn’t anymore.
The sad thing? You can’t really delete a Facebook account. You can deactivate the account, but not delete it. I wonder why that is…
I don’t know if my ban is up, yet. Honestly, I really don’t care.
