Approximately three years ago, I found it necessary to create a Facebook account in order to contact a former band member who sent me an invitation to view his Facebook page. I had not communicated with him in many, many years and was eager to do so. I created a Facebook account, contacted him through his Facebook page, and immediately moved the conversation (and future conversations with him) to private email. At that point, I forgot about my Facebook account. A year or so later, I determined thatwhile I never visited Facebookthe flow of friend, app, and game requests had become a flood. I attempted to delete my account. For about ten months, I attemptedwithout successto delete my Facebook account!) The seemingly insurmountable issue with which I was dealing was that I had created my account with an email address that no longer belonged to me. (Many readers will recall that a year or so ago, I sold my prior domain.) Attempts to delete my account ended unsuccessfully each time I reached that point at which Facebook required me to confirm that I was, in fact, the owner of the account. Since I no longer had access to the email account of record, I was unable to confirm my identity as the owner of the account. Last evening, I was SO determined that I would find a way to delete my Facebook account that I lay in bed with my Motorola Droid X and a determination that I would not sleep until the deed was done. The good news is I did, in fact, accomplish thee removal of my Facebook account! The bad news is I have no idea whatever how I managed this! Perhaps it shall remain forever something not to be understood.
