A lot has been going on about Jason Calacanis’ Facebook profile these past few days. It started with Calacanis saying that his Facebook account had been reactivated (Facebook takes 14 days to actually delete the account once you request it) and that he was not the one that reactivated it. Now Facebook has come back to say that they only way this could happen is if he explicitly clicked a cancel deletion button.
Whoever is to blame it doesn’t matter. What matters is that Facebook has made it overly hard to delete your account. If a user clicks delete then you need to delete it on the spot (after confirmation) – you nobody needs the 14 days to “think about it”.
