Chanson de Roland

Wouldn't it be easier just to not use Facebook. But there is a problem for those of you who have used Facebook: Facebook is like the Hotel California: You can checkout, but you can never leave. Once you've joined Facebook, it will retain and use for its benefit, especially for its profits, any information and knowledge about you that it acquired, while you were a member. Even your death won't release Facebook's legal grip on your information, so even after you checkout, you can't leave Facebook.

So before joining Facebook, look up at the sign over the entrance: Give up all right to privacy and control of the use of your information, ye who enter here.

Of course, the damn scoundrels at Facebook will try to track and acquire you even if you don't join Facebook by tracking you on third-party websites, so that you will be in the Facebook even without checking in.

You can checkout, but you can never leave.
