Lately I’ve been noticing a lot of articles in magazines and newspapers written by people who are also leaving Facebook. More often than not, they’ll include a status message they once wrote which they now consider to be particularly wince-worthy, and part of the reason they had to get out. I particularly enjoyed Steve Tuttle from Newsweek’s example: “Steve is in a Honey Smacks mood this morning.”
Do you have a status message you similarly can’t believe you actually wrote? Or have you ever read one by someone else that you just couldn’t get over?

When it was all still new and exciting and I had just installed the mobile app, I was a little overzealous with my status updates … I once posted that I had forgotten to wear deodorant that day. I mean, it was true but did I really need to tell 200 of my not-so-closest friends? [shakes head in shame]

Yeah, I saw this stupid statuses of this one couple who actually said that they could not wait to see each other after the long trip or whatever.. It’s so bizarre to put some images in your head about too much personal details about others. And other stupid Anita or stupid astrologer’s message that is published on every body’s wall.
I am glad I terminated my account. It’s so weird to feel and realize the real friends you know act so differently on facebook and tell the whole world about your personal important moment or privacy thing.
