I Am Now FB Legal Now as I Deleted my No-No 2nd Personal Account

I was printing new business cards the other day when I noticed that my old cards pointed to an FB account that I forgot I had. My original plan was to merge my two accounts into one, but this turned out more difficult than practical.

I ordered a complete backup from FB of my old account. This took Facebook, a couple of days to compile and download to me. It consisted of a giant zip file of about 300 MB, which was unzipped into 270 folders. It contained information back to 2017.

It was going to take a lot of work and the merged account would be of dubious value, so I decided just to delete the old account, and keep my current account. I saved that massive zip file to my Dropbox account, just in case. If I ever log back into that old account, it will reactivate itself as FB does not delete any files when you cancel an account, they just make it invisible to the public. That is a scary thought.

Well, my wife will be home around 6 pm, so I have about 7 hours to clean up the house before she gets home. It will be a futile attempt because her idea of clean and mine are miles apart, but I will give it the old college try by doing the dishes, the laundry, and vacuuming the floor. Wish me luck. She has been in the San Francisco area visiting with our son since the middle of last month.
