Deactivate your Facebook
Deactivate your Facebook

Fed up? You can deactivate your Facebook account -- but the site doesn't let you go without a fight. Its parting page shows off photos of your friends and tells you how much they'll miss your social-networking presence.

Deactivating your account doesn't actually purge it from Facebook's servers. The company keeps your data stored in case you change your mind and want to come back.
