    I have just got rid of loads of my facebook freinds, leaving only my best mates and family, this is because im applying to university in september and i know they search you on the internet, im not going to delete it compleatly though as no trace looks suspiciouse and i dont want to appere out of touch to prospective universities. I didnt have anything bad on my profile, but i didn't really know most of my old Facebook freinds they just went to my school, and they could of posted anything on my wall, and some off them i didnt really want to be associated with.

    Don't know what to do about twitter though
    Why do you think universities search you on facebook?

    I deactivated in my second year of college so that I could revise and never went back to it.

    There is no use of deactivating Facebook account as you can reactivate it just by logging in.

    I did and I didn't have one for a long time but when I started university I made another... Facebook might be boring/annoying but it's useful.

    I haven't deleted mine. I don't talk to people that much on it (I'm more of a texter) although I do find it very useful for organising events

    I was going to, but then I heard that this Polish girl who always posts loads of pictures of herself is going on holiday to Italy in the summer.
    Not sure whether it deserves a high five or a slap on the wrist...

    I have never had Facebook and have never wanted it! I am starting to see why I might want it because I am about to leave sixth form so might want to stay in touch with people from school. The thing is, I just don't really see why I need it- if I want to contact friends I text, email, Skype or ring them. There have been times when I've missed out on something, but only until the next day at school or until a friend texts me about it! Just because it's not quite so instant doesn't mean it is a problem.

    I don't see why everyone should have to do the same thing, it should just be up to you.

    I deactivated it from the ages of 16-18 but when I went to Uni I activated it again. Tbh I missed out on a lot, lost contact with a LOT of people, and when I activated it again I was shocked at how many people had had babies since school!!!
    I have it just to 'have it' because then at least I can contact someone if I need to, and it's good for keeping in touch with societies and stuff.
    I actually try not to have many photos of myself on there either, as I said I don't really use it for that.
