So finally, after being on Facebook for, well as long as Facebook existed, I decided to deactivate my account today. I still remember the time when you actually needed an .edu or otherwise academic e-mail address to register, that must have been in April or May 2004 when I was still at
Jacobs International University Bremen.
So after about 10 years, I think it’s been a great time but since I haven’t looked at anything there since last year and also did not miss it too much, I decided to get rid of the dormant account.
In addition I realized that anybody who wants to contact me can find me via any search engine. And as far as my professional life is concerned, linkedin, xing and twitter seem to be more useful.
