    Set my account to be deleted two days ago.

    Sick of the lax attitude to privacy. Sick of the data protection failures. Sick of Farcebook algorithms preventing me seeing posts that I do want to see. Etc, etc...

    When this whole social media craze started plenty of people warned that there would be extremely serious repercussions and we where all dismissed as loons.
    People didn't listen back then and happily plastered their real names, photos, current location etc all over the internet.

    Welcome to yet another tiny slice of those repercussions, the events in this article and let me remind you all:
    This isn't even the tip of the iceberg.

    The old adage holds as true now as has for the last few decades: if you don't want your data to be public, don't post it on the public internet in the first place.
