How to Delete Accounts from Any Website

“I’m sorry.. sob..it was not meant to be. We seem to have grown apart over the last few months. It’s not you, it’s me – I’ve moved on. I hope we can still be friends, but perhaps not. It’s good-bye I’m afraid and I hope that you can forget all about me and find someone else….”

If only ending relationships with social and networking sites were that easy.  PC Magazine’s How to Delete Accounts from Any Website takes you through the steps you need to take to delete your stuff from 23 services. You may have thought it was hard enough trying to stop Facebook being your friend but, as many of us have discovered, Google Blogger is in a class of its own:

“This Google-owned blogging service has accounts that can’t be closed. What Blogger does offer are steps to “create the same effect.” First, delete all blogs associated with the account, and remove any personal info from your user profile. Blogger even suggests you enter false information in the required fields to get around them. That’s all you can do.”

Thanks to Phil Bradley for the heads up on this one.
