Mikalah uses Facebook but when she goes to log out, she deactivates her Facebook account. She knows that this doesnâ€™t delete the account â€“ thatâ€™s the point. She knows that when she logs back in, sheâ€™ll be able to reactivate the account and have all of her friend connections back. But when sheâ€™s not logged in, no one can post messages on her wall or send her messages privately or browse her content. But when sheâ€™s logged in, they can do all of that. And she can delete anything that she doesnâ€™t like. Michael Ducker calls this practice â€œsuper-logoffâ€ when he noticed a group of gay male adults doing the exact same thing.
Mikalah is not trying to get rid of her data or piss of her friends. And sheâ€™s not. What sheâ€™s trying to do is minimize risk when sheâ€™s not present to actually address it. (more)
Super-logoff as a sort of car-alarm for your FB page. Leave it alone when I’m not in it. I like that. Although I find it very unlikely that FB will implement that as a feature given they make more money when you DO show up in search. (via April/thisisnotapril)
