How To Erase Yourself From the Internet
Are you trying to remove yourself completely from all forms of social media? Maybe you're tired of being sent e-mail after e-mail from a retailer you bought from once? A new website has made the task of removing your footprint from certain parts of the internet a lot easier. It's called JustDelete.me.
According to Samantha Murphy-Kelly of Mashable,
Created by U.K.-based developer Robb Lewis, JustDelete.me is a directory of urls that highlights links to pages you may want to remove yourself from, so you don't have to jump through hoops to do so. This includes sites like Facebook, Foursquare, Dropbox and Feedly.
JustDelete.me will let you know before you click anything the difficulty level of which database you are trying to remove yourself from. For example, the website claims that removing yourself completely from the music service, Grooveshark is easy, but Skype is much harder. Some websites like Wikipedia and Starbucks are actually impossible to "delete yourself" from.
