DeletingYourAccount

Ever want to delete a rusty online account but don't want to navigate a maze of unfamiliar preferences to do so? If you're drowning in social networking, blogging, and other sites, web site Delete Your Account shows you how to extricate yourself painlessly.

Signing up for "just one more" social networking site always seems like a good idea at the time, but pretty soon it becomes yet another thing sapping our energy and attention. Delete Your Account helps you dig yourself out from under the time suck and get your life back.

When you're ready to cut the cord from sites like Digg, MySpace, FriendFeed, Hotmail, or a menagerie of other sites, just jump over to Delete Your Account and look for it in the alphabetical list. You'll get a quick link that takes you right where you need to go on individual sites to nuke your account. You'll even get a couple of handy pointers for each site to make sure you get it right.

Delete Your Account is a huge time-saver when you want to un-register yourself from one or several web sites but don't want to waste time poking around each one to figure out where to delist yourself. If you get wistful and start missing sites where you were connected, hit up Delete Your Account for how to resurrect your registration (if it's possible—because sometimes it won't be).

Delete Your Account is a database of all the major social media and networking sites, with instructions for the following sites:
  • Amazon
