Default Resisting Facebook - I Am Not In Facebook Anymore

No longer in Facebook after some stalking / harassment issues.

Anyone have a similar experience and terminate?

Wow! Sorry to hear that.

Can you give any more details on what happened? How is leaving Facebook going to affect your business?

I have never dealt with stalking or harassment but I have deactivated my account for long periods of time before. I was not using it for business at that point, so it was not an issue. Now, I would simply report / block that person and use 'Facebook As A Page' while limiting personal profile visibility and updates.

Hope everything works out,

If you weren't harassing/stalking anyone, then I'd suggest you contact FB and try to clarify it with them.

How does the incident occur? Business harassment over Facebook is always going to be there since you'll have a lot of competitors that will go into social networking sites too.

Stalking and harassment issues can control or limit. You must edit your security settings and limit the persons you don't want to enter in your Facebook page or facebook account. It will badly affect your business just in case. As of now listing in Facebook is a good component.

If you have decided to leave FAcebook, it means that something serious has happened, but you shouldn't take it too close to heart as this is just the Internet relations and the real life is more important.

There is little protection online or anywhere else from stalkers and identity thieves. If you are being stalked at Facebook or any other social networking web site, there is little you can do except to delete your accounts.

Its one of the best rule in FB and it is really a good idea to avoid stalkers and spammers. It teaches a lesson to those who harass harass somebody.
