The photo issue almost got me to join Facebook as well, but then they were so kind just to mail the pics and I could happily skip facebook again.

I;m on twitter but I hardly twitter. Will add you to my list though Shabba: Keeps your friends close but keep your enemies closer

I have avoided twitter, I'm too cheap to pay the mobile costs to access it.

Well, you can tweet from your desktop, but that's not really the point of it.

Okay, I've succumbed to the peer pressure and got myself a Facebook account. Feel free to add me, perhaps that'll be an inclination for me to actually do something with it

Can you actually ask them to delete your account? I thought the account remains there forever. You can only quit looking at it or logging in to fb.

From what it says, all my data (which are belong to them) disappears from the scene, and I can restore it before 14 days have passed, after which it is essentially lost. Note : I chose "delete account", not just "disable account". But then, God knows what they do with your data behind the scenes.

I thought that data disappear but the account itself remains dormant and can be seen (essentially empty) or logged in at any time. They obviously want to list as many accounts as they can so that their price for ads is as high as it is. For them, it is a great deal since they have an account but don't need to spend any resources of maintaining it. Not sure it is like that though, may be they honestly erase everything and you can re-register then if need arises. May be even with a same nick.
