    It's a simple setting change to never hear from them again. Obviously you didn't even delete your account properly http://www.wikihow.com/Permanently-D...cebook-Account

    After my father died - and we didn't post to RFC while we waited for his
    body to be removed - we did easily remove his Facebook account. No
    further notifications - simple stuff.

    I remember being able to discreetly pick up the phone and listen in on other
    people's conversations... Can't do that with a celly.

    Well, I sure have not been inclined to join FB, and twitter also
    is unappealing. FB MIGHT be a tad more appealing if I didn't
    value my privacy, but I do. If that makes me an old fogy, so be
    it. I am happy to say that my daughter also thinks about privacy
    issues. In fact she recently won a large amount of money, and the
    folks wanted to take her pic with one of those huge checks. She
    is negotiating with them about doing it in her anime costume, with
    a mask.

    I got a fortune cookie recently that said "you will inherit a large sum of
    money"
    Unfortunately, it didn't say when.
