How to Quit Facebook Without Actually Quitting Facebook – Facebook – Lifehacker

This is a tutorial on how to create the most minimalist Facebook profile possible, with as little information on yourself as possible, to be used only for communication between you and your friends. You won’t be able to do much on the site; you probably won’t even visit the site that often. This is not for people who want to continue using Facebook; it is for the people who are ready to up and quit tomorrow, but don’t want to miss out on the next party just because they care about their privacy. So if you’re really ready to give up wall posts, comments, Farmville, and fan pages, here’s how to proceed without falling off the face of the Earth.

1) Create a Disposable Email Address for Your Account
2) Create a New Account and Transfer Your Friends
3) Turn Off the Wall on Your Profile
4) Hide Your Email Address
5) Hide Media Tagged With Your Name
6) Hide Yourself from Facebook and Google Searches
7) Lock Down Applications (Just In Case)
