I've deleted my Facebook account. I've never really immersed myself in the thing at any depth, finding it rather insipid and too Geocities-like overall, though I have been re-acquainted with some friends from high school and from my activist Atlanta days and maintained a tenuous connection with some of my students through it. Still, the panoptics and hacks and marketing penumbra made it all far more trouble than it's worth from my point of view. I don't expect to miss it.
