I recently reignited mine. I don't really post. I just lurk.

I have a Facebook account but almost never post on it. I only got it when a friend of mine started a band and he wanted Facebook likes on it. I use to just go on to say happy birthday to friends and family but as of late I don't even do that much. I even deleted the app off my phone.
So I guess you could say I have deleted it for now.

Once prosecuted a guy who insisted up and down that he never used drugs, never ever ever. His Facebook profile picture was him doing crack...

Not to be a pedant... but since you're a lawyer... his Facebook profile showed him smoking an unknown substance out of a glass pipe.... am I right? Could have been crystal? If we stretch things, it could have been a legal high bought from a smoke shop? Reasonable doubt sir!

He captioned it "some good rock here." Technically, yes, without a lab test we obviously couldn't prove it was crack. BUT that's not the issue here. It would be usable as impeachment evidence. If he testifies "I never do drugs" then that opens up the ability to use a lot of evidence to call that statement's credibility into question.
