Abstract:

After the first attempt to remove content from Facebook with a script, in other words, "programmatically":

- (Hands-on Haskell) Delete your Facebook account or just remove content: https://www.meetup.com/MoedegruppeFunktionelleKoebenhavnere/events/rqbcdlyxgbgc/

It showed that it's very easy to retrieve data with the Facebook Graph API, but it's not possible to delete:

- https://developers.facebook.com/docs/graph-api/reference/v2.12/user/likes#Deleting
- https://developers.facebook.com/docs/graph-api/reference/v2.12/user/feed#delete
- https://developers.facebook.com/docs/graph-api/reference/user/albums#Deleting
- https://developers.facebook.com/docs/graph-api/reference/user/photos#Deleting
- https://developers.facebook.com/docs/graph-api/reference/user/tagged_places#Deleting

and the few interfaces that allow deleting, requires the content to be created with the Facebook Graph API app (no private person does this).

Well, I don't give up that easy so in this next Meetup I will give a talk on how you can delete content from Facebook "programmatically" and I will showcase the script that cleansed my Facebook Profile !!!

Note: After the talk, the script, will be released under an Open Source License for others to use, if they want to cleanse their profile as well :)
