"'Leaving Facebook? It was a Kafkaesque nightmare!' says Sean McTiernan, a 20-something Dublin arts journalist, who tried to quit the social network but found that Facebook really didn't want him to leave. ... If the European Union gets its way, people like McTiernan may have an easier time erasing their online selves. The EU wants to give Internet users the right to what the French call le droit a l'oubli -- literally, the right to oblivion." (04/06/11)
