Deleted Facebook Pictures Seem To Hang Around For A Long Time [arstechnica.com]
We wrote a piece more than a year ago examining whether photos really disappear from social network servers when you delete them, and found that Facebook was one of the worst offenders when it came to leaving "deleted" photos online. We decided to revisit the issue recently when readers continued to point out that our deleted photos from that article were still online more than 16 months later. Indeed, this old photo of me remains on Facebook's content delivery network servers, despite being deleted on May 21, 2009.
