Anonymous asked: Odd problem. I've never done illegal drugs...but I pretended I did (on Facebook) because I was trying to fit in. Pathetic, I know. I deleted the account because it had jokes about being high and such but I'm terrified a future employer could still find it...I know it was stupid & wrong to lie but I really haven't done anything illegal, but now I can't prove it if someone finds that page somehow.
Yeah, I mean, you can’t permanently delete anything from the internet, but delete what you can and then leave it alone. As time goes by, it’ll get buried. If employers are searching out your facebook (and I still find that totally weird considering I had to make my boss a facebook because she had no idea how to and we’re FB friends) they probably won’t even think a 5 year old account is you. And even if so, they probably won’t care what you “did” in high school when you’re in college or have graduated from college. Also, it’s hard to resurrect dead pages. Even if they find a link, it’ll come up as a deleted account. If someone is working that hard to search your history, you probably don’t want to work for them anyway.
