Services that help social networkers expunge their accounts have come under the scrutiny of Facebook, reports MediaPost. According to the report, last month the company sent a cease-and-desist letter to Les Liens Invisibles, the company behind the Seppukoo.com platform that assists users in committing "Facebook suicide." A Facebook spokesperson said the service causes users to violate Facebook terms of service and breaks anti-hacking and spam laws, among others. The Los Angeles Times reports that Facebook is also blocking the IP address of Web 2.0 Suicide Machine, another deactivation platform, and has filed a lawsuit against social networking data aggregator, Power.com.
