Canceling an Account
If you want to terminate your MySpace account, here's how:
- Log into MySpace, and click the Account Settings link on your MySpace home page.
- On your Account Settings page, click the Cancel Account link in red at the top of the page (see Figure 3.14).
On the Cancel MySpace Account page, click the Cancel My Account button (Figure 3.26).
Figure 3.26 Click the red "Cancel My Account" button in the Confirm Cancel Account box.
A confirmation email message will be sent to the email account you used to create your MySpace account (Figure 3.27).
Figure 3.27 The address you used to sign up on MySpace is the one MySpace will send your cancellation instructions to. If the address that was used wasn't real, see the sidebar "Canceling Your Child's Account" in Chapter 6.
- Locate the email message that was sent to you, and follow the instructions in that email to delete your account.
We've covered the basics of setting up and managing a profile, which is all you really need to get started. But turn the page. In Chapter 4, we cover the all-important topic of how people are using MySpace to manage their social lives, with plenty more "hands-on" tips on how kids and adults can use this service.
