10 Tips for Finalizing Your Breakup on Facebook!

Whether you think your breakup was a piece of cake, a nightmare or civilized yet utterly painful, you still have more things to worry about: finalizing your break up online!

Twitter, MySpace and LinkedIn are easy to manage, you simply remove your ex from your list and he or she will vanish from your account. However, when it comes to Facebook, you have serious work to do!

Therefore, in efforts to help you finalize your breakup on Facebook, here is a list of 10 things you need to do:

With a service such as this one, we are now entering a new level of fear, haunting and paranoia!
