Apparently, three Argentines who worked on a book that mocks Facebook mysteriously had their Facebook accounts deleted in January. On top of that, a Facebook group of fans, who numbered in the tens of thousands, also disappeared. After the deleted profiles finally started getting attention, Facebook admitted it made a "mistake" and put the profiles back. The three individuals had been trying to get an explanation from Facebook for weeks with no luck -- and it was only when the press started picking up on the story that Facebook admitted its "mistake." Either way, it's a reminder that what you do on Facebook can disappear in an instant based on the company's whims.
