A modest proposal

In exchange for freedom from prosecution or massive regulation due to their bungled (at best) handling of user data, I would like to suggest that facebook agree to do the following:

  1. Supply one to five simple buttons to allow users to delete posts, photos, likes, comments, messages, and activity from the beginning of their account through April 15, 2018.
  2. Agree that deleted content will not be retained on any facebook or outside backup server once deleted.
  3. Agree to outside monitoring and review of the writing and testing of the deletion code and random inspection of all servers to verify said deletion.

Seems reasonable to me.
