I reduced attack surface about five years ago. Before abandoning accounts I scrambled their data on me. Changed every field they would allow me to, changed my email to a throw away alias, deleted (if allowed) and never went back. Data rarely gets "deleted", it gets archived. Now they have archived trash. Social media... your never going to delete any of that.

Something I tell everyone I'll put here if I never mentioned it: You know those hint questions for getting back into your account? Don't put the real answers, anyone can see your mother's maiden name on genealogy.com or whatever and a trip to your face-book might tell them how many sisters you have. From now on your father's name is Big Red and you have 256 brothers. Put it in a separate password Db.
