@kensanata I agree with you about the power dynamics at play in social media, and the value in deleting.
But as a counter-argument consider this thread (birdsite warning), which has a pretty good description of how search can be useful to you in your life.
I'm wary of blanket statements about what should be remembered & forgotten ... they are complicated, and a big part of what make us who we are.
Also, if you haven't run across it yet I think you will enjoy this book: https://press.princeton.edu/titles/9436.html
