50MB of Facebook trash; trashed

I remember the times when we only had 2MB email inboxes provided when you sign up for a hotmail account. How old school is that. haha. How interesting life will be if we still only had that now. 2MB. 2MB is practically impractical.

I was motivated to clear my gmail inbox today. (Thank you Google for giving us huge online storage space that was the example for the rest of the email providers to follow suit.) Ever since the creation of this Gmail account, I have never, never once, press the ‘delete’ button. I only ‘archive’ my mails. Thankfully, gmail increases the total capacity of your email inboxes by a few kb per second (we all start with 6GB, i think).

Just by deleting all the notifications from Facebook, I saved a grand total of … … … 50MB (4048 – 3998 = 50)! Doesn’t seem like a lot eh? But each text notification email takes only a few kilobits of data, I must have just deleted tens of thousands of FB emails. and 50MB is 25 times bigger than the 2 measly MB given by Microsoft more than 10 years ago.

Amazing. Amazingly random post. 🙂
