I have been searching on the Internet for the disadvantage of using account Object. I am new to SF. I recently developed a system using custom object. Now, one of the developer asked me, Why i did not use Account object. I thought of using account object but because Account object have too many fields, I didn't use it and created my own object.
The whole internet is against Custom Objects.
Can anyone give me some references or some points on why Account (Standard) object should not be used and custom Object should be preferred?
