Facebook offers a convenient way to deactivate Facebook account. However, deactivation of Facebook does not completely and permanently the Facebook profile and accoucnt.

According to Facebook FAQ, deactivate Facebook account will render user’s profile and all information associated with it immediately inaccessible to other Facebook users. In other words, the account is effectively disappear from the Facebook service. However, the Facebook account is not been purged from Facebook’s servers. Instead, the profile information (friends, photos, interests, etc.) is saved, so that the account can be recovered and reactivated in future with the information intact if the user decides to do so, or regret on the deactivation decision.

Permanently delete the Facebook account will completely remove and purge all personally identifiable information associated with the Facebook account from Facebook database. This includes information like name, email address, mailing address, and IM screen name. However, do note that copies of some material (photos, notes, etc.) may remain in Facebook servers for technical reasons, but this material is disassociated from any personal identifiers and completely inaccessible to other users.

Facebook users who want to get rid of Facebook once and for what, and do not think that he or she will use Facebook again, Facebook provides a way to delete the account. Once Facebook account is deleted, it’s impossible to reactivate the account or retrieve any of the content or information previously associated in the account. There is no option for recovery once Facebook account is deleted.

To delete a Facebook account, log in to the Facebook account, and then submit the “Delete My Account” at https://ssl.facebook.com/help/contact.php?show_form=delete_account.

Delete and Remove Facebook Account

Click on Submit button. Enter the password to confirm it’s your account, and the captcha security spam check. Then click on Okay button. An email will be sent to indicate that the Facebook account will be deleted in 14 days.

Confirm Delete Facebook

During the 14 days account deletion grace period, do not login or sign in to Facebook account, nor perform any action utilizing Facebook, such as Share on Facebook on Like in Facebook, or login and sign up to other websites by using Facebook Connect (Facebook user name and password credentials). Any interaction and usage of the Facebook account during the period will prevent the account from being deleted.

Alternative Method to Delete Facebook Account

If the above official method to delete the Facebook account fails, it’s also possible to email Facebook to request them to delete your Facebook account directly. The email address is:

[email protected]

Within a few days (allows up to a week), an email response should be sent by Facebook to confirm that the account has been permanently deleted.

If there is no response from Facebook, and you can still access your Facebook account or given an option to reactivate the account, try email Facebook again, with the following three email addresses:

[email protected]
[email protected]
[email protected]

The Facebook account is permanently deleted when user cannot login to the account anymore, and there is not message which offers user a chance to reactivate the Facebook account.

    I don’t see why it would take 14 days. It dodn’t take 14 days to activate. I guess because they know that ppl are so addicted that they won’t last 7 says without the need to log on. It’s like crack or meth; gotta have it. A SCARY waste of time…

    Everybody needs to get rid of that crap. Its a big distraction from studies and things like that.

    Nobody likes that everything about them is being being published there, atleast I don't like it. When I was going to sign up for facebook, twitter and myspace my parents warned me but I did'nt listen.

    After deleting my account I am feeling free.

    Like I am out of a stupid jail.

  • pls delete my account

  • Wrensis

    [email protected] simply sends you a letter saying they receive too many messages to reply blah blah. I put all settings to just me

    x'd out all apps, removed photos, removed all of my posts, deleted friends and messages and a friend was still able to see me at Farmville as being whatever in line for the collection of wedding gifts. Facebook is worse than AOL to remove from your computer.

    I believe I have evidence of "bots" creating false name accounts and one person I reported who had multiple name accounts all faceless I think used my name to set up more.

    That is suspician..

    fact is:

    They will show your phone number unless you go into settings under edit friends and remove it.

    They demanded real email account passwords to facilitate sending gifts in another App called Country Life, with Country Life saying they were not a party to the latest invasion of personal data.

    I am out…I WILL STAY OUT and I warn everyone this is not a place for your family or children. Way too much being disclosed about YOU.
