If you deactivate your account from the "Deactivate Account" section on theAccount page, your profile and all information associated with it are immediately made inaccessible to other Facebook users. What this means is that you effectively disappear from the Facebook service. However, if you want to reactivate at some point, we do save your profile information (friends, photos, interests, etc.), and your account will look just the way it did when you deactivated if you decide to reactivate it. Many users deactivate their accounts for temporary reasons and expect their information to be there when they return to the service.

If you do not think you will use Facebook again and would like your account deleted, please keep in mind that you will not be able to reactivate your account or retrieve any of the content or information you have added. If you would like your account permanently deleted with no option for recovery, log in to your account and then submit your request by clicking here.

If you are currently unable to access your account, you will need to reset your password in order to log in. In order to do so, click the "Forgot your password?" link that appears above the field where you would normally enter your password. Once you’ve followed the instructions to reset your password and can log in, you can deactivate or delete your account using the steps outlined above.

Quit facebook acct


Permanently Close Your Facebook Account
While Facebook can make you accessible to friends and family, it may also make you fear for your privacy online.
Giving out your personal information on a site like Facebook can make you a target for identity thieves.
While you can certainly toggle your privacy settings to adjust how you share your info, you can also deactivate and delete your account so your information is no longer available.
The process can be cumbersome, but it will help you cancel your Facebook account completely.

Sign into your Facebook account normally, then click "Account" and choose "Account Settings" from the drop down menu.
Scroll to the bottom of the Account Settings page and choose "Deactivate," which is the last option available.
This will bring you to a new screen where you may send messages to your friends to let them know you're leaving Facebook.
Click the circle beside the reason you're deactivating your account, which is required.
You can choose from reasons like a temporary leave, having privacy concerns or receiving too much communication with Facebook.
You may also type added notes in the provided field.
You can also decide whether you'd still like emails from Facebook in the future.
When you're ready, click "Confirm."
Sign into Facebook and navigate to the "Delete My Account" page (See Below) if you want to remove your account and information completely from Facebook's files.
https://www.facebook.com/help/contact.php?show_form=delete_account
While deactivated, you'll still be able to sign into your account for administrative purposes and reactivate your account.
A deactivated account will retain all information, photos and notes, but remove them from sight of other users.
Deleting your account will remove your account and information completely from the site.
Send a message via the "Delete My Account" page to let Customer Service you'd like your account removed completely.
Deactivate Your Facebook Account
There may come a time when you need to deactivate your Facebook account.
Fortunately, as with most of the social utility Web sites, closing your account with Facebook is easy.
And if you change you mind, you can always return to Facebook with a simple reactivation process.

Access the Facebook home page and log in using the email address and password you originally registered with (see Resources below).
If you've forgotten you password, click on "Log in" and follow the link to reset your password.
Head to the "My Account" page using the link from the menu.
Follow the "Click Here" link under the Deactivate Account section.
You will be taken to a short form to fill out before you close your account.
Tell Facebook why you're leaving.
Select the radio button next to the reason for deactivating your account.
There is also space to write other comments.
Opt in or out of Facebook emails.
Even if you account is deactivated, your friends can still invite you to events or ask you to join groups.
If you don't want any email from Facebook at all, check the appropriate box.
Click the "Deactivate" button. You will be taken to a page confirming your account deactivation.
Reactivate a Deleted Facebook Account
Head to the Facebook Web site to reactivate your account.
Log in to Facebook as if you'd never left. Use your original email address and password.
Check your registered email account for a confirmation email from Facebook with directions on how to reactivate your account.
Follow the link in the email.
You will be taken to your home page, which will appear exactly how you left it.
All your settings and events are intact upon reactivation.
All you have to do is start exploring again.

Ive been trying to delete my facebook account and im really having a hard time with it pleaseeee help me to take care of this


There's not really anyway to completely delete your facebook account immediately, but you can deactivate it which will remove all references to you from facebook, and I think after 90 days of being deactivated, it will delete your account.

To deactivate your account, go to your Account Settings from the account dropdown menu in the top right corner. At the bottom of the Account Settings page, you should see the link to deactivate your account.
