Tip & How-To about Facebook Social Network

I want to delete my Facebook account

Hi.

There are at least two different ways to delete a Facebook account.

The "soft" way:

Go to your Facebook account setting page and set account as deactivated. The account will be suspended and content will not be accessible to other users anymore. This is not still enough for deletion. After deactivation you must not access anymore your account, or the account will not be deleted. A deactivated account will be definitively deleted after two-four weeks with no access. If you change your mind, all you have to do is logging in. The Facebook account will be immediately reactivated.

The "hard" way:

This will submit a request for immediate complete deletion of the account. All the content will be immediately deleted once your request is processed. If you would like your account permanently deleted with no option for recovery, log in to your account and then submit your request here. Of course you need a Facebook account to delete one. The page will ask you to log in with your facebook ID and password.

i have three facebook pages an i want to delet


When you say "pages", I am taking it as you mean "accounts". I am sorry if I misunderstood you. If I have misunderstood your question, feel free to reply to it and I will help you accomplish what you are looking to do.

Log into your account and browse to "Account Settings". All the way at the bottom there will be a setting called "Deactivate Account". Click on it and follow the prompts.

Repeat the process for each account.

how do you delete a facebook page??


Unfortunately the only way to delete a facebook page is to go to Settings/Account Settings/Deactivate account. No matter what you have to wait for two weeks for them to remove it from the system. I have removed mine as well.

Good Luck,

Sign in to the Facebook account you wish to delete, then click "Settings" in the upper right area of your home page, now scroll down all the way to bottom of the page, and you will see the option to deactivate your account(delete it).
