Facebook: Can't delete my old comments!

I made a comment in a friend's picture in Facebook. I deactivated and then shortly reactived my account. After reactivation, I could not delete my comments made prior to decactivation. Why would this occur? How can I fix this? It is through the same account. There is no ''x'' option next to the picture comments.

This is because your account does not actually reactivate and it simply creates an account with the same name but a different digital signature. unfortunately you will be unable to edit stuff from your previous profile.

Deactivating & Deleting Accounts

What's the difference between deactivating and deleting my account?
How do I deactivate my account?
You can deactivate your account temporarily and choose to come back whenever you want.
To deactivate your account:
  1. Click the account menu at the top right of any Facebook page
  2. Select Settings
  3. Click Security in the left column
  4. Choose Deactivate your account then follow the steps to confirm
If you deactivate your account your profile won't be visible to other people on Facebook and people won't be able to search for you, though some information, such as messages you sent to friends, may still be visible to others.
If you'd like to come back to Facebook anytime after you've deactivated your account, you canreactivate your account by logging in with your email and password. Your profile will be restored in its entirety (ex: friends, photos and interests). Remember that you will need to have access to the login email address for your account in order to reactivate it.
If you can't get into your account, you can reset your password.
To permanently delete your account:
Permanently deleting your account means you will not ever be able to reactivate or retrieve any of the content or information you've added. If you would like to permanently delete your account with no option for recovery, please contact us.

Delete facebook permanently


Hi there!
There are two options for getting rid of your Facebook, Deactivating and permanently deleting.

Deactivating will hide your profile but some posts may still be visible and your account can be reactivated at any time. Deleting will remove your facebook information permanently and can not at any time be reactivated.

To Permanently delete your account instead of deactivating you will want to log into your account and go to this link:

Facebook

Then follow the directions to permanently delete your account.

Have a fantastic day!

My facebook account was disabled..how can i solved this problem?.


Hi john

"Disabled" is an ambiguous term.

Here's what you need to know.

Two Options are available for users who wish, for whatever reason, to stop using their Facebook account. From your question, I would expect you to choose the 2nd option but I will give you both options so you have all the necessary information in your possession to make a fully informed decision that best suits your circumstances.

The first option is Deactivation which, from 24 hours after deactivation, makes your account invisible but the account can be reactivated, restoring exactly the same settings, associations, links and other content at any point after 24 hours from deactivation.

The second option is Permanent Deletion which, as long as you do not attempt to access the account within 14 days of deletion, completely removes your account and all its settings, associations, links and other content. The only way to for a user to participate fully in the Facebook community, beyond 14 days after having deactivated an account, would be to open a brand new account with new settings, associations, links and other content.

Deactivation

Account > Security > Deactivate your account > select reason for deactivation > confirm > password > confirm > after 24 hours, if required, account can be reactivated by following the same procedure (Reactivate your account).

Permanent Deletion

Facebook Help Center > (click on link) https://ssl.facebook.com/help/contact.php?show_form=delete_account> type "delete my account" in the Search Box > Submit > password > copy and enter 'Captcha' security code > OK > confirm? > OK > do not access the Facebook account again within 14 days.

I hope this answer is clear and that it helps.

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.

Dont want to be on facebook anymore thanks


You can do 3 things with your Facebook account. Deactivate it, delete it and all content and/or ensure that it is permanently removed from the Facebook servers for good. This article will show you how to do all of this. 1. Deactivate Your Facebook Account

This takes the shortest amount of time but does not actually delete your account. It deactivates it and hangs around until you have a sudden drop in will power and login again. It then reactivates your account with all your information, photos, messages and comments intact. If you want to be a ****** and follow this route, here are the steps you need to follow:
a. Login to your Facebook account and then click on account on the top right hand corner of the page.
b. When the new page appears, leave it on the Settings tab and scroll to the bottom. Click on the deactivate link.
c. You will be asked to confirm the deactivation and asked to give a reason why. Choose whatever you feel like and hit the Deactivate button

2. Delete Your Facebook Account
a. Make sure you have the email address of all your friends if you want to continue email contact with them. You need to stop using the Facebook messages. Ensure they have your email address too.
b. Delete ALL sent and received messages.
c. Remove ALL of your friends from your friends list.
d. Delete ALL comments/posts on all of your walls (SuperWall, FunWall, The Wall, etc).
e. Delete ALL Comments and Posts you’ve made on other peoples Walls.
f. Delete ALL your photos - this includes all profile photos and those in your albums.
g. Leave ALL your networks and groups.
h. If you administer any groups, transfer the admin rights to someone else.
i. Clear every last bit of information from your profile.
j. Deactivate your account as per the above.
3. Permanently Delete ALL account information from Facebook Servers
You can request Facebook to have your information completely wiped from their servers.
They stress that you need to remove all profile content before theye can do this. Follow steps a. to i. above but do not deactivate yet. Facebook may come back to you saying there is still content for you to delete. If there is and you have already deactivated, you will need to go through the reactivation process to follow their demands.
Once you have cleared your account, let them know and they’ll take care of the rest. To let them know follow these steps:
a. Login to your account, scroll to the very bottom of the page and click on the Help link.
b. On the page that shows up, Click on Privacy and Security.
c. Then click on Privacy
d. A list of questions will appear. Scroll all the way to the bottom. The 2nd last entry will be ‘I want to permanently delete my account’. Click on it.
e. A bunch of words worth nothing to you will come up. Towards the end of the 2nd paragraph, click on the link ‘this form’.
f. You will be presented with the below. Tick the box Remove my account from Facebook and click on the Submit button.
g. You will then get an email letting you know that the Facebook team will get back to you. They should get back to you within a week. Once they confirm that your account is deleted, try logging in to Facebook again. You will know that it is permanently deleted if you don’t get asked to reactivate your account.
