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.

SOURCE: Unable to Delete Facebook 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.

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.

If you've forgotten you password, click on "Log in" and follow the link to reset your password.

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.

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.
