Delete fb Account Permanently

I believe you are tired of Facebook and you are confused on the decision to take whether to remove your account temporarily or permanently. There is a clear difference between the deleting and deactivating a Facebook account.

As you may already know, there are so many ways one can close a Facebook account without having to wait for a particular duration. Usually, Facebook takes 90 days (about 3 months) to completely erase off all data concerning your account.

This duration is to give you time in case you have a change of heart to continue Facebook. Within this 90 days, if you truly want to delete your account - - DO NOT login to your Facebook account else your deletion will be nullified and your account reactivated. Same goes to account deactivation.

Deleting a Facebook account temporarily means that you are DEACTIVATING YOUR FACEBOOK ACCOUNT and closing it permanently means DELETING YOUR FACEBOOK. Below are the differences that exist between them.

If you choose to deactivate your account:
  • You can reactivate whenever you want.
  • People can't see your Timeline or search for you.
  • Some info may remain visible (example: messages you sent).

If you choose to delete your FB account:
  • You can't regain access once it's deleted.
  • Deletion may be delayed a few days after it's requested. A deletion request is cancelled if you log back into your Facebook account during this time.
  • It may take up to 90 days to delete data stored in backup systems. Your info isn't accessible on Facebook during this time.
  • Some things aren't stored in your account. For example, a friend may have messages from you after deletion.
  • Copies of some material (example: log records) may remain in Facebook's database but are disassociated from personal identifiers.
So, if you choose to close your Facebook account temporarily or Deactivate your account, here's how to go about it.
