Ever thought of deleting your Facebook account? Could be you don’t want to worry about the privacy threat it poses or you want to take some time off social media. Whatever your reason for wanting to leave the platform, you should know it’s a relatively easy thing to do.
If you are uncertain about your decision to leave the world’s most popular social network, you might want to consider deactivating it just in case you change your mind. While on deactivation mode, your account will stay on hold, and the timeline will be hidden on the site.
For those that want to delete a Facebook account permanently, go to https://m.facebook.com/
Since all your Facebook information will be lost forever, it’s recommended that you download a copy of all the data Facebook has on you. To do this, select the down arrow and go to “Settings.” Under your General Account Settings, select “Download a copy of your Facebook data” and “Start My Archive.”
Facebook account deletion requests can be canceled if you log back into the account during the 14-day waiting period. Therefore, you need to log out of anything that’s connected with Facebook, whether it’s an app or service that you’ve connected or logged into through Facebook. It can take up to 90 days for your account to be fully deleted.
To delete a Facebook group, you have to be the group’s creator. If you’re an admin, you can only delete the group if the original creator leaves it. The process begins with the removal of all members, including yourself. In your group, go to “Members,” select “Remove from Group” beside each person, “Leave Group,” and then click “Leave and Delete.”
