Have you ever considered deleting your Facebook account? Perhaps you don’t want to be worried about the privacy risk you and your spouse are raising when you write. Perhaps you’d like to recover sometime in your life and spend less time online.
Whatever your reason for leaving Facebook, you should be aware that deactivating your account is a simple operation. There are two forms of quitting: reversible (in case you change your mind) and irreversible (for those who are adamant they want out).
Deleting your Facebook account is only a realistic choice for those who are convinced they will never return to Facebook and don’t mind the possibility of having to start again if they change their minds.
When you uninstall your Facebook account, it’s gone for good. The deletion process takes about a month, according to Facebook, but “some details can remain in backup copies and logs for up to 90 days.”
To deactivate or delete your account, go to https://www.facebook.com/deactivate delete account and press “Delete Account.”
