How To: Delete Your Facebook Account


Clearly from this blog you can probably surmise that I enjoy Facebook quite a bit. I accept the fact that privacy concerns are valid and Facebook simply isn’t for everyone – as evident by the May 31st Quit Facebook Day that thousands are now supporting.

So, for those who are considering leaving Facebook, I thought it would be helpful to simply have someone point you in the right direction to delete your Facebook account.

You can do this fairly easily. There is a specific link and form to fill out on Facebook that allows you to close off the account. You can find it at All you need to do is to confirm with Facebook that you wish to deactivate the account. It can then take up to two weeks for the process to occur.

Note*** If you log into your account during that two week period, it will stop the deletion process.
