How to delete Facebook

It may be time to leave the world’s biggest social network

If you’ve finally given up on the world’s most popular social media network and want to get rid of Facebook, it’s not too complicated to remove yourself from the service. But before you delete all of those pictures, posts, and Likes, you should download your personal information from Facebook first.

 

Your Facebook archives contain just about all of the pertinent information related to your account, including your photos, active sessions, chat history, IP addresses, facial recognition data, and which ads you clicked, just to name a few. That’s a ton of personal information that you should probably maintain access to. To download your archive, go to “Settings” and click “Download a copy of your Facebook data” at the bottom of General Account Settings, and then click “Start My Archive.”

After you’ve finished downloading your archive, you can now delete your account.

 

Beware: once you delete your account, it cannot be recovered.

 

If you are ready to delete your account, you can click this link, which will take you to the account deletion page. (Facebook doesn’t have the delete account option in its settings, for some reason.) Once you click “Delete My Account,” your account will be marked for termination, and inaccessible to others using Facebook.

The company notes that it delays termination for a few days after it’s requested. If you log back in during that period, your deletion request will be canceled. So don’t sign on, or you’ll be forced to start the process over again. Certain things, like comments you’ve made on a friend’s post, may still appear even after you delete your account. Facebook also says that copies of certain items like log records will remain in its database, but notes that those are disassociated with personal identifiers.

 

The company says it can take up to 90 days to fully delete your account and the information associated with it, but it notes that your account will be inaccessible to other people using Facebook during that time.

If you’re really serious about quitting Facebook, remember that the company owns several other popular services as well, like Instagram and WhatsApp, so you should delete your accounts there as well.

The above is not acceptable. I understand that Facebook has multiple data centers and that may take some time to delete the data, but 90 days?

The real answer we want to know is the data still accessible to advertisers and bad actors like Cambridge Analytica during those 90 days.

Your facebook account will never been deleted, You don't see it only no more, if have asked to delete.

It makes no sense to be too simple-minded like innocent girl. An innocent girl (also virgin) - don't know, haven't seen, haven't never did, it means - doesn't exist.

You should of read the  toss before you ever joined,  no need to complain after you agreed  to it  and multiple data centers have been selling you're data for multiple years.  I always have a rule about what sites i join  if i cant join it with fake info were they don;t know who i am no way i don't bother to join it at all . Its none of  there business who i am  to start off with  .

 

What happens to content (posts, pictures) that I delete from Facebook?

When you choose to delete something you shared on Facebook, we remove it from the site. Some of this information is permanently deleted from our servers; however, some things can only be deleted when you permanently delete your account.

https://www.facebook.com/help/356107851084108?helpref=uf_permalink

 

Deleting you're account is the only way too remove everything of yours form facebook  and many other sites  that billions of people joined like Google and others can hold on to you're  data for 90 days after you delete as well .

Steven36, would you like to be my friend on facebook? :wub:

How i dont be on facebook  any more ?  Back before  2012  you couldn't delete accounts many people made fake accounts  or duplicates  back then and they count  them  as activate users even though there long gone from the site so they lie about  how many members they have even. I even used the vpn trick with mine were i signed up with fake info using a vpn  and used a vpn when i logged in  just only 2 or 3 times ever just for free software giveaways. I never used facebook to socialize in my life.

The numerous abandoned accounts on Facebook, as well as the multiple accounts many people have, incorrectly inflated the figures that Facebook claimed to have as active users.

When Facebook filed its initial public offering on Feb 1st, 2012 with the Securities and Exchange Commission, they had to admit in the S-1 IPO filing papers that only about half of the 800 million subscribers they were claiming to have at the time were actually active daily users.

A CNBC article by Reuters references the IPO filing, where it states that Facebook only had 483 million daily active users as of December 31st, 2011.

I was counted as one of the users. But I wasn't using it! Here's my story. You may relate to it with your own experience. And I'll tell you what to do about it.

When I signed up for a Facebook account and created a profile, in a very short time I started getting friend requests from people I didn’t know. This became so annoying I decided to cancel my account and delete my Facebook profile.

I have been struggling with that ever since and it became obvious to me that Facebook does not allow anyone to cancel their account and remove their data. Facebook continues to show user accounts as active members even though they are long gone and even though they have tried to cancel their accounts.

How to Really Delete Your FaceBook Profile


Okay. So here is the way to finally get yourself out of Facebook. Have fun finding this info on their site. It’s not prominently displayed. But you don’t need to look. I explain it all here.

I was actually able to get a new password to log on to my deactivated account. That was mandatory in order to get back in to delete it with their new method. I tried it in March 2011 and now I can’t find my profile. Finally really gone!

So if you can still log in, go to the following URL and carefully follow the instructions on that page.

https://www.facebook.com/help/contact.php?show_form=delete_account

If you did it all as they request, your account will be in a deactivated state for 14 days and will be permanently deleted after that 14 day period. But ONLY if you abide by all the following...
 

  • Remove any reference to your Facebook account from any other website that uses Facebook Connect logins.
  • Remove any Facebook apps from your iPhone.
  • Refrain from clicking any "Like" buttons on any sites if they use Facebook.

 

Just because it says it takes 90 days it don't mean it will take 90 days to delete  it most say it gets deleted in a few weeks they just have up to 90 days to delete it .

Glenn Stok 2 weeks ago from Long Island, NY

Matthew - I actually just helped a friend terminate his account last month. The message said 14 days. I never saw a message that says it may take up to 90 days, but the keywords are “up to” - so it still can be as little as 14 days.

The other thing is that if you keep checking from one account to the other. I’m not sure if that will cause activity related delays. Facebook is known to cancel the request if you have any activity after trying to cancel your account. So the best thing is to ignore it and leave it alone.

The canceled account becomes totally hidden from view of anybody who looks for you. It works well as long as you don’t have an connections to other active sites, which is why you need to remove all your “likes” before canceling.

How to DELETE Your Facebook Account (REALLY!) – 2018 Update

 

 

Are you living life or are you just talking about it? One of the biggest problems with Facebook is the more time we spend updating our profile and following other people’s lives, the less time we actually spend living.

Of course, there are other concerns with Facebook, and there has been considerable controversy surrounding the company’s willingness to sell information to potential advertisers. Recently, a leaked document suggested that Facebook was offering advertisers the opportunity to sell to teenagers at times when their posts indicated they needed a bit of a confidence boost. In other words, indicating a proclivity to exploit young people at times when they were emotionally vulnerable. These accusations, alongside recent fines for breaking data collection laws in Europe, make the social media behemoth look a little less like a Facebook friend and more like his evil twin.

So, if you want to liberate yourself from the clutches of Facebook, how can you achieve this freedom?

Inevitably, it’s not as easy as it would initially seem. Just as your computer holds data, background information, and paths to documents, social media holds onto a network of information that lurks in the background and remains in cyberspace gone, but not forgotten.

With Facebook constantly updating their privacy policies, you can’t simply hit delete and expect to disappear from the face of social media. Deactivating your account is straightforward, but this doesn’t mean it has been deleted. If you return at a later date wishing to reactivate your account, you’ll discover that all your information is still there, waiting to be restored. If you actually delete your account, there is no way to access it again in the future and the content will be irretrievable.

Here’s a step-by-step guide to how to perform the ultimate Facebook disappearing act:

1. Delete linked apps

One of Facebook’s useful functions is the ability to use our Facebook account to login to other applications, such as Instagram, Pinterest or Spotify. We often fail to consider that this function means we are giving out information every time we use it, letting others access and store our personal information. The first step to Facebook freedom is to remove those apps that are linked to your Facebook account.

  1. First, click on the arrow in the top right-hand corner of your Facebook page. Then select “Settings” and click on “Apps” situated in the column on the left-hand side of the page.
  2. Click on the edit button under the heading “Apps, websites and plug-ins”
  3. Once you have disabled the platform, you can begin deleting the apps that are linked to your account.

https://s7d5.turboimg.net/sp/ad71e29f1196c8734ddb92663efbb973/8520365.png

 

2. Remove activity history

Now you need to clear up your virtual footprints that leave a path of your recent activity. From the downward arrow menu, select “Activity Log” and then use the edit button to delete or unlike each action listed in your log.

3. Backup data

If you want to keep hold of the information linked to your account, such as photos you have posted and the names of the friends you had within that account, you will want to download a backup of your account data.

  1. Once again, go to your settings menu.
  2. In “General Account Settings”, select the option that allows you to download a copy of all your data.
  3. You will then receive an email with a link to your download archive. The archive will be saved into your Downloads folder on your computer. This is a zip file which, when opened, reveals all your photos, as well as several html files listing your friends, advertisers and almost everything else that probably inspired you to exit Facebook in the first place.

4. Deactivate account

This next step is probably the most bewildering! Facebook wants to send you on a wild goose chase, making the option to deactivate your account easy to find and desperately pointing you in this direction. Why? Because deactivation is not deletion. Deactivation means you can just log in again and carry on as if nothing happened. So, if you’re not completely certain you want to depart from the world of Facebook forever, just deactivate your account and then, if you change your mind, you can always login again and carry on where you left off. While deactivated, your friends will not be able to post to your account or send messages.

  1. Once again, go to your settings menu.
  2. Select “General” at the top of the left-hand menu.
  3. Then click on “Manage your account” and scroll down to where it gives you the option to deactivate.

5. Delete account

Despite many efforts, finding the link to delete your account is virtually impossible. The only way I discovered it was by clicking on the help menu and then searching for “delete account”. In the answer, there is a link called “let us know”. Click on this link and it will redirect you to a page which will  finally allow you to permanently delete your account.

Now all you must do is click on “delete my account”, enter your password and submit captcha and you are finally free… well, nearly!


https://s7d8.turboimg.net/sp/f96e204f7e7a4e596f4d1b5e73308220/8296223.png

Surely you didn’t think Facebook would let you go that easily, did you? Even though you have managed to unearth the hidden link that will allow complete deletion of your account, Facebook will hold onto the information and postpone the deletion for 14 days, in the hopes that you will change your mind and hurry back into the Facebook fold. If you should access Facebook or any affiliated site during these two weeks, the deletion request will be automatically removed and you’ll once again be a Facebook follower.

So, find your footprint, get rid of it and swap your virtual stories and Facebook friends for real life and physical friends who can actually give you a hug, rather than sending a half-hearted emoticon or a thumbs up!

with your friends on Facebook (ha ha!) and see what they say.

Well, some of you might not join FB but your pictures and some little data about you can still be found there.
Thanks to the super friends you have that never tire on updating their photos. posts and messages that might also include (info about) you.

One example was my friends talking about my birthday on a group conversation and how they are going to surprise me, which also includes making me pay for that 'crazy night they are planning'. <_<
They just told FB my age and location, provided my photos and have had told FB the possibility of my whereabouts at a certain time in the future. :(
Mark Zucksomething can easily have me killed easily if he wants too, not that I'm that important but I'm just making a point here.

none of my personal friends and family are on facebook + I never shared my personal pictures with anyone (and never have) so if there's anything from me shared on FB or any other social media by others it's as good as nothing

You nailed it! The only way to completely delete is to nuke their data centers.

Me too, and the following Chicago Tribune article confirmed my suspicions about Facebook and how its user data could be misused:

 

Carol Davidsen, who served as the Obama campaign's director of data integration and media analytics, tweeted Sunday that Facebook allowed the campaign to access the data "because they were on our side."

I have never had anything to do with any social media site either AND never will.  However, please elaborate and explain what your Facebook blacklist accomplishes so I can make an informed decision about using it.

Hosts file redirects or maps hostnames to IP addresses you specify in the hosts file. It can be used to block undesirable websites, ads, etc. on your device by redirecting them to either 127.0.0.1 (localhost) or 0.0.0.0 (non-routable meta address) so that your device will not connect to them. For example, in that hosts file line 19:

 

0.0.0.0 apps.facebook.com

 

It redirects apps.facebook.com to 0.0.0.0 so that your device will not connect to apps.facebook.com. 

 

See below for the difference between 0.0.0.0 and 127.0.0.1:

 

https://superuser.com/questions/949428/whats-the-difference-between-127-0-0-1-and-0-0-0-0

See below on how to edit your hosts file in Windows, Linux, and Mac:
