If you've been on Facebook, but you really hate it and you want all your personal information off, here's how. Just make sure this is really what you want to do before you do it. Facebook can be a lot of fun if you give it a real chance.

Social networking's not for everyone, I get that. Some people are really concerned about online safety, I get that too. Making friends online is time consuming and some people would rather be out there making "real" friends and doing other activities, I also get that.

There is a way to have an online live and and offline life at the same time. I do it, and I many other people that do it. It takes a bit of willpower to not get tied up in all the games and online activities, but it can be done.

Think hard before deleting your Facebook account! ...(Here's How)

If you decided to delete your Facebook account, please tell us why? I'd be really interested to hear your story.

I feel like I can never move on with my life because I see people I was friends with or guys I dated and I feel like I can never let go unless I just delete it and MOVE ON.

Stephanie, you can always unfriend or block people you don’t want to see anymore. Or must simply hide friend’s messages. http://personalweb.about.com/od/makefriendsonfacebook/a/facebooknewsfeed.htm

ok, facebook was filling my inbox with requests and crap. I turned off all notifications and it didn’t stop. I deactivated my account…IT STILL DIDN’T STOP.
I emailed facebook and was given a BS response of how to manually remove all the content in my profile.
This didn’t help with the email notifications.
At this point I got creative.
First I posted F#$% FACEBOOK on my wall.
Then I changed my profile photo to a pornographic pic.
THen I deactivated my account and emailed abuse@facebook.com and told them my account has been hacked and I was offended by the pictures posted.

Within minutes my account was gone!!!!!

Feel free to repost this to help others

Trying to find out how to delete the FB account through this particular About webpage seems riddle with guilt. “Are you sure you want to?” “Are you ‘really’ sure?” “It can be fun you know.”

Is someone here getting kickbacks from FB to keep us from deleting our accounts?

Facebook is a sham.
I’ve been sitting here for two hours now, trying to delete my account, and FB keeps saying I’m entering the wrong password. I’ve even copied and pasted it from Notepad, just so I can inspect e v e r y letter and not just asterisks, but it still says I’m incorrect.

I’ve logged in and out, just to see if my password was working right and it was fine! The only problem is that FB keeps on CLAIMING that I am entering the wrong password.

And by the way, why do you have to wait two whole weeks to wait for your account to obliterate? How about by the time you hit Delete, it’s all gone! That easy!

It’s Facebook bull.

Noah, log out of Facebook from your grandmothers account. Then log in using your own username and password. Then you should be in your own Facebook.
