One of my niche markets is Senior Real Estate. With the growing rumbles of discontent with social media and privacy concerns, I have had an increase in client conversations where they have questioned continuing to use Facebook. Many have told me that they have had accounts for years but haven't logged in for awhile and won't use it again. So,, how to delete their information online? In reviewing Facebook on this topic, here is the helpful information that they provide on how to delete an account; as well as, how to undelete your deletion. They also offer information on temporarily deactivating an account:
How do I permanently delete my account?
Before deleting your account, you may want to log in and download a copy of your information (like your photos and posts) from Facebook. After your account has been deleted, you won't be able to retrieve anything you've added.
To permanently delete your account:
- Click at the top right of any Facebook page.
- Click Settings.
- Click Your Facebook Information in the left column.
- Click Delete Your Account and Information, then click Delete My Account.
Can I cancel my account deletion?
If it's been less than 14 days since you initiated the deletion, you can cancel your account deletion. After 14 days, your account and all your information will be permanently deleted, and you won't be able to retrieve your information.
It may take up to 90 days from the beginning of the deletion process to delete all the things you've posted. While we're deleting this information, it's not accessible to other people using Facebook.
To cancel your account deletion:
- Log into your Facebook account within 14 days of deleting your account.
- Click Cancel Deletion.
