How Can you Delete your Facebook Account Permanently

Sometime back one of my friend asked me “How can I delete my Facebook account permanently, whenever I am trying to delete, it is getting activated again”. So this post will answer that question and will explain why it was getting reactivated again.

Facebook allows you to temporarily deactivate your account which will hide all your information on Facebook from others that means no one will be able to access your information on Facebook. But this does not permanently delete your Facebook account, whenever you want you can again re activate your account and you can see all your data as it was. But what if you want to delete your Facebook account permanently?

This article will guide you on how to permanently delete a Facebook account with some other tips that need to be taken care before and after deleting your Facebook account.
