With Facebook recently making their privacy conditions not for my liking and many others as well, I looked into permanently deleting my Facebook account. Maybe some people don’t care but I know a lot of Australians that don’t agree.
You can put on a kind off pause where no one can access the details but nothing gets deleted. To actually delete the facebook account and get rid of all personal stuff and photos etc, go to https://ssl.facebook.com/help/contact.php?show_form=delete_account and choose delete. Just like this picture shows.
Simple isn’t it, even though it is a bit hard to find.
