In this post, you will see a detailed guideline on how to permanently bring down your Facebook account with ease.

But before you deactivate your account, here are some things you have to note;

  1. No one else can see your profile.
  2. Some information, like messages you sent to friends, may still be visible.
  3. Your friends may still see your name on their friends’ list. This is only visible to your friends, and only from their friends’ list.
  4. Group admins may still be able to see your posts and comments, along with your name.
  5. You will not be able to use your Facebook account to access Oculus products or your Oculus information.

If you don’t want your Page to be deactivated, you can give someone else full control of your Page. You’ll then be able to deactivate your account without deactivating the Page.

Keep in mind that if you choose to keep Messenger active or are logged into Messenger when you deactivate your Facebook account, then Messenger will remain active.
