How to deactivate

Once you have decided to join Mass Deactivation, it might be helpful to know how to deactivate your account, which is not the most intuitive process:

  1. Click on the little arrow in the top-right corner of the screen
  2. Click "Account Settings"
  3. Click "Security"
  4. Click "Deactivate your account" located at the bottom of the list of options
  5. Underneath the photos telling you how much your friends will miss you (no joke), choose your reason(s) for deactivating. If you choose "other" you have to explain further why you would want to deactivate
  6. Follow the instructions to confirm your deactivation
If/when you decide you want to reactivate, you just log in again.

Important: Deactivating your Facebook does not delete your pictures, posts, friends, interests, or any other information that you have given the company. Everything will still be there when you decide to log back in. Actually deleting your Facebook requires another set of steps.
