Facebook is a great way for us to stay in contact with family and friends we haven’t seen in a while and kill time playing mindless games. But maybe you’ve come to the point where Facebook just isn’t for you, and you want to permanently delete your account. How do you get rid of it for good? The first step is to search for “delete account” in the Facebook Help Center, which is at Facebook.com/Help. Facebook will warn you that once your profile is deleted, the information you had on there will be inaccessible. Click “Delete My Account.” You’re then asked if you’re really sure you want to get rid of your account. Click yes, enter your password, complete the “captcha” code and click okay. An e-mail from Facebook will confirm that you’ve successfully deleted your account. If you have a sudden change of heart, don’t worry: Facebook gives you a two week grace period. Log back into your account and click the “Cancel Deletion” button.
