Shelly Palmer Radio Report – April 1, 2014

Facebook is a great way to stay connected with family and friends, and to kill some time by playing a few levels of Candy Crush. But if you’ve come to the point where Facebook is more of a burden than a blessing, permanently deleting your account is pretty easy. Here’s how to get rid of it for good. 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 there will be inaccessible. Then, click “Delete My Account.” You’ll be asked if you’re really sure you want to get rid of your account, and if you click yes, enter your password, and complete the “captcha” … you’re gone. An e-mail from Facebook will confirm that you’ve successfully deleted your account. And if you all of a sudden have a 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 … and everything will be right with the world.
