After being jerked off by boy Zukerman and his band of post pubescent trolls I’ve had enough. I want out and their program which is designed to make sure that never happens. Think of Facebook as a malignant metastatic tumor. (Just kidding Facebook legal beagles, I’m sure you get the analogy.) It appears the doctor has arrived with a probable cure.
In case you’ve been wondering how to delete your Facebook account and intend to jump ship to Google+, or are simply tired of how Facebook treats you and your privacy as a user, this post is for you.
When it comes to providing its users with an option to quit, Facebook has always been a notorious company. They make it ridiculously tricky for a user to quit their service in a bid to keep them tied into it. The option to actually delete a Facebook account permanently isn’t even directly available on their site. Users need to do a lot of digging about in order to get the option to close their account completely. All they do provide is an option for a user to deactivate an account, and this too came about only after protests from a lot of users.
This post answers the all-time question, “How to delete my Facebook account?!”
How To Delete Your Facebook Account Permanently
Firstly, you need to understand how Facebook handles account deletions. There are a lot of websites on the Internet that allow you to sign in using your Facebook account. This service is called Facebook Connect. The thing about this authentication is that using your account from said websites will cancel your account deletion request and keep you tied in to Facebook. So, as a user who wants to deactivate a Facebook account permanently, your first step of action would be to de-authorize sites from using your Facebook account for sign-ins. You can do this by going to Account > Account Settings. Thereafter, remove all Linked Accounts from the page that shows up.
