Hello everyone! I know I can find the answer anywhere on the internet but I want to post my question here and want your responses. So how can I delete my Facebook Account? I forgot the password of my first Facebook account so I decided to make a new one. Yesterday I tried to open my first account and I successfully retrieve the password and open it. I want to delete it because I don't want to use it anymore. I want my 2nd account. Aside from this, my friend got confused where they should contact me, so i want to delete it. help me please!

So you deactivated it! But is it stable? What if you try to log in, say after 20 days? Will you get a message like 'this account does not exist'?

That's why no one can't 'delete' their account... I'll tell you a story I forgot my password and requested for a reset link. Got none. So I tried making a new account with the same email id. Success! Then one day I requested for a reset link again... this time I got one. Resetting it, what do I get? My old account! So now, I could use my new account, and sometimes my old one. Only difference being in passwords. Later I just managed to change email id of one, and now I have two fully functional accounts! Quite amusing, no?

you can deactivate your told account if you would like. Facebook has it to where you can deactivate it and come back at any time if you would like by just logging into the account like it was never deleted or you can go into it further where there is a link where you can permanently delete it but you have to wait 14 days before this happens. If you log in before the 14 days are up then it reactivates your account.

It was long ago, but I think I tried after 14 days..... not before that. Oops... I forgot to mention I tried to delete one of my accounts before I decided 'two is better than one".
