i spend quiet a lot of time on face book, i was enjoyable, i have a lot of friends, i get a lot of likes and comment but i realize form the other day it has been getting a bit annoying. i dont know most of the people in my friends list ans further more i dont talk to most of them. i am starting to think that my fb account has been a burden to me with all those notifications chain messages friend request etc. i am really considering to delete the account.

Sounds like a great idea, shansavy I, too, realized that I didn't really know most of the people on my account, so I deleted it entirely and started a new one. The new one has the people I actually know, but sometimes it is rather boring as I really don't know very many of the peoples.

i dont have a problem with meeting totally new people on it but the thing is most of them are just there i dont have any interactions with them. its like most people in my friend list are unnecessary.

Yes, that's how I felt about it, too. I enjoy meeting the new people, but then I never interacted with them. I have a few people on my new account who I kept from the old account. In fact, most of my friends with whom I interact on my account are from other countries. And, yes, you can delete the account permanently. I was told that if I returned to the account within 14 days that it would be reactived. But after that, it was gone.

yes thats what i am going to do. the only reason why it is still up is because i need to suggest my new page to some of my old friends and to take some of my pics.

yes you can make it permanent, if you dont access it for 14 days after deactivation it will be deleted permanently. i am going to make a new one and control the amount of requests i accept.

Sorry but i dont believe you. Mark zuckerberg has said he will never make the deletion of accounts permanent.

Facebook Help makes it quite clear that you can delete your account permanently: http://www.facebook.com/help/account-settings-and-deletion
