Deleting your Facebook Account Posted by: Albert Lindsey 30 Oct 2010 8:56pm

After getting frustrated with walls, and uninvited friends etc, I decided to delete my Facebook Account. It turned out to be an ordeal.

The delete "button" was incredibly hard to find. I eventually got to it via the "Search - Help" function - even then it was buried in amongst text.

To my surprise, I went to a facebook page sometime later, and was invited to join (of course). My PC picked up my old login and password, and hey-presto, there was all my old stuff. I'm assuming they've still got it.

If anyone is keen on trying to delete their account, could they post the directions here for other hapless members? I don't dare go near the place again!
