I do believe it's possible to cancel your account. Someone I know did that a couple of years ago, and then started a new account about six months later. It was strange, but that tells me it can be done.
Good luck to you.
But seriously, if you can't figure out how to cancel your account entirely, just don't ever go there again.
...friends "deactivate" their page... and they can reactivate when they want to check up on friends, they deactivate again. I think you can also delete your page completely, but I don't see the point because you lose all your photos and can't look at facebook stuff. I know people who regretted that... I would just change my settings so nobody could post, and leave.
Click on the question mark in the upper right-hand corner of the FB screen after you log in. There's a search box at the top of the drop-down list. Just type "delete account" in there and another drop-down list will give you options and instructions.
Thank you again.
they won't let you into your page. You can ask them at their help section and they ignore it, and refuse deleting it for you, so I'll never make that mistake again. Same with emails, you can unsubscribe but they keep sending them. pitifully run.
