We’ve had this question a few times lately, so I thought I’d post it here.

Q: Is there a way to completely delete my page on Facebook?

A: Yes, go to your Account Settings, Security, and Deactivate your account.  That will make it inaccessible to everyone, but if you change your mind you can reactivate it.  To Delete it completely, you need to fill out a ‘Delete my Account’ form and Facebook will take it from there.

Here is Facebook’s official help page on Deleting your Account.

An important thing to understand is that you must be able to get into your account in order to delete it.  I know some people have mistakenly created two accounts – in order to delete the wrong one, you must know the username and password to login.
