Variety of problems such as our account doesn’t work properly, login problems, password recovery issues and so many on…. These issues are the internal issues of facebook but we also have internal issues due to which we deactivate the account. Now you must be wondering why we deactivate Facebook accounts due to our internal issues? So let me tell you: sometimes we feel stressed or anxious in our life and those days we like to be less in the interaction of friends or there may be many more reasons like we have to concentrate on our professional life for sometime or we want to make another account but we don’t want to delete our old account. What we do in that situation is that if these issues get solved then it is ok. Otherwise we deactivate our account.  So today our topic is the same “ How to deactivate Facebook account? 

 Many people have a lot of issues in deactivating the account. So this blog is only for those who want to know how to deactivate the account without needing anyone help.

But before proceeding further, I would like to remove one of the confusion from the user’s mind. Many users feel that deactivating or deleting an account is the same thing. But it’s not that but it’s both a different thing.

Deactivate Doesn’t Mean Delete

Yes of course both not are the same thing. Deactivating an account is not the permanent deletion of a Facebook account, it’s temporary. They are for some time as long as we wait. It’s our wish that when we activate our Facebook account from back. There are some things that we should know about what happens when we deactivate our Facebook account:

  • After deactivating our account, no one or our friends can search our profile on facebook.
  • We also can’t search other users on facebook, even our friends.
  • But we can message anyone because we deactivate facebook account not facebook messenger.
  • We can’t post on facebook.
  • But our earlier conversation which we have done or comments placed on someone photos before deactivating the Facebook account is not removed.But our uploaded post can’t be visible to anyone after deactivating Facebook account.  

Now, Delete Facebook account is the permanent deletion of account. If we delete the account once, then we cannot open the same account again. Then we have to create another one.

So that’s the difference. Now, we hope every user will understand.
