Everybody needs a fake account to get their daily talking points from folks like Cain and Palin.

Just change the name to an alias, switch to a throwaway email addy, and rock on.

Try: https://www.facebook.com/help/delete_account

This should do something, but never used yet.

You can’t. They own your data now, though you can shut down your account.

I use FB to annoy liberals. I am “friends” with Think Progress and I drive them crazy. Get called all sorts of names. Their followers really are stupid.

I don’t think that is very difficult, although I never needed to.

However: how to you uncontact a contact on linkedin?

It isn't your stuff. When you put it on Facebook, it becomes their stuff, and they can do with it whatever they want to.

Forever!

Try Googling "cancel facebook account"

Facebook is like the Hotel California:

As others have said, you simply can not delete it. You can make it “inactive” but all your information, and everything posted to it, exists until the next comet to kill the dinosaurs hits the Earth.

Find out what FB policies would cause them to run you off, then do it.

Wave your hand over the computer while saying, “I divorce you,” three times.
