How to Deactivate Facebook Account Permanently

Facebook has 2 methods to disable your account. One is relatively easy to fix and the other is irreversible.

You can deactivate an account and then later reactivate it. While it's deactivated, individuals can't see your timeline or search for you, though some information, such as messages you sent, might still show up.

If you remove your account, it's gone for life and can not be reactivated. Facebook says that they "delay removal a couple of days after it's asked for" which a deletion request is canceled if you log back right into your account during that period. They even more say that it can use up to 90 days to remove information stored in back-up systems.
