CNBC recently explained how to download everything Facebook knows about you. But what if you want to delete everything it knows about you?
If you follow these steps you will no longer have a Facebook account. Conversely, you can also "deactivate" your account if you want to step away for a temporary amount of time and still have access to all of your history when you come back.
If you've been worried about some of the deep knowledge Facebook has on you, however, then this is the best way to get everything removed, save for log records that Facebook says will stick around in its databases "but are disassociated from personal identifiers."
