My account has been hacked…and when I try and sign in…it keeps telling me that my account has been temporarily deactivated…I cant even find my own account name on facebook when im searching anymore…does this mean that it is temporarily or permanently deactivated?

You should try to reset your password then. Even though I just found this it is still great info. Do they just put peoples names in there and wait for them to open account?

Hi man, thank you for this post it was a great way of clearing doubts. I think i got it figured it out now, but I decided to comment anyway to at least show you some gratitude.

I have a band and we messed up by creating 2 different pages in the same account, one profile and one as artist, we tried to delete it all and start it over with different emails etc, but all we did was mess it up even harder, now we even got the links all wrong.

But this was before i found your tutorial lol. I tried to set up an official fan page which I think I successfully did. Then apparently I also set up a personal page using the same email. Is it my understanding I messed up and have to delete and start over to get just a fan page? I started a business account. I already had a personal account.

I now have 2 accounts of fb which is illegal — to them. I read in previous posts that in two weeks the email address will be free — but what about the business name?

That being said, we really need someone from facebook to help us define the use cases or scenerios it is referring to in order to properly translate exactly what they are saying in Sections 2. There is a Firefox add-on that blocks connections between your computer and Facebook while you browse the Internet. I have both NoFace and Ghostery installed in Firefox and they work just fine.

Whats more worrying is that if you decide to delete your email address after deactivating facebook and the address gets reallocated then the new owner has full control over that the account linked to that email. I also noticed my self being sucked into arguments on certain groups I would join, by the trolls that joined for that reason only! I am sure I can spend my time in a much better way, and in a much better place, ie.

What ever the day brings, it has to be more productive, than the last 13 months wasted on face-book! The platform that our website is built on requires email entries for comments.

You see i was just recently hacked and now i have no control over my gmail and facebook. I made a new email and password. So once my account gets unlocked i will be able to log in. Me or a different me? Or would i log on to me, but none of my posts and comments and other things and friends not be saved.

Well and which ever one it is how will i know that they arent going to do it again. I mean i dont want to keep getting hacked when the only thing i do on facebook is a game.

Hard for mi to open facebook aplication ME never sain in my mail and password i try many times and never access please wats happen. I had changed the email address associated with my account, but it looks like Facebook keeps the old emai address also.

No, I just dont want people finding me on FaceBook by seaching for me using an old email address. I thought I signed my soul away with them. Pheww…wiping sweat off forehead: Is that suppose to happen because I want my facebook account totally gone but it keeps showing up.

Reminds me of Windows: The click to chose the option in the first place would not do. Facebook forces their mobil view upon at least iPhone users. It is amatter of respect a cookie which can store a choise to use the ordinary full site view.

Since iPhone is very capable iin presenting full size web pages it is the better option imo. But Facebook forces you back to the mobile view after clickin the main links up on the left side. Yes I have been bug reporting about this a couple of time but with no result. Do i check the email alert opt out, or will that just allow me not to know when people have tagged me etc?

I deactivated my facebook only to realize a week later that I had used my facebook login to create an account on Flickr. I use flickr very often and am disappointed that my only option may be to reactivate my Facebook to be able to use flickr.

Is there anyway to keep using flickr without my facebook login or will I have to start over with Flickr? And would you happen to know whether or not my flickr account is even still there since I deleted my FB? That being said, if you did use your facebook account to login to Flickr, the 14 day timer to delete your account has been deactivated so you will need to go through the steps I listed above again to delete your account.

However I no longer have access to the original email address because it expired.

I was still able to log into facebook with the expired email and my password and I completed the deltetion request. My question is will the account still delete even though I will not receive the confirming email?

Michelle — Yup your fine. No need to have access to the old email account. If you logged in and went through the delete process you should be fine in 14 days — deleted that is. One more quick question for you- Does the 14 day delete period start the same day you submit the delete request or does it begin the next day?

I just want to ensure I wait long enough before checking to make sure the account is gone. Michelle — Just to be safe, I would wait a full 16 or 17 days personally just to be safe.
