    Several days ago I noticed that one person (we were in correspondence) deleted his account and now I cannot see what he wrote to me:

    I thought that this happens when somebody simply deletes his/her account, but then I run this experiment: I created my second account and wrote to my first one, then I deleted (https://www.facebook.com/help/delete_account) my second account and in the first account I noticed that the name and contents of the messages wrote by me (i.e. in second account) was not deleted, I still can read them. So, could you please tell me when and under what circumstances happens this?

    Is it possible that the person you were corresponding with got their Account hacked or infected by a virus?

    Or, possibly in the Test you tried- maybe the extra account was not active long enough before you closed it or not used enough prior to disabling it?!!

    Those is the first two sweets to drop out of my "Gumball Machine".

    The personal messages always stay, as far as I know. These (above) messages are blurred because they were marked as abusive or as spam.

    So, as far as I know...
    You can't do it.

    I think that person DIDN'T delete his account: Facebook deleted his account. It's different. So, instead of reading his messages, you found a message saying "This message is no longer available because it was identified as abusive or marked as spam". Some people are not either abusive or spammers, but if someone reports them to Facebook for anything, Facebook can delete their account.

    No, sometimes they are erased completely, I have noticed this several times.



    So, how can I force Facebook to erase my account? Should I report “deleting” account from my first/primary one?

    Have you tried requesting it?

    What have you tried already? There is a deactivate option.

    dont act stupid, it is obvious he is asking hoe to erase his data from facebook profile.

    https://www.facebook.com/help/359046244166395/

    Basically facebook requires that the user lets them know that they want their information removed permanently.

    On FB of course


    No, will this work?


    I do not need deactivation, I want to complete deletion, but everything that I sent to others should also erase like this:

    How this can be done?

    Just undermine a TOS point like not using a real name (change all you details to fake information) they occasionally purge old accounts with blatantly bogus data. (Try Walt Disney for a starter, just be careful you don't end up the way of DeadMaus.)

    Don't insult the poster, insult the content. Saying "don't act stupid" is a shot at him as an individual. 8D

    Deactivate. There's an option to delete.
    Why are you asking us when you haven't even tried anything yet?

    There isn't a 'ready-made' option to delete your account. You can deactivate it, but facebook will still keep your information in their registry. They can always manually delete the information from their systems, but you will need to contact them personally.
