The quick and easy guide to deactivating your Facebook account using the app
Facebook has set itself to be the social media overlord, and with ownership of all major platforms, there is no one who can really challenge this fact. Over the years, Facebook has helped people reconnect with old friends, share updates with family and social groups, collaborate with people all over the world, and much much more. Changing times have changed priorities for people, and it looks like the crowd is warming up to the image-sharing platform Instagram over the regular Facebook application, while there are some who have lost interest altogether and want out of the social media circus as a whole.
If you are someone who is trying to get a break from social media or planning to leave it altogether, then the first step in the process is to make up your mind. It can be very tempting to stay on board and just sign out, but if you do that, then chances are that you will log back in by the end of the day. If you are looking to take a break from social media, then Facebook actually gives you an option to deactivate your account, which basically means that your account will be kept dormant until you sign back into it.
Thankfully, since all major social media platforms have mobile applications, account deactivation can also happen right from inside your smartphone.
In this quick and easy guide, we will show you how to deactivate your Facebook account, using the smartphone app.
Step 1. Open the Facebook app on your smartphone.
Step 2. Tap on the ‘Menu‘ button on the home screen of the Facebook app.
