Facebook is the most popular social media platform available in today’s world. It has billions of active users on their website who use it as per their needs. In some cases, you may not feel the need to use Facebook for either a few days or forever. Whenever such a situation arises, you can choose the option to either deactivate or delete the Facebook account.

Most of the users have quite a vague idea about the difference between the deletion and deactivation of the Facebook account. This blog explains the basic difference between deleting a Facebook account and deactivating the Facebook account. This will help you to make a decision on whether to deactivate the Facebook account or delete it as per your situation. You can quite easily choose to either delete the Facebook account permanently or deactivate the Facebook account temporarily.

What is the difference between deleting and deactivating your Facebook account?

There is quite a difference between deleting and deactivating your Facebook account. The main difference appears in the way the account appears in searches and whether you are able to recover your account or not.

When you choose the option to deactivate the Facebook account, all the information about your account remains stored on the server. You can recover the account any time you wish just by choosing to reactivate the Facebook account. All the information of your account like your friends, family, contacts, chats, status updates, images and video uploads are retrieved when you revert back to normal. The account deactivation takes place instantly and you do not have to wait for even a moment to implement it.

In the case of account deletion, the information is removed from the server. All the data related to your account is deleted completely from the server. After the successful deletion, there is no way you can retrieve the data. The process of Facebook account deletion is a bit complex. You do not have to log in to your account for a period of 14 days. After a period of 90 days, the data is completely deleted from the server. After the period of 14 days, there is no way that you can recover the account.

So if you wish to stop using Facebook for a limited time interval and revert back to using it, deactivating the Facebook account is the best option. If you no longer wish to use Facebook in future, it would be a wise decision to delete your Facebook account.
