There are times in life when we all need to walk away from something and take a deep breath. As great as Facebook is for keeping in touch with friends and family, it can become a distraction that gets in the way of other, more important things. How many times have you been out and about and seen a server or someone who is supposed to be working take a moment to update their Facebook account while you wait to be served? If you haven’t witnessed something like that, perhaps it’s because you were far too busy updating your own status, or making sure to check in at wherever you are visiting.
There is absolutely no denying that Facebook can get in the way of productivity, especially when you have online farms that need tending, to just have to play that 7-letter word in a puzzle game against a friend. There are of course plenty of people who can use Facebook responsibly, but it is often they who find themselves bothered by the friends that can’t. Is there really anything worse than logging on to check your timeline, only to find it filled to brimming with a hundred different pictures that have your name tagged in them, even when you barely know the person?

First you will want to go to http://facebook.com/groups
Once you click that you will then want to select a group name and you must add at least 1 person to the group before Facebook lets you create a group. The you will want to choose what kind of group you want. Open: meaning anyone can join. Closed: meaning anyone can try to join and only admins can approve or disapprove people trying to join. Private: meaning only the admin can invite people to join the group, also no one will be able to see this group besides members.

It is virtually impossible now to find someone that doesn’t have a Facebook account, but it’s not that hard to track someone down who has become completely disillusioned with life on the social network. It’s amazing how often petty little squabbles erupt, blowing up timelines and dividing networks with the single post of a comment or link that someone doesn’t like. It’s not that difficult to maintain a quiet life on Facebook, especially if you know how to block out the white noise, but if you really have had enough and feel as though you need a break, then deactivation of your account may very well be the way to go.
Sometimes all that is required is a little cooling off period, especially since deleting your Facebook account entirely means losing everything that you have posted there since you began. That may be fine if you have everything backed up somewhere else on your system, but is definitely not recommended if you are using FB as a dumping ground for all of your personal pictures and videos. Going with deactivation allows you that freedom to walk away from the timeline craziness and gather your senses a little. It may also give you the time to figure out which friends will stay and which will go if you do decide to re-activate at a later date.
I’m sure that by now your biggest question is like to be, “how do I deactivate my account,” with the good news being that it’s a lot less complicated than the lives of the people causing all the drama on your timeline. In fact, deactivating your account can be done in just 4 simple steps that shouldn’t take you any more than a few seconds, unless of course you are still trembling with rage from the account that led you to deactivate in the first place. In that case, it might take a minute or two.
The first thing you need to do is click the little account menu button on the top right of your Facebook page. It’s the one that looks like a little wheel. You will be greeted with a drop down menu from which you should then select Account Settings. That will take you to a page where you will find all of the relevant information about your account. On the left hand menu you should then click Security, at which point you will be taken to another page. At the bottom of that menu you will see a link for deactivation. Click that and you will be taken to a page that asks you to explain exactly why you want to deactivate your account. You will also see pictures of some of your friends, with a little bleeding heart message saying how much they will miss you. Fill out as much, or as little, of the information as you feel is necessary, click confirm and you are officially deactivated from Facebook.
One of the cooler features that Facebook has is the ability to set up a group where like-minded individuals can come and hang out. Many people start groups about their favorite band or as a shrine of sorts to a movie that they think is the greatest thing ever. Groups can very much take on a mind of their own, as it can start to go off topic very, very quickly, making it difficult to mediate and keep under control. That is one of the reasons that the person who started the group in the first place feels the need to just shut it down completely.
They will normally try to plead with the group to keep all the chatter on topic, so that the integrity of the group is maintained. These requests are usually shot down in very unsympathetic ways, leaving the group leader no choice but to wield the axe. As the administrator of the group, you have the power to go in and delete people as you see fit, although you do run the risk of then alienating everyone else in the group who believed that the person you gave the chop to was the coolest one in the bunch.
You also have the option of simply deleting yourself from the group, leaving someone else to look after it once you are gone. This is often the easiest way out, especially if you feel that the group has completely gone off track and isn’t what you expected it to be in the first place. There is also the chance that no matter how wonderful your group may be in principle, it just won’t be popular enough for anyone else to join. In a situation where a group has no members, Facebook does the humane thing and simply goes ahead and deletes it.
Then there is the scenario, which is actually probably the most common of all, that the group just runs out of steam completely and people stop posting. Perhaps the band that you all loved went ahead and broke up, or that awesome movie ended up being nothing more than another hunk of Hollywood drivel. In that case, you might just want to go ahead and delete the Facebook group completely. It’s not that difficult to do, but it can be a little laborious if you have enrolled thousands of members into the group.
What you need to do in this particular situation is go into the group and remove every single member, leaving yourself to the very end. Once you click the About tab at the top of the group page, you will see a complete list of all the members. All you then need to do is click the “X” beside their name to permanently remove them from the group. Your name will be the last one to go, and once you have clicked the “X” beside your own name the group will be permanently deleted.
Hundreds of millions of people across the world now log into their Facebook accounts each and every day. For most, that means posting updates, checking pictures, and keeping in touch with their family and friends. Facebook has become the number one way to stay in contact with friends and family, but it has also become a burden to a few people. There is always that chance that petty arguments will spring up, or that people will feel their privacy is somehow being invaded just by having an active account, which often leads to those folks wondering how to delete a Facebook account.
