Deleting Facebook account: what to do so as not to lose your contents.
If you decide to delete your account we recommend that you delete all of your data contained and collected in the social network.
Of course, in most cases these are very important memories and therefore it would be a shame to lose them.
To avoid losing all your data you will need to back up.
To start saving private data contained on Facebook you will have to follow these simple instructions: open the "Settings"; tap on “Your information on Facebook” and then on “download your information”; choose a date range to select the time period from which you intend to download data”; choose the format (html or json); select the quality of multimedia content (high, medium and low); click on "Create file" and wait for the copy of the requested information to be completed: you will then receive a link with which to download all the information contained on Facebook.
Once you have started the operation you may have to wait a few days.
You can tick which data to save and which not, creating different files and making the process easier.
After saving the data on your PC, you are ready to delete it from Facebook.
In this case, however, you will have to proceed individually for each piece of information.
For example, if you want to delete your personal information you will have to connect to your personal profile page and select “Update information” (you will find it under the cover photo).
Subsequently, a page will open containing all your personal information (school attended, name of girlfriend, place of work).
You can delete this information individually by clicking on the "Edit" button located next to it.
Instead, to delete photos you will have to go to the dedicated section and click on the "Album" tab.
By selecting the gear icon you can delete each album individually and consequently all the photos inside it.
After you have done all these operations and your Facebook profile no longer contains any personal data, you are ready to delete it.
