How do I delete my Facebook account?

Keep in mind, Facebook doesn't want you to delete it because that means lost revenue for you so they keep it inactive for 30 days prior to deletion. Secondly, you'll see a way to save all your pictures prior to deletion so it may be a good idea for you to download everything you want prior to closing your account.
