Difference Between Deactivating and Deleting Facebook Account:
You may have this question when I say you can deactivate or Delete your account, so here are some difference between Deleting and Deactivating your Fb account.

- A Deactivated account can be Reactivated by you at any time, where you can’t reactivate when you delete your account.
