Here’s a good news for all those who want to delete there Facebook accounts permanently,   we have come to know of a new test phase of Delete option to be made available within the settings menu. Here’s what Facebook reps had to say:

This is JUST a test that we are running with a very small fraction of a percent of users. We are constantly testing new ideas, including the placement of various features on the site. One of these recent tests included variations of the delete account option for a very small percentage of people.

Testing potential features is an important part of our product development process, and tells us if they benefit users in the way we think they will, what we might do to make them even better, and in some instances, when we need to go back to the drawing board. Many tests, while very useful for user feedback, don’t result in the changing of the product and/or the features within a product.

If it finally passes the test phase, the new account deactivation panel will include a checkbox to “Permanently delete [your] account and all information [you] have shared”. In theory, this mechanism will completely take any trace of your social antics out of their database, destroying your Facebook presence right the moment you click “Confirm”.

For all those who can’t what for this option to be made available please keep your socks on I will update with another post on the same. Keep lookout !
