    I suspended my Facebook long ago but I do have a “fake” Facebook profile for easy login to apps. It has no friends and no info. Just for convenience.

    1 – You “delete” your profile (it is never deleted, just suspended)
    2 – Someone gains unwanted access to Facebook profiles and you think you’re fine because CNET tells you that you can “delete” your profile.
    3 – They have your entire profile.

    The only way to protect yourself is to have never created a profile. Even if you “delete” your profile it is still 100% intact and can be resumed at any time, AND can be hacked or acquired by unwanted entities.

    Delete Facebook? Your profile is never deleted. Stop using “deleted.” Your account is suspended not deleted. I shutdown my profile, then decided to reactivate it, and EVERYTHING was still intact. My entire profile was reestablished. They never delete your profile. Ever! Please correct
