How Can You Remove Yourself From Facebook Once You Have Signed Up?

The initial novelty of communicating with friends and family on Facebook can sometimes wear off. If you opened a Facebook account but have now become tired of the social networking site then you might want to cancel the account. To remove yourself from Facebook you’ll need to log in to the site and deactivate your account from the “Account Settings” menu. This removes your profile from Facebook so that friends, family and contacts can no longer view it.
