You have deactivated your Facebook account. You can reactivate your account at any time by logging into Facebook using your old login email and password. You will be able to use the site like you used to.

If simply logging in restores the site to EXACTLY as it was before, they've kept all the data and keep receiving messages and updates for you, how is it deactivated exactly?

Back in December I made a Facebook account so that I could send a message to an old friend that I wanted to get back into contact with. For giggles I filled in the interests, favorite authors, movies, athletes, people that influence you, etc sections, just to get an idea of how everything worked. Didn't enter any real information, not even my real name, turned all the security features to the most secure settings, etc. When I was done playing around and after I had gotten a response from my old friend with updated normal contact information I selected to deactivate the facebook account. For months afterwards I got spam from Facebook about how I should come back, blah blah blah. I wanted to see how the reactivation process worked and I was REALLY surprised when I just logged in and everything was how I left it, no actual reactivation process or anything and everything was still there. So I guess when someone deactivates a real facebook account they need to go through and manually delete everything they've ever put on Facebook. What a pita.
