We’ve listed below the basic things you should expect will happen to your Facebook account if you deactivate it.
Deactivating your account means:
1. You can reactivate your account whenever you want
2. People can’t see your Facebook Timeline, or search for you
3. Some information may remain visible (like messages you’ve sent)
4. Facebook saves your account info (like friends and interests) in case you reactivate
