You can deactivate your Facebook account temporarily and choose to come back whenever you want.
To deactivate your account:

- Select Settings
- Click General in the left column or visit: web.facebook.com/settings?tab=account

If you deactivate your account your profile won’t be visible to other people on Facebook and people won’t be able to search for you. Some information, such as messages you sent to friends, may still be visible to others.
