I deleted my Facebook account in December as I got so fed up with it and it's such a waste of our precious lives.
As far as I know, now Facebook gives you the chance to delete (before you could only desactivate) your account completely. Everything is deleted, including photos etc. But of course, that is only what Facebook says and I don't know how they really work behind the scenes.
