How do I cancel/delete my Facebook account?

Facebook's refusal to take down the distorted videos of Nancy Pelosi is enough for me. I seldom use my own Facebook account so I have no idea how to get rid of it. Can someone tell me what to do>

protest parade regarding FB. And twitter and instagram and all the others.

I have very dear friends that are on them. And I have some understanding of 'sharing' news etc. about family life. Not chastising any who participate. You could spend beaucoup hours getting snagged on FB. I told my husband about all the security issues. Now it's up to me to undo his account. Gone just over 2 months ago. Got into a brawl w/his (expletive) sister over stuff she was posting.

Go blow, FB!
