I have a Facebook account and facebook messenger. I created Facebook messenger account first with my number and then I created a Facebook account. I don't really post anything on the Facebook account or use it. If I delete it can I still use the Facebook messenger account?

I pressed send before I’d finished
No, it’s unlikely as the accounts are linked.

Ok thanks but if I deactivate my Facebook account instead of deleting it then I can still use messenger right?

I think deactivating and deleting are the same thing. It might be worth trying to contact FB and asking.

No deactivating is temporary and you can log back in at any time even many years later as long as you remember your login details but deleting is permanent, once you delete your account, you can never get it back. There isn't really a way to contact Facebook directly, I tried the help page but there's nothing unless your account has been disabled there's a form to fill in but they have no email or number to call.

If I remember correctly, once you've deleted your Facebook then you can't use anything to do with that account.

However, there is another, far more common option, which is to deactivate it - if you do that then you can log in at any time and start off again where you left off.

I'd personally delete it (so that it is wiped away) then start again with a new account if/when you want to join up again.
