    It's gone.....unless you can find someone at Facebook to help and that is unlikely.

    I would personally just delete the account.

    Let it go and forget about it. Don’t need Facebook. Waste of time.

    If you enjoy Facebook, start another. You most likely aren’t getting it back unless you’re a real high profile person. Then, make sure you’re password is stupid hard to guess. Don’t click links in messenger. And make sure you have two-factor identification.

    Start a new account under an alias. That would be cool. You could do all kinds of things

    Find someone similar and steal theirs.

    Happened to me years ago. Never used it for anything but setting up my business page. One day a friend called and told me to stop sending porn suggestions, his wife was getting suspicious. Tried logging in and it was hacked and stolen. Called FB and had someone actually helped. Got new creds to log in, deleted everything and canceled it.
    My new account is totally private, has a stupid long password that I typed blindfolded, and I have no friends. Gets about as much use as the one that got hacked, but I do change the password routinely.

    I'm trying to talk my kids into deleting theirs. I see no benefit but I'm old and, as most kids like to say, a boomer....which I'm technically not. I'm a Gen Xer.

    I deleted my fb almost 10 years ago. Then come to find out somehow it got reactivated and hacked by someone trying to sell overseas junk. I tried and tried to get it deleted again but got no where. Think it must have just got reported enough to get deleted. This year I made a fake account, with zero friends. That I use just so I can use marketplace, since not many people use Craigslist anymore
