These are the 4 explanations for forgetting
As for deleting accounts, it can be done; if you delete your account and wait the 30 or 60 days they tell you you have to resuscitate the account and recover your files from their server's cache, then it will all be gone, most likely purged from their system s ; I am talking posts, photographs, videos, and other details kept for you every time you signed in. I think what happens as well is that your comments on other people's posts remain in tact, however, the profile picture restores to the default white silhouette on a light blue background, and if someone tries to access your account by clicking on your name in that comment, facebook tells you that you have reached a page that no longer exists.
I only meant to suggest deletions are just the beginning of the impermanence of FB.

I completely agree with you. The "I" that makes judgements about past folly is not the same "I" that was foolish at that time. The universe is a river and we are rivers flowing within it. Thus the wonderful comment at the end about being more tolerant - of others as well as our past and present "selves".
Forgetting your past is always a better thing I believe. When you forget about past whatever that happened in past you just make peace on that and try to make your present better then eventually it will be the surety of your perfect future. It can save you from number of health issues as well.

Forgetting The Past Sayings and Quotes
What to Look for in a Potential Spouse. When I'm with these people I, like the kids, feel that if this is what it means to be a grown-up, then I don't ever want to be one. No one tires of dreaming, because to dream is to forget, and forgetting does not weigh on us, it is a dreamless sleep throughout which we remain awake. In dreams I have achieved everything. Ideally, it would be a straight path forward——we'd always know where we were going, we'd always be able to move on and leave everything else behind.
There would be nothing but the present and the future.
Instead, we always find ourselves where we started. When we try to move ahead, we end up taking a step back. We carry everything with us, the weight exhausting us until we want to collapse and give up. We forget things we try to remember.
We remember things we'd rather forget. The most frightening thing about memory is that it leaves no choice. It has mastered an incomprehensible art of forgetting. It erases, it smudges, it fills in blank spaces with details that don't exist. But however we remember it——or choose to remember it——the past is the foundation that holds our lives in place. Without its support, we'd have nothing for guidance. We spend so much time focused on what lies ahead, when what has fallen behind is just as important. What defines us isn't where we're going, but where we've been. Although there are places and people we will never see again, and although we move on and let them go, they remain a part of who we are.
There are things that will never change, things we will carry along with us always. But as we venture into the murky future, we must find our strength by learning to leave things behind.

I am exhausted from the effort to forget There are things that have to be forgotten if you want to go on living. Both are false faiths. In reality the opposite is true: everything will be forgotten and nothing will be redressed. The task of obtaining redress by vengeance or by forgiveness will be taken over by forgetting.
No one will redress the wrongs that have been done, but all wrongs will be forgotten.
