    Are you serious? they own the database and they can and probably are saving every single click made on their site.

    FB doesn't really "delete" anything. Sure, the information may no longer appear on the site or in a search but rest assured it has been saved to a backup database. Not only do they save all the information but they can and will cooperate with "other agencies" should the information ever need to be accessed. While this doesn't affect most of us because we are not using the site to conduct highly immoral activity, it is interesting to know. Why are you concerned about whether or not FB knows that you were at some point the admin of a page?

    Yes, FB does not delete any page. They just make it invisible for everybody, like when you set your Fanpage 'unpublished', it's visible only for you, while others redirect them to the news feed. If FB really deletes pages, it would show 'The requested page could not be found' when you follow the link, and not redirecting the page's owner to the news feed. ;).

    YouTube videos never get deleted too when they're claimed as copyrighted. They're just invisible.

    Btw, I think the creator cannot remove himself from admin. In this case, he must delete the whole page, am I right ?

    You're right. The creator can't actually remove himself. But he can be removed if another admin deletes him from the admin list.

    The creator can't leave, he must delete the page. I already mentioned that in my older posts.
