    For anyone who wants to shut down their account, however, Facebook offers some advice here:

    Basically you need to fill out this form:

    Good luck!

    Why not just change the information in your existing account? Clicking on your name in the upper-right corner will bring you to your info page. Your school can be changed in the Work and Education block and you can change your birthday by clicking on the Edit button in the Basic Information block.
