Facebook Messenger Will Now Let You Delete Messages

Martin Lewis announcement

End users will be unable to see the difference between a message sent on Instagram and one sent on Facebook Messenger as the function would exist only on the front-end for business page mangers.

When contacted, Facebook representatives told us Australians should have access to the unsend button "over the next few days".

According to Facebook's statement, in order to delete an already sent message, "simply tap on the message you want to remove and select the option to 'Remove for Everyone'". "Starting today, we are launching a feature where you can easily remove your message on Messenger". You can do this operation only within 10 minutes of sending the message. And, just like in WhatsApp, if you decide to remove a message for everyone, it will be replaced with a note that you have deleted a message. Perhaps you're a perfectionist who cringes every time you send a message with a typo?

Speaking to The Verge, Facebook said the new feature was based on Zuckerberg's one but it underwent "some improvements to provide broader functionality to people using Messenger".

Tapping the Remove option will then offer two options: "Remove for Everyone" and "Remove for You". Instead, we're limited by a timer of 10 minutes that starts ticking down the moment the offending message is originally sent.

Facebook Messenger will also let you remove messages for yourself. Once "removed", the message will not reappear in the draft space.

Users proclaimed that Facebook is misusing its power. However, Facebook is still running its research app on Android phones, encouraging teenagers and users of ages between 15 and 35 to sell their privacy for a fixed charge per month. The practices introduced by social media networks such as the News Feed have combined communities and made a better impact on society.

RANDI Zuckerberg was brought in by her brother to work at Facebook in 2004 when the fledgling start-up had just 50 employees.
