Early Facebook investor says platform preys on "weakest elements of our psychology"

"You´re not the only one!"

Facebook just announced a new feature which allows users to delete messages within a limited amount of time, after Whatsapp introduced this function back in 2017.

The feature is also available when using Messenger via Facebook's website. As The Verge report, last April we learnt that CEO Mark Zuckerberg can delete messages.

For up to 10 minutes after a Facebook message is sent users will have the option to delete that message from the conversation. To do this users need only to tap the message once and select “Remove for Everyone.”

"Simply tap on the message you want to remove and select the option to "Remove for Everyone." explains Messenger product manager Anna Iskikian". Facebook reportedly said it would not have Zuckerberg delete messages he sent until the feature was publicly launched.

For those who are wondering how it will work; essentially, long-pressing a sent text will present two options: Remove for Everyone and Remove for You. Although in the more recent history, Facebook has been plagued with controversies over the misuse and mishandling of user data through its platform.

Facebook has started rolling out a new feature giving users the ability to delete sent messages from its Messenger service.

76ers Bound for Finals After Swinging Six-Player Trade With Clippers?
As the National Basketball Association trade deadline approaches, there is finally a blockbuster deal done in Los Angeles. The Pistons and Bucks are reportedly "finalising" the trade ahead of Thursday's (Friday AEDT) deadline.

When asked about it, Facebook confirmed Zuckerberg's messages expired over time, mainly for increased security measures after the 2014 Sony Pictures email hacks. "The tool now only lets businesses control messages coming from Facebook Messenger".

Now, you can delete it for everyone, but there's a slight catch: you have to do it within ten minutes of sending it. You'll then be prompted to either "remove for everyone or "remove for you".

After its discovery, Facebook pledged to make a version of the feature available to all.

In the initial iteration (above), Instagram messages were not included, only comments - this new update would merge the messaging functionality of both, streamlining management and enabling improved communication flow.
