Facebook turns 15 and continues to grow

Facebook messenger delete

TL;DR Facebook is releasing a feature through which users can delete messages sent through Messenger.

It seems Facebook is handling the removal of messages from its servers just right, but it's nearly comical that it won't just give everyone the option to delete their own communications any time they like.

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'".

Users can delete the message just on their end or "for everyone".

People keen to use the service will need to act fast as the message must be deleted within 10 minutes of sending.

Remember previous year when Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg purged some of his messages from various Messenger conversations?

Doing the former will only remove it from your view, while selecting the latter will delete the message from the chat entirely.

The company says the new ability is based on the Mark Zuckerberg power, 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".

Just recently, the social networking app was criticized for paying minors to access their phone data, the Deseret News reported.

A placeholder message will let the recipients of the original message know you removed a message in place of where the message originally appeared.

"After Sony Pictures' emails were hacked in 2014 we made a number of changes to protect our executives' communications", a Facebook representative told TechCrunch around the time of the hack.

But despite such scrutiny the company continues to grow - its latest financial results showed revenue up 30% and profits up 61% on this time previous year.

The Facebook announcement states that this new feature launches today!
