Facebook Messenger Will Soon Let You 'Unsend' Messages Just Like Mark Zuckerberg

Zuckerberg shoots down conspiracy theory that Facebook taps your microphone Didn't Get The Notification? Here's Another Way To Check Whether Your Facebook Data Was Shared With Cambridge Analytica

Facebook had said that executives' messages were deleted in the name of "corporate security", but now the social network has once again been forced to apologize to users. Unlike Zuck, the average Facebook user does not have a limited retention period for their messages. "AggregateIQ works in full compliance within all legal and regulatory requirements in all jurisdictions where it operates". The thing is, Zuckerberg and Facebook executives deleted messages from regular, private conversations with users, so some are uneasy that they were deleted without notice or discretion. "Instead, the focus would be on producing general insights that would help medical professionals take social connectedness into account as they develop treatment or intervention programmes for their patients", a Facebook spokesperson was quoted as saying.

"As we find more Cambridge Analyticas, we're going to find a comprehensive way to put them out and make sure people see them", Sandberg told BuzzFeed in an interview published Thursday, referring to efforts to publicize problems.

Facebook Messenger now offers a Secret Conversation mode where users can set a timer on when messages will be destroyed. Until the Unsend feature is released for everyone, Facebook says it won't unsend or retract any more of Zuckerberg's messages.

In other words, not even Mr Zuckerberg will be able to delete his messages until everyone else can too.

"These steps by themselves won't stop all people trying to game the system", the Facebook chief said. To most people, this seemed like a power used exclusively to remove damaging evidence, but Facebook is claiming they have been working on this feature for all users.

Facebook Messenger wouldn't be the first messaging app to allow you to remove your past messages.

Facebook has revealed there were South African users whose data was obtained by Cambridge Analytica.

The sent messages were deleted from inboxes without the knowledge of recipients, a tactic that the firm admitted it had been using since 2014. And until this feature is ready, we will no longer be deleting any executives' messages. "Mark is really sorry for that, and what we're doing now is taking really firm action".
