Facebook is Giving Us the Messenger Feature We've Always Needed

Confirmation of apps and websites to be removed

To prevent sustained backlash, Facebook quickly announced that an "unsend" feature would roll out to all the users in the next several months.

Every advertiser who wants to run a political or issue ad on Facebook must have their identity and location verified, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said in a post Friday.

The reason behind using this feature was to delete embarrassing messages from going viral around. "This may take some time", he said.

While you can only delete messages in your inbox, Facebook has admitted that its executives have gotten special treatment allowing them to remove their own sent messages from others' inboxes. Further, the spokesperson said that they should have done this sooner and they are sorry that they did not.

According to a TechCrunch report on Friday, "three sources confirm that old Facebook messages they received from Zuckerberg have disappeared from their Facebook inboxes, while their own replies to him conspicuously remain".


But as the others have indicated, it is yet fairly simple to get a Facebook users' phone number through other means, like public groups, many of which were made when someone lost their phone or upgraded to a new one and required to gather the numbers of their family and friends.

The self-destructing feature was added to respond back to the Sony Pictures hack in 2014 that used their employees' personal information, and a few unreleased films, Facebook said in a statement. These included limiting the retention period for Mark's messages in Messenger.

At least 59,777 South African users were potentially impacted by the Facebook, Cambridge Analityica data breach. "AggregateIQ works in full compliance within all legal and regulatory requirements in all jurisdictions where it operates". Looking into the condition, the social media service provide has become very careful in regards to it's users.

Former Cambridge Analytica Director of Research Christopher Wylie - who blew the whistle on the company's possession of millions of Facebook users' data - told the British Parliament that AggregateIQ helped Cambridge Analytica target British voters on behalf of the Brexit Vote Leave campaign.
