Recently, TechCrunch reported that Facebook has secretly been deleting messages on Facebook Messenger sent by Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg. The social giant added that they will be adding “Unsend” feature soon for all the Facebook users, that somehow will be similar to that of WhatsApp messenger’s unsend feature which was introduced last year.
Facebook Messenger is currently having a ‘secret conversation’ mode which notifies every user in that conversation that after some time the messages sent will be deleted.
The news about the ‘Unsend’ feature for the Messenger came after the news that Facebook has deleted old messages sent by Mark Zuckerberg via Messenger to other users’ inboxes and threads.
The move or the so called feature in the season of fiasco has been criticized heavily and earned the remark of potential breach of trust, because they launched the feature and deleted messages of Mark Zuckerberg when the company is already receiving a lot of bad press due to the data-breach. The investigation is running for the Cambridge Analytica scam but this move of the ‘not-so’ social giant has given indication that something is not correct, otherwise what would have been the reason of doing so.
“We have discussed this feature several time,” a Facebook spokesperson told The Verge in a statement. “We will now be making a broader delete message feature available. This may take some time. And until this feature is ready, we will no longer be deleting any executives’ messages. We should have done this sooner — and we’re sorry that we did not.”
