Facebook Introduces Feature That Helps You Mass Delete Or Hide Old Posts

There are some times the need to bringing down some posts becomes necessary due to a reason best known to you or you just want to sanitize your page, and all you were able to do delete was to start delete one after the other and that could take you almost forever. Well, that has changed now as Facebook has now introduced a new tool that can help you mass delete those posts.

Facebook has announced a new feature called Manage Activity that allows users delete their old posts. It can be used to delete individual posts or in bulk, and Facebook says it will offer filtering options to help find posts with specific people in them or in a certain time range. The feature will come to Facebook’s mobile apps first.

Facebook New Feature That Helps Mass Delete Old posts

Facebook says that, the feature is meant “to make it easy for you to curate your presence on Facebook to more accurately reflect who you are today.” As an example, it suggests that someone might want to delete old content when they’re about to start working full time after college or remove posts that remind them of an old relationship.

Users can head into their Activity Log to find the new tool. Manage Activity lets users seek out posts under a certain category, certain dates, or with certain people tagged — useful if you’d rather not keep a former relationship in sight of everyone.

You can then select whether to archive (hide) or trash (delete) those old posts. Archiving removes a post from a person’s timeline, but it can still be seen through the Archive tab of the Activity Log. Trashing a post, much like the recycle bin on your computer, holds a post in the trash can for up to 30 days before it is deleted entirely from the account.
