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 Facebookâ€™s mobile apps first.
Facebook says that, the feature is meant â€œto make it easy for you to curate your presence on Facebook to more accurately reflect who you are today.â€Â As an example, it suggests that someone might want to delete old content when theyâ€™re about to start working full time after college or remove posts that remind them of an old relationship.
Users can head into theirÂ Activity LogÂ to find the new tool.Â Manage ActivityÂ lets users seek out posts under a certain category, certain dates, or with certain people tagged â€” useful if youâ€™d rather not keep a former relationship in sight of everyone.
You can then select whether toÂ archive (hide)Â orÂ trash (delete) those old posts. Archiving removes a post from a personâ€™s timeline, but it can still be seen through the Archive tab of theÂ 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.
