San Francisco, April 7: Battered by media reports that it “secretly” deleted CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s posts from his recipients’ inboxes, Facebook is now planning to make its “Unsend” feature available to its over two billion users in coming months. According to a report in technology website Tech Crunch on Saturday, unless the “Unsend” feature is released for everyone, Facebook will not unsend or retract any more of Zuckerberg’s messages.
Currently, users can only delete messages from their own inboxes which will still show up in the recipient’s thread. There appears to be no “retention period” for normal users’ messages. Facebook’s terms of service don’t give the right to remove content from users’ accounts unless it violates the company’s community standards. (IANS)
