Facebook New Feature:
There looks to be no end to Facebook‘s sorrows. However, the latest debate over the social media giant retracting CEO Zuckerberg’s messages from recipients inboxes may mean ‘good news’ for Facebook peoples. As the company may reportedly early offer the ‘Unsend’ button, related to the one in the WhatsApp, in Facebook Messenger as well. The new feature is likely to work the similar way as it operates in Facebook-owned WhatsApp. This means it will support peoples to recall sent messages.
The company told a popular blog in a statement, “We have discussed this sometimes. And users using our secret message feature in the encrypted version of Messenger. It has the ability to fix a timer and have their messages auto removed. We will now be offering a broader delete message feature available. This may take some time. And until this feature is available, we will no longer be removing any executives’ messages. We should have done this sooner and we’re sorry that we did not.”
Earlier this week, the company came in another eye of the storm after a report in a blog that said that the company deleted some old Mark Zuckerberg’s messages from recipient’s inboxes. Quoting sources, the report said, “…old Facebook messages they received from Mark Zuckerberg have gone from their Facebook inboxes, while their own replies to him conspicuously remain.”
“After Sony Pictures’ a hack in 2014, we created a number of changes to guard our executive’s communications. These included limiting the retention period for Zuckerberg’s messages in Messenger. We did so in complete agreement with our legal obligations to preserve messages,” read the statement.
The company will not recover any more of CEO Mark’s messages. However, the company is facing one of the hugest scandals in its corporate history over Cambridge Analytica data breach. The scandal also has observed the company’s market valuation tumble by billions. It recently said that the information of some eighty-seven million peoples was improperly used in the breach. The number is higher than what was earlier claimed.
