Facebook has been around for a very long time, and there’s a good chance a lot of us have been using it for years and over the years, posted a ton of posts, some of which we probably wish we didn’t. Now you can go back and delete these messages one by one, which can be an incredibly long and tedious process.
Fortunately, Facebook seems to understand that some of us want to delete our posts in bulk and not too long ago there was a new tool that allows us to do this. So, if you want to erase parts of your Facebook history, it’s actually a very simple process, so here’s how you can do it.
- Launch the Facebook app on your phone
- Go to your profile, tap the three-dot menu
- Go to Activity log> Manage activity> Select ” Your messages “
- Tap the checkbox to mark the messages you want to archive or delete
- Push the button Basket to delete messages
With this method, you won’t have to scroll through your messages one by one and delete them individually. It will probably take way too long and it’s a much faster way to clean up your Facebook profile without having to resort to any third-party apps, and could also be an alternative to deleting your Facebook account entirely.
We should also point out that if you realize that you may have deleted a post by accident or change your mind and want to undelete a post, Facebook actually keeps your deleted posts in the Trash for 30 days before. they won’t be deleted permanently, so you’ll still have a little time to change your mind.
Additionally, this method is only available through the Facebook app for iOS and Android. The desktop version of Facebook doesn’t have the ability to delete mass posts, so that’s something to note as well.
