Now you can unsend messages in Facebook Messenger

Amarillo Globe-News: Be vigilant of internet use — someone's always watching

Messenger users do have more power to delete messages sent in "secret conversations", the company's branding for its end-to-end encrypted chats.

"You´re not the only one!"

"Starting today, we are launching a feature where you can easily remove your message on Messenger - whether it's to one person or a group", it said.

Writing on the social network, Zuckerberg celebrated Facebook's rise from his college dorm room to a service used by more than 2.7 billion people.

Something that is often overlooked is obesity (3% and increasing) and its connection to cancer . Multiple initiatives run on World Cancer Day to show support for those affected by cancer .

The feature first appeared last April after Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg was discovered to have deleted messages he had previously sent.

You'll have to be quick - you've got just 10 minutes after the message has been sent to remove it.

In order to use the new feature, your phone will need to be running the latest version of iOS or Android software, Facebook said.

The option replaces the previous "Delete" button which would confusingly only remove the offending message from your screen but wouldn't recall it for everyone else.

Zuckerberg has acknowledged that Facebook needs to do more to restore trust, and ferret out misinformation and abuse, and on Monday repeated his pledge to spend more "on safety and security".

Facebook on Tuesday added a Messenger feature for anyone who has fired off a comment they regretted - a way to take it back.

To do this, tap on the message you'd like to retract and and select 'Remove for Everyone'.

Hartley said Marks' and Pease's son was placed into protective custody in 2009 and he doesn't know the son's current location. Authorities in Texas say an MMA fighter facing three "pending murder charges" has escaped from a private prisoner transport.

"Messenger users typically delete messages for themselves within a minute of sending it, so Messenger's time limit of ten minutes should give people ample time to remove their message". The news has also been confirmed by the company. Just like WhatsApp, you are given an option to either delete a message for yourself or for everyone.
