Facebook has finally delivered. If there was content you posted years and years ago that is, for a lack of a better word “cringe”. Now you can delete it through Manage Activity.
Whether you’re entering the job market after college or moving on from an old relationship, we know things change in people’s lives, and we want to make it easy for you to curate your presence on Facebook to more accurately reflect who you are today. That’s why we’re launching Manage Activity to help you archive or trash old posts, all in one place.Facebook
I can’t say it’s going to be a comfortable experience for some, myself included to go through the archives of the things posted in my late teens. It is going to be harrowing.
“The archive feature is for content you no longer want others to see on Facebook, but that you still want to keep for yourself. For example, you could archive a post you made when you were in high school that you still find amusing but that you’d rather not be seen by anyone else on Facebook.”Facebook
This is refreshing. There are things that won’t make sense to anyone who sees them now. Some things could have been genuinely harmless or just silly. Those things may be misunderstood today. Having the option to have a place to keep those memories is very nice of Facebook.
And to make it simpler to manage lots of posts at once, Manage Activity lets you view and manage your posts in bulk. We’ve also developed filters to help you sort and find what you’re looking for, like posts with specific people or from a specific date range.”Facebook
Manage Activity will launch first on mobile and Facebook Lite, and will be available on desktop in the future. (Updated on June 2, 2020 at 1:52PM PT to clarify that Manage Activity is available on Facebook Lite today.) We’ll continue building new functionality for this tool to ensure it meets people’s needs to manage their digital footprint on Facebook.Facebook.
