Facebook is rolling out a new feature that will allow those who want to do so to easily clean up their accounts,in particular, the tool will make it possible to delete or archive very old publications.

A tool to “Manage Activity” on Facebook

Some people have been on Facebook for (too) long in 2020 and deleting this shameful publication from a few years ago is a very complicated exercise.

This is why Facebook is introducing the “Manage Operation” app, a new tool that allows you to search your publications by date and then quickly find all the articles published during a given time.

The functionality thus makes it possible to massively delete old publications, or else to archive these, to allow the user to republish them later, if he wishes.

Note that a deleted publication will be placed in a trash for 30 days, before being definitively deleted by the social network.

“Whether you’re entering the job market after college or leaving an old relationship, we know that things are changing in people’s lives, and we want to help you organize your Facebook presence to more accurately reflect who you are. are today, “ says the social network.

First on mobiles, then on the web

Obviously, as you can do with your emails, the tool allows you to delete / archive several publications at once, directly from the “Personal History” option. The filter system provides quick access to the desired period.

The whole is accessible from the Facebook application for iOS and Android , and will soon arrive on the web version, as well as on Facebook Lite.
