You can now delete Facebook messages you might regret sending

Facebook is letting you unsend messages

This means if you accidentally (or drunkenly) send a regrettable message to someone, you can delete without them seeing it.

"You´re not the only one!"

The remove message feature is available for Facebook Messenger users around the world on the latest versions of iOS and Android.

The Facebook CEO recounted in the note his "dorm room decision" to launch "a simple website organized around people", which has now grown into a global giant with more than 2 billion active users.

To use the feature, tap and hold on a message you sent, then select "Remove.' From there, users will have the option to 'Remove for You" or 'Remove for Everyone'. A new unsend feature is now rolling out to Facebook Messenger globally.

Ex-Real Madrid chief Mijatovic: We're all p***ed off with Bale
The club has yet to release a full medical report on the injury, and he didn't practice with his teammates on Monday. Real Madrid got off to a flawless start in the game, opening the scoring after just six minutes.

A placeholder message will let the recipients of the original message know you removed a message in place of where the message originally appeared.

So say goodbye to those embarrassing messages you send your ex at 4am, or those incriminating photos you accidental sent to the family group chat instead of to your friends - phew.

Participants in a group conversation receive a message saying "This message was deleted" to alert them of the change. Last year, Facebook said a similar feature would be made available to everyone. Users have to switch to "Secret Conversation" mode on Messenger to attain some measure of security, and Instagram doesn't have any "secure" messaging option. However, at least for now, you'll have only a ten-minute window to reconsider before your text becomes a part of the permanent record.

Facebook told the publication that it was doing it to protect communications of their executives and for this, it limited the retention period for Mark's messages in Messenger. When that option is chosen, the message will be removed for you, but not for anybody else in the chat.
