Facebook planning to add this WhatsApp feature after backlash on CEO Mark Zuckerberg's mail

Facebook planning to add this WhatsApp feature after backlash on CEO Mark Zuckerberg's mail

There seems to be no end to Facebook's woes. However, the latest controversy over the social networking giant retracting CEO Mark Zuckerberg's messages from recipients' inboxes may mean 'good news' for Facebook users. As the company may reportedly soon introduce the 'unsend' button, similar to the one in the instant messaging app WhatsApp, in Facebook Messenger as well. The new feature is likely to work the same way as it works in Facebook-owned WhatsApp. This means it will allow users to recall sent messages.

Facebook told TechCrunch in a statement, “We have discussed this feature several times. And people using our secret message feature in the encrypted version of Messenger have the ability to set a timer — and have their messages automatically deleted. We will now be making a broader delete message feature available. This may take some time. And until this feature is ready, we will no longer be deleting any executives’ messages. We should have done this sooner — and we’re sorry that we did not.”

Earlier this week, Facebook came in another eye of storm after a report in TechCrunch that said that the company removed some old Zuckerberg's messages from recipient's inboxes. Quoting sources, the report said, "...old Facebook messages they received from Zuckerberg have disappeared from their Facebook inboxes, while their own replies to him conspicuously remain.

Explaining the disappearance of messages, Facebook had told TechCrunch in a statement that this was done for corporate security. "After Sony Pictures’ emails were hacked in 2014 we made a number of changes to protect our executives’ communications. These included limiting the retention period for Mark’s messages in Messenger. We did so in full compliance with our legal obligations to preserve messages,” read the statement.

The company also said that till the 'Unsend' feature is rolled out for everyone, Facebook will not be retracting any more of CEO Zuckerberg's messages.

Facebook is facing one of the biggest scandal in its corporate history over Cambridge Analytica data breach. The scandal has seen the company's market valuation tumble by billions. It recently said that the data of some 87 million users was improperly used in the breach. The number is higher than what was earlier claimed.
