Facebook will introduce an "unsend" option, after backlash about Zuckerberg's disappearing messages

When a problem crops up at Facebook and the person taking

Facebook has been secretly deleting some messages CEO Mark Zuckerberg sent through its Messenger application, an option that hasn't been available to most of the social network's 2.2 billion users.

"Today's updates are created to prevent future abuse in elections", the Facebook executives Rob Goldman and Alex Himel said in a blogpost, "and to help ensure you have the information that you need to assess political and issue ads, as well as content on pages".

According to TechCrunch, Facebook plans to launch an "unsend" feature, in several months and has already been considering how to build the product.

Zuckerberg not only enabled the Russians to help Trump's campaign to depress the Black vote, but he directed his staff to "sit side by side" with their Russian cohorts to teach them how to use Facebook's open-ended platform to poison the election with hate messages that served to rile up white nationalists, alt-right devotees, NRA activists and many others on the extreme right. By announcing the feature is coming to all users it seems like an attempt to make Zuckerberg appear as a beta tester of the feature to some.

Facebook on Friday announced new moves it says will help combat foreign interference in United States elections, the New York Times reports. 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. This may take some time.

Facebook's subsidiary and instant messaging platform WhatsApp rolled out a similar feature called "Delete for everyone" in November 2017. But after downloading the Facebook archive data and searching for the same message, users reported that they couldn't find the message from Zuckerberg and reported them as missing. "We should have done this sooner - and we're sorry that we did not", the spokesperson added. Facebook confirmed the retractions, claiming it was done for the company's security, following the Sony email hack in 2014.

"There's the good cases for sharing, and I think we were very idealistic and not rigorous enough", she said. These included limiting the retention period for Mark's messages in Messenger.

According to a report by Engadget, users have had received messages from CEO Zuckerberg previously, as early as 2010. Zuckerberg also expressed his support for the Honest Ads Act bill now working its way through the Senate-despite Facebook having previously lobbied against it. Facebook's chief technology officer, Mike Schroepfer, said in a blog post published on Wednesday that given the scale and sophistication of the activity they have seen, they believe most people on Facebook could have had their public profile scraped in this way due to which they have now disabled that feature.
