Facebook Removes Option To Delete Post From Desktop Website: Bug Or Feature?

SHARE

What happens on Facebook might just stay on Facebook – literally.

In a series of posts on Reddit and Twitter, Facebook users have complained that they are unable to erase their posts from the desktop version of the website. On the other hand, many others are still having the delete post option in their profiles. So, what’s happening here?

It could be possible that Facebook is testing an upcoming change; it could be a bug as well. Contrary to the assumption that Facebook is completely removing the delete posts option, it was found hidden in the Activity Log section of the website.

But, why would Facebook even test such a feature? Well, Facebook uses the posts of users for improving its advertising algorithms. They are also used for Memories post. As per VentureBeat, they could also be a trick to force users to use the mobile app more often.
