INTRO: The Social media giant, Facebook, is bringing new features regularly during this timeline, so here’s a new feature to make it easier for users to delete old posts on their profiles of Facebook.

This feature will allow you to quickly find posts you want to delete on your timeline. You can also use filters like a range of dates, or specific people. Clearly it seems like, the company wants to make it easier to get rid of all the old embarrassing posts, or posts about an ex or anything else related to your old pictures or uploads.

Reflect Your Current Presence In Profile

With the new feature, you will now be able to move posts you don’t want on your profile to the trash. These will be removed from public viewing immediately. However, they will only be permanently deleted after 30 days. If you all needed it, you can manually delete all of them before the 30 day grace period as well.

The feature is available now on Facebook Lite and is also rolling out on Facebook’s mobile apps right now. While I have it on the Facebook app on my iPhone, it’s possible that you may have to wait for a bit before it becomes available to you.
