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

Russell Knight | 09 April, 2018, 06:25

While we're happy that we won't have to live with our future messaging mistakes, like many Messenger users, we're also wondering why it took this long when Zuckerberg and the company executives have had it for some time now.

Several Wall Street analysts said the falls presented a good opportunity to buy into the social network's previously high-flying shares, although they cautioned that much will still depend on Zuckerberg's testimony to Congress next week.

Facebook initially defended the practice by saying it was a response to the embarrassing 2014 hacking of the email accounts of senior Sony Pictures executives, allegedly conducted by North Korean operatives.

Facebook will hire "thousands" of new workers to make sure pages and advertisers are verified by the time election season rolls around, he added.

Well, that wish might soon be a reality on Facebook Messenger with the platform promising to make an "unsend" feature available to all users. "This may take some time", a Facebook spokesperson told Bloomberg.

Sandberg expressed her full support for Zuckerberg.

The previous estimate of more than 50 million Facebook users affected by the data leak came from two newspapers, the New York Times and London's Observer, based on their investigations of Cambridge Analytica.

Cambridge Analytica has said that it engaged Kogan "in good faith" to collect Facebook data in a manner similar to how other third-party app developers have harvested personal information.

The news comes as Facebook VP Sheryl Sandberg said the company is still unable to confirm what happened to the data obtained by Cambridge Analytica, the data analytics firm hired by the Trump presidential campaign, because it needs to wait until the United Kingdom information commissioner completes an investigation.

"That's why this week we shut down a number of use cases in other areas - in groups, in pages, in events - because those are other places where we haven't necessarily found problems, but we think that we should be more protective of people's data", she told NPR. There are also concerns that thousands of Australians were caught in the data drag net.

Cambridge Analytica improperly gained access to the data of millions of Facebook users without their permission, using it to target campaign material at American voters. Next to it we will show "paid for by" information.

The company would not disclose any further details about the feature to Quartz.

Many were rattled to find years worth of private texts traded on the platform's Messenger feature, code for recognizing faces in photographs, and contact information that people thought was tucked away on their cell phones.
