Have you ever experienced a time when you had to check your Facebook timeline to see if there were any old posts that you no longer want? If you did, you know that it isn’t a pleasant thing to do and very time-consuming. Yesterday, Facebook launched a new feature called Manage Activity that will make it easier for users to curate their Facebook presence.
Whether you’re entering the job market after college or moving on from an old relationship, we know things change in people’s lives, and we want to make it easy for you to curate your presence on Facebook to more accurately reflect who you are today. That’s why we’re launching Manage Activity to help you archive or trash old posts, all in one place.
Check out this video to learn more about Manage Activity and see how it works.
So aside from deleting old posts, Manage Activity also has an Archive feature that allows users to keep stuff away from public view but still accessible for themselves. For example, you posted something about your high school crush. It’s something you find amusing and holds a special memory in your heart but something that you’d rather not share with publicly any longer.
Another Manage Activity feature is being able to put posts you no longer want to the Trash. It will stay there for 30 days and gives you the option to either delete it permanently or restore it.
If you ask me, the best feature that Manage Activity has to offer would be the ability to view and manage posts in bulk. This means you don’t have to go over your posts one-by-one which saves you a lot of time. Aside from that, you can also make use of filters to make your searches faster and more specific.
Manage Activity will initially be available only for mobile and eventually on desktop in the near future. If you want to try it out now, the feature is already available on Facebook Lite.
Did anyone try or look forward to trying out the Manage Activity feature? Do you think this is useful or not? Please share your thoughts by leaving a comment below.
