Facebook has announced a brand new feature called 'Manage Activity', which is designed to help you archive or trash old posts all in one place.
In a press release today Facebook stated:
You can of course already hide/delete Facebook posts, the new feature is designed to let you target more than one post from a single location to allow for bulk deletion.
The new feature also lets you move posts to the trash, where they will remain for 30 days before being deleted. You can choose to manually delete them or to restore them before them. There are also features to let you view and manage posts in bulk, as well as filters to help you target posts with specific people in them, or from a specific time frame. As noted above, it could be used, amongst other things, to remove all posts about a past relationship, or from a certain time at college.
The feature is coming to mobile first, then desktop and Facebook Lite "in the future."
