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

delete post option not in facebook
As Facebook enjoys an unchallenged position in the world of social networks, it keeps trying out new features in its web interface and mobile without any fear of losing the user base. Who can forget the company’s act of removing Messenger from the mobile apps and pushing it down the throat of users as a separate app!

In a series of posts on Reddit and Twitter, Facebook users have complained that they are unable to delete 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.

We’ll share an update in future when Facebook has a clarification.

There’s a possibility that it could be some temporary bug that’s affecting users. Are you witnessing this issue? Don’t forget to share your views and become a part of the discussion.
