It’s been a bit of a shitty time as of late for Mark Zuckerberg, despite still being astoundingly wealthy and powerful. He’s been copping an earful for the teeny tiny mistake of selling everyone’s data and now it looks like he’s fucked up again.
Basically, Facebook users that have spoken to Zuck checked their inbox to find that his side of the conversation wasn’t there, leading a bunch of people to question why exactly he’s been deleting messages and if it’s a signifier to something else.
Now, Facebook is saying that Marky Mark was simply a tester for a feature that they were “planning” on rolling out, which sounds like complete and utter bullshit.
Cop a load of their excuse for it:
“We have discussed this feature several times. And people using our secret message feature in the encrypted version of Messenger have the ability to set a timer — and have their messages automatically deleted.
“We will now be making a broader delete message feature available. This may take some time. And until this feature is ready, we will no longer be deleting any executives’ messages. We should have done this sooner — and we’re sorry that we did not.”
As they say, the feature will take some time to complete, probably because they’re busy putting out the dumpster fire at Facebook HQ rn.
