Facebook doesn’t like users deleting messages? Don’t believe me? Go on, try deleting one. Users have to go through a minimum of 5 steps to simply delete a message. More, if they want to delete multiple messages.
In the message thread view, Facebook provides users with only two options: Mark as Read/Unread and Archive, no delete option here. If you wanted to permanently delete a message, you have to open it first, click on the Action button, select Delete Messages from the dropdown list, then you have to choose a message by checking its corresponding box. After all this when you hit delete, you again get a dialog asking you to confirm your actions. Seriously, who does all this unknowingly? If you want a simpler way, give Facebook Fast Delete Messages a try.
Facebook Fast Delete Messages is a Chrome extension that simplifies Facebook message deletion task to a simple one-click process. Once you install it, you will see two new options in Messages: Delete All button and a small red ‘x’ to delete individual message.
Facebook Fast Delete Messages is not an extension that you would need on a daily basis, but is a handy one to have on occasional cleanups. It works wherever Chrome does.
