“Facebook compared to the others, eliminates the messages sent in full”
Facebook Messenger currently gives you a tolerance of 10 minutes to delete a message, to do it you just have to keep pressing on the message you want to delete, a message that says “Remove for everyone” will appear. Now they have applied the same thing, but in this opportunity, there are two messages “Remove for everyone” and “Remove for you”.
The advantage of this option is that, when using the first option, the message in question will be completely erased for both the sender and receiver, that you must use this option within 10 minutes after pressing the option ” Send”. Compared to WhatsApp is that every time you delete a message does not apply completely, here is this message “You deleted this message.”
