Facebook will give you 10 minutes to unsend that embarrassing message

Facebook will give you 10 minutes to unsend that embarrassing message”

Maybe it was because you included a typo in it, or maybe it's far worse.

Well don't worry, because Mark Zuckerberg has come to the rescue. In my experience, you know pretty quickly whether you've sent a message to the wrong person (or the wrong message to the right person) most of the time.

If you're too drunk to realize you're sending messages to someone late at night, you're probably too drunk to remember you have 10 minutes to delete them.

Facebook have given no indication when this update will be rolled out, with the release notes simply saying: "Coming soon". Said something embarrassing? Don't worry, you can unsend that Facebook message, but you better be fast!

Users may now delete messages on the Messenger app but it only reflects on the sender's end and remains on the recipient's thread. Gmail allows users the time intervals of 5, 10, 20, and 30 seconds to take back that drunk email you never should have sent in the first place.

Facebook is finally following suit and adding the feature to its Messenger app.

Have you ever sent a message and immediately regretted it?

Facebook Messenger for iOS states that the ability to "unsend" messages will be coming soon the application.
