Save Yourself From Facebook Message Regret

It happens to all of us: hitting send on a message when we reeeally shouldn't have. Maybe it was too late to be thinking rationally. Maybe there were emotions running hot. Maybe your cat wanted attention and bumped your hand while you were holding your phone. There's that moment of panic when you wish with all your heart for an unsend option.

Well hey guess what? Facebook is giving you one. It's actually been around for a while, but only Mark Zuckerberg himself got to take advantage. After the world got wind of that, FB admitted they'd been working on the ability to delete sent messages - and that maybe they shouldn't have been using it yet.

But all that's in the past now, and soon we'll all have a glorious ten-minute window to turn regret into relief. Read more about the upcoming unsend feature here.
