Facebook 101: Deleting Mistakenly Sent Messages

It's a nightmare scenario. But when it happens, you'll be ready.


By By James F. McClister March 20, 2019
facebook messages remodelers didnt mean to send can be deleted
This article first appeared in the March 2019 issue of Pro Remodeler.

We’ve all sent a message we wish we could’ve immediately erased. As an individual, it’s understandable, albeit embarrassing. But as a business, it could be the difference between gaining or keeping and losing customers. 

Luckily, Facebook has your back. Retracting a message is as easy as 1, 2, 3. 

Step 1. Press on and hold the message until the submenu pops up, asking if you want to remove it 

Step 2. Select “remove from everyone” so that the message will be deleted for all parties  

Step 3. Finalize your request by selecting “remove.” Note that even though the message will be removed, the recipient will still receive a notification that a message has been deleted. So be prepared to field a question or two on that, if the client is curious. 

The solution works for both Android and Apple platforms. Messages that have been opened cannot be deleted.
