Facebook has been under scrutiny for allegedly breaching the trust of it’s users. It seems that the privacy of the Chief Executive Office, Mark Zuckerberg was receiving more attention than that of the consumers. Many campaigns have been launched recently in order to rectify this unfortunate, alleged misconduct. It was recently announced by Facebook that users will have the same feature added to all of the other features of the social network. They will soon be able to unsend any message that they send to someone else’s inbox. Your text to link… Many people see this as a very bad risk, one that could foster harassment, and bullying.
This new feature on the Facebook app will allow users to post messages that may be harmful, or derogatory, then immediately delete them before they can be witnessed by others. If this campaign feature were to become a reality, some people may become afraid to open their inboxes. It could make it easier to verbally stalk someone, then remove all incriminating evidence. The users of Facebook want many perks, and user friendly features, but this in one that the public may need to do without. Facebook still remains as one of the leading social media networks available in spite of their recent controversy. Even the breach in trust issue has not stopped the millions of Facebook users. It has become a convenient way of life for many, and an easy way to stay connected with family and friends who are far away.
