Facebook’s New ‘Manage Activity’ Feature Lets You Archive or Trash Old Posts


To help users archive or trash old posts quickly, Facebook has launched a new Manage Activity feature that lets them view the posts they want to manage in bulk. The company has also introduced filters to help users sort and find what they’re looking for, such as posts with specific people or from a specific date range.

Whether you’re entering the job market after college or moving on from an old relationship, we know things change in people’s lives, and we want to make it easy for you to curate your presence on Facebook to more accurately reflect who you are today. That’s why we’re launching Manage Activity to help you archive or trash old posts, all in one place.

The archive feature is for content you no longer want others to see on Facebook, but that you still want to keep for yourself. For example, you could archive a post you made when you were in high school that you still find amusing but that you’d rather not be seen by anyone else on Facebook.

Meanwhile, posts sent to the trash will stay there for 30 days before being deleted unless you choose to manually delete or restore them before then.

Manage Activity will launch first on mobile and Facebook Lite, and will be available on desktop in the future.
