Tip & How-To about Facebook Apps

Deleting a message sent on facebook using 'Honesty Box' application.

You can delete a message you sent on Facebook by going to the original posting and floating the mouse over the message. A box will appear with the word "delete" and you click on it. The message will magically disappear! Of course, if the person has already read it...apologizing and groveling are the only alternatives.

How do I Delete a message I sent on facebook


Unfortunately, messages cannot be removed from Facebook once sent. If you want to be able to remove a message in the future, I would suggest making it a post or a comment, which can be deleted. Sorry I couldn't be of more help!

how do I edit a post I have out there (its my post)


The only thing you can do to edit Facebook posts is to delete them and repost them. There is no "edit" feature on Facebook. To delete them, drag your mouse to the top right corner of the post box and click on the "X" that appears.

someone wrote the big "C"


Hi there.
You can delete the post (move your mouse over their comment and a 'x' in a box will appear), click on it, and it will say "remove post". IF you want to report them, click on their name, which will take you to their profile page, scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the "Report/block this person" link, in blue. Then click on the button for "Inappropriate wall post", Facebook will get a message regarding this, but may not take any action. You can block them in the square box underneath too.
