Facebook Introduces ‘Clear History’ And ‘Dating’ So You Can Refresh Life Anytime

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has unveiled a ‘Clear History’ button, which allows users to easily delete their data from the social network.

Similar to your browser’s clearing history feature, this button allows users to erase any information Facebook keeps while you are browsing the platform, according to Zuckerberg.

“We’re starting with something a lot of people have asked about recently: the information we see from websites and apps that use Facebook’s ads and analytic tools,” Zuckerberg said in his Facebook post.

“You’re going to be able to use this tool to see the information about the apps and websites you’ve interacted with. You’ll be able to clear all this information from your account. You’ll even be able to turn it off,” he said.

Zuckerberg also highlighted that those who use the ‘Clear History’ feature might not be experiencing Facebook at its peak. Zuckerberg explained that Facebook’s collection of information creates better experience as Facebook ensures that more relevant ads are shown to the user.

Clearing your history means Facebook has to “relearn your preferences.”

Facebook is also introducing a new dating service called ‘Dating’. It will exist within the app, and allows users to create a separate profile from their main account to get involved in romantic connections.

Your main account will not interfere with your ‘Dating’ profile. To keep it separated, the ‘Dating’ profile only uses your first name and it will not match you with your existing Facebook friends.

Facebook will help you find your potential date “based on dating preferences, things in common, and mutual friends.” Facebook is said to test the ‘Dating’ feature later this year.
