This new feature has been reported from various users during the last iOS update and Facebook has verified they’re indeed running a pilot to see whether they could roll it out to more users.
Until now, users can schedule the deletion of their post to be executed within the range from 1 hour to 7 days. However, keep in mind that it may take up to 7 days to disappear from Facebook‘s servers.
This new feature is just another addition to Facebook‘s portfolio of ephemeral functions – see Slingshot, the latest app it developed following the tracks of Snapchat.
