During the course of your life, you’ll come across friends who you don’t want to keep in your Facebook Messenger. Sometimes, you might even need to delete a conversation or unfriend someone on Facebook. Here are a few ways you can do this:
Delete a conversation on Facebook
Delete a conversation on Facebook Messenger is a great way to clean up your inbox. You can delete single messages or whole chat threads. You can also delete group chats if you are the admin.
To delete a conversation on Facebook Messenger, you will need to log into your account. Then, you can follow the steps outlined below to get the job done.
First, you will want to hover over the conversation that you want to delete. Three menu dots will appear, which you can click to bring up a confirmation screen.
Next, you will need to select the “Delete” button from the menu. You can also long-press on the thread to bring up the delete option.
Finally, you will need to confirm that you want to delete the conversation. After you have confirmed, you will see a text alerting everyone that the conversation has been removed. This may take a few seconds.
In addition, you may have to scroll down to see older conversations.
Unfriend a person on Facebook
Whether you’ve grown apart from someone you used to be close to, or you simply want to keep yourself a little more anonymous, unfriending a person on Facebook can be a quick and easy way to remove them from your friends list. Although it may not seem like it, there are actually several different ways to do it.
In the past, you might have had to go through a long process of waiting for a friend to respond to a message, or you might have found yourself ignoring a person’s posts because you weren’t sure what they were saying. Now, you can unfriend a person on Facebook by following a few simple steps.
First, you need to know the person’s profile. Depending on which version of the Messenger app you’re using, you’ll have to open the contact’s account, and then scroll through their contact list.
When you find a person you want to unfriend, you can click the three horizontal dots next to their name. This will open a menu of options. You can click the Remove Contact button or Block Messages.
Mute a person on Facebook
Using Facebook Messenger to mute a person is easy. You can do this whenever you want and you can do it for a short or a long time. You can also mute a post or a group post.
The reason for muting someone is different from blocking someone. If you are muted, you won’t receive notifications about new messages from that person. But, you will still be able to see their messages. It’s a great way to keep track of a conversation you have with someone.
Facebook also allows you to mute a post for up to 30 days. You can do this if you have a group chat and you want to avoid reading posts from that person. It’s also great for privacy reasons.
If you mute a post, it’s only visible to you. This will keep you from seeing a notification from the person who sent the post. They may not know that they were muted.
Remove non friends from your sidebar
During your time on Facebook, you may have encountered a few messages from a stranger that you don’t want to receive. This may happen if the person is a spammer or if they’re selling a product. If you’re not interested in chatting with these people, you can delete them from your Messenger contact list.
If you’ve recently noticed that someone you aren’t friends with is showing up in your sidebar, you may want to delete them. This will stop them from showing up in your feed or from sending you messages. You can also prevent them from being added to group chats.
You can remove a non-friend from your Messenger contact list one at a time or in bulk. To remove a friend, go to their profile and click on the info icon. If you’re removing a non-friend from your Messenger contact lists, you’ll also need to click on the “Remove contact” option.
Alternatively, you can delete all of your contacts from your Messenger account. This will remove them from your Messenger contacts list and stop them from sending you messages. You can also prevent your contacts from sending you messages by blocking them.
