Delete facebook status update on mobile interface has been a problem for many users. The tendency of making mistakes while typing using your android phone is very high, the reason is not too far from the small keyboard on the phones, auto correct spellings of some word also contribute to this errors.
Most of my status updates and photo uploads on facebook is through my Android phone. Previously, whenever I made mistake while updating my status, I had to log in using my laptop to delete facebook status update. But just of recent by accident I discovered the invisible (almost) remove button in the facebook app for Android that allow me to delete status updates right on the mobile interface.
What I will say is that, I don’t know how long the feature has been there, but all I know is, it does have the potential to keep you from embarrassment and as well save your time, as well prevent you from using laptop before you can delete facebook status update while you made mistake. So let us see how you can delete facebook status update directly from Android interface.
How to Delete Facebook Status Update on Mobile Interface
Using facebook on Android you can either just hide the update from your timeline and as well delete it completely. To delete a status update from Android view it on your news feed first. Most of us would long press the update to find the delete option, but that is not the case here, that is the reason I called it invisible way.
Swipe your thumb from left to right on the status update you want to delete to discover a small Remove button on the status. Simply press the button to delete facebook status update.
Another issue is that, you might not want to delete facebook status update but hind it from the timeline. You will have to swipe on the update in timeline view, after swiping on the timeline view you will see Hide from Timeline option along with the Delete Post option.
