Facebook Messenger Has A New “Vanish Mode” and It’s A Total Vibe

Get ready to send flirty, secret messages to your significant other!

Facebook just rolled out a new messenger feature and it’s a total vibe. I am digging it.

The new Facebook Messenger Feature is called “Vanish Mode” and it’s a way to secretly have a conversation with someone and allow the messages to expire and basically wipe off the face of the earth after a certain time.

How to use the Vanish Mode in Facebook messenger in a secret conversation:

  1. From Home, tap 
  2. Tap Secret in the top right.
  3. Select who you want to message.
  4. Tap  in the text box and choose a time.
  5. Tap Done to set a timer to make the message disappear.

I used my husband as an example so I could show you how it works:

Once you do that, the chat turns black and you can set the duration of how long you want your message to be viewable.

Once the person views the message, a countdown timer pops up and once that time is over, the message is no longer viewable.

Obviously, I find it cool to send sweet and lovey messages to my husband. I won’t really use it for anything else. However, some are saying it would make it easy for people to chat (which they are not wrong).

The thing is, while the actual message disappears, that person doesn’t disappear from your recent messages list so, if you are trying to cheat, this might just be the dumbest way to do it ha!

So, what do you think? Is this a cool feature? I think it’d even be great for surprises for people like surprise parties or gifts.

When vanish mode is over.. does it make the original conversation with that person show up at the top of ur inbox like it was a recent message but there is nothing new in it?
