Facebook is finally providing a solution for users eager to get rid of several older posts.
The social network announced Tuesday that it’s adding an option to let users delete multiple posts at the same time. The feature rolls out on mobile devices first before landing on desktop and Facebook Lite in the future.
“Manage Activity” will be available by accessing the activity log on your Facebook profile. From there, you can check off multiple posts for archiving.
The archiving option removes posts from your feed but allows you to keep them private. There is also a trash option to delete posts completely. The posts stay in trash for 30 days before permanently disappearing.
Users can also sort posts by date, or for posts with specific people, Facebook said.

“Whether you’re entering the job market after college or moving on from an old relationship, we know things change in people’s lives, and we want to make it easy for you to curate your presence on Facebook to more accurately reflect who you are today,” said the company in a statement.
Previously, Facebook had made it more difficult for users to get rid of several posts quickly. Users had to click on each post individually and select Delete to have them removed.
