Facebook officials have confirmed that they are testing a new smartphone feature allowing users to schedule “self-destructing posts” that disappear from their news feed a set time after posting, a function similar to that offered by the app Snapchat, which Facebook unsuccessfully tried to acquire last year for $3 billion. What do you think?
“This is the next best thing to never having to see them in the first place.”

“Finally, a way to post things that I know in advance are a bad idea to share.”

“Yeah, that’s a $3 billion feature all right.”
