How to Find Archived Messages on Facebook Messenger

The archive chat is a handy feature that lets you hide conversations from your Messenger inbox. While you can access archived messages later on if required. On the other hand, deleting a conversation permanently removes the chat which you cannot retrieve later on. That’s why it’s better to archive messages from people you don’t wish to interact with anytime soon. You can archive all the unwanted individual or group chats to keep your Messenger inbox clean and organized. That said, if you are hav...

Facebook is pivoting

“The future is private,” said Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook’s roadmap, after conceding “we don’t exactly have the strongest reputation on privacy right now, to put it lightly.” But it’s easy to see why he would genuinely want that … now. Facebook’s seemingly endless series of privacy debacles have been disastrous for the company’s reputation. Not its revenue, mind you; but revenue is famously a lagging indicator in the tech industry. Companies which, like Facebook, effectively become utilities, te...

Ninth Circuit Chunks Another Section 230 Ruling—HomeAway v. Santa Monica (Catch-up Post)

I’m finally blogging this Airbnb/HomeAway 230 ruling from 6 weeks ago. Why so long? Honestly, I lacked the emotional fortitude to blog it. The outcome isn’t novel—it reaches the same conclusion as the Airbnb v. San Francisco ruling from 2016 (a case I ranked in my top 10 Internet Law rulings of all time)—but the opinion’s overexpansive language and tone deafness sapped my strength.
