The bad news is that you'll only get 10 minutes after sending a message to delete it.

The note states that users will be able to remove a message within 10 minutes of sending it "if you accidentally send the wrong photo, incorrect information or message the wrong thread". The social network said this was to "protect [their] executives' communications" following the Sony Pictures email hack in 2014. Facebook is about to bring similar unsend functionality to its Messenger application, now that its WhatsApp mobile chat app has it.

Evidence that an unsend option was getting closer arrived last month when renowned leaker Jane Manchun Wong revealed it being used in the Android app. WhatsApp gives users a full hour to take back a text, and Instagram gives its users an unlimited window to delete direct messages. Still, it's better than having nothing at all. Even Gmail gives users a few seconds to "undo send".

Vietnam will join the Formula 1 calendar in 2020, with the inaugural Vietnamese Grand Prix set to take place in April that year. A street circuit is a great way to do that.

Facebook will soon roll out a feature on its Messenger service users have always been calling for. Facebook's unsend for both its messaging apps will actually deliver the message when you hit send.

While Facebook won't allow us to have Zuckerberg's god-level ability to scrub 8 year old messages, we'll certainly take the ten minutes over the current option of fresh out of luck.
