As per the company blog, “People will be able to sort and filter their content and interactions by date and search for past comments, likes and stories replies from specific date ranges, all in one place.” This way, users can even see which posts they have deleted or archived recently, links they visited, and the amount of time they spend on the platform.
To perform these tasks, all you need to do is go to your “Profile” and tap the menu in the upper right corner, next tap “Your activity” and that is it.
As per a company’s tweet, “To help people who have lost access to their accounts, we’re testing a way for people to ask their friends to confirm their identity and help them regain access.”
