is there any way of intercepting / deleting a private facebook message you sent to someone?
this is actually really serious
The answer's no though
go to your inbox, theres an outbox/sent folder i think you can delete from
unless they get and read their email notifications in which case you're screwed
I thought that just deletes it on your side, and it'll still be sat in their inbow...
but you'll need to post it on here first
Probably go into their e-mail account too, to delete the notification.
Maybe the two passwords are the same? That'd make things easier.
a problem shared is a problem halved.
i was spitefully getting off on someone having a more shit one than me. i do apologise.
It's hard to really empathise when we don't know what you've actually done. It's probably not that bad. :D
appreciate the apology mirri, thanks
but you've gotta allow that if this was someone else's thread you'd be on the side of the Lolz.
due to various relationships and also why certain of our friends' relationships were fucked.
Unfortunately she'd emailed her original message to a general group that all the friends involved were on that had been set up for social stuff and I didn't notice until after I sent my reply.
That was bad. But I'm still here. And still friends with almost everyone involved. Like yeah.
does anyone know if email notifications are the default setting?
but if they're popular they might get loads and just to a big delete of them all without reading any of them
That's retarded. What if you were abusing someone and then deleting the evidence?
maybe i made it up
Professing your undying love to her?
I feel your pain.
more getting upset with a friend cos i thought they did soemthing.
and then realising today they actually didn't.
and it's still the most embarrassing thing I've ever typed. Well, after 'inbow' up there ^.
I might show you one day.
And you WILL show me. It sounds AWESOME entertainment :D
If you felt it enough to do it at the time then you should go with your instinct. This could be a GOOD THING. I will sing at your wedding.
If you really don't mean what you said, then you should mail back claiming your were paralytic at the time, or something about being hacked by a madman.
I don't know how likely it is someone could hear that and then just delete without reading, but you never know. I had to do this, kind of, when I sent an email calling my colleague a racist old bitch TO HER. Fun times.
I say approach her and admit you wrote a load of bollocks in a mad blind haste and explain why you did it and apologise profusely. It'll be awkward, but you'll feel better for being honest and getting things off your chest. Then you can work on sorting whatever there is to sort out.
I've done this before. A week of profuse apology, admitting I had a made a mistake and intense misery from both parties = an amicable resolution.
If you've made a genuine error in sending it, and its contents aren't anything so shocking they won't want to be associated with you ever again, then you'll be alright. Ain't nice in the meantime though...
