Facebook Creates Private Posts That Disappear After They Have Been Read

Quote:
It is the sort of thing adulterers dream of - technology which destroys all evidence of their philandering ways.
And it has now become a reality after Facebook announced a new app which erases pictures and messages within 10 seconds of being sent.
It is an advanced version of one of the the social networking site's original apps, the 'poke'.
The equivalent of a head nod or wink, the 'poke' in its old form is rarely used today as the site has become more advanced.
It has now been reinvented to be called 'Facebook Poke' and allows users to send fleeting messages, pokes, photos and 10-second videos to friends.
The messages expire after a set period of time, from 1 to 10 seconds, and cannot be retrieved by either party again, making it perfect for sending salacious images without leaving a trail.
'With the Poke app, you can poke or send a message, photo, or video to Facebook friends to share what you're up to in a lightweight way,' said the site in a blog post announcing the new app.

When you open the app, you can choose from a set of icons at the bottom of the screen to send a poke, type a 120-character message, open the camera to snap a picture - you cannot choose an existing photo - or shoot a 10-second video.
You then decide how long you want the recipient to see the message for.
It is said the new facility is similar to Snapchat, an app which is popular with younger age users, and which has gained a reputation as a tool for sending risque images.
Facebook is encouraging users to report inappropriate messages.
It's blog continued: 'If you ever see something you're uncomfortable with, you can click the gear menu and report it,' it said.

You'll have to be mega-quick but that's a great idea

In the olden days, that was known as "PrtSc".

So complex for Mac users, I bet facebook had them in mind when creating this and not the windows users who only need to hit the PrtScn button and voila! A saved image.

I know..really complex. What's the point of shortcuts anyway? The keyboard should just have 200 keys instead.

If you'd like you can also change the shortcut to whatever key you want. Personally I have the spacebar dedicated to it since I'm screen printing all the time.

Does Windows have an equivalent of Command+Shift+4 where you can specify exactly what you want to take a picture of? Voila!
