10 Things You Didn't Know About Facebook

Boasting over one billion users, Facebook currently exists as the most popular social networking website in the world. In 12 short years, the website has achieved a lot: it’s provided old friends with a way to reunite, helped employers see who their employees really are, and become a paradise on earth for stalkers. Most notably, Facebook has revolutionized the way people communicate with one another.

Before Facebook, Myspace and MSN dominated the social networking world. However, what made Facebook stand out and become so successful was its ability to attract people from all walks of life. Simply put, whether you’re a business person, an artist, or just someone looking to meet new people, Facebook has something to offer you.

That being said, Facebook isn’t perfect and does have some notable flaws: its terms and conditions include a number of worrying privacy rules and the “send” receipt in messenger can ruin lives. However, this article isn’t intended to focus on the positives and negatives of Facebook; rather it is intended to expose some hidden tips and tricks which could potentially help users navigate and resolve issues with the site. For example, did you know there’s a way to turn off the “send” receipt in Messenger and help your Facebook friends pronounce your name? This article will also reveal a couple of additions to the social networking site you may not already know about - like Lookback, which allows users to view their entire Facebook history, and the Faces of Facebook, which reveals every user's profile in one collage of pictures.

1 Turn Off The "Seen" Messenger Receipt

Overall, it's arguable that the "seen" receipts cause more harm than good amongst friends over Facebook. However, luckily, there's a way to disable the "seen" receipts on FB Messenger so that people don't know you've read their message. To do so, simply install Facebook Unseen Chrome extension or  Chat Undetected. The only catch to these extensions is that, if activated, you won't be able to know when people have "seen" your messages either.
