It’s Easy to Clean Up Your Facebook with IDShield

Can you remember what you did in the summer of 2012? Well, the odds are you probably can’t, but your Facebook probably will know! In this blog post, we explain how easy it is to delete your old Facebook posts and photos with IDShield and our advanced social media clean-up tools.

Embarrasing social media posts & photos?

Since Facebook launched in 2004, it has been the go-to for many of our customers to share their photos and memories for decades. Unfortunately for many, those old posts and photos haven’t aged well and aren’t a reflection of who they are today. From embarrassing college photos to posts that don’t paint our former selves in the best light, it’s quite likely you might have something you’ll need to take down and delete.

We’ve found that the average IDShield customer has over 1,500 Facebook posts and photos, which would take hours to review and delete manually. Facebook doesn’t exactly make it easy to review and delete old content, with individuals often needing to click in several places per photo or post to take something down, which the time adds up.

Quick & easy scan

At IDShield we’re here to help. Our proprietary software makes it quick and easy to review and delete your old posts and photos on Facebook. After connecting your account, our scan will automatically review your old post and photos looking for content that could damage your professional reputation. If you do have any flagged items to review, they’ll be shown in your dashboard and on your own personal Persona Score.

When using our Facebook feature you can navigate your old photos and posts in one place and can select items to delete from a specific date range or even search for a photo or post by putting in a place, category, or keyword in the search bar. Then, following this, mark the item in the checkbox and press delete. Our Chrome Browser extension will then start to delete each item for you in your own browser, saving you hours of time compared to finding and clicking each one manually.

Facebook, Twitter & Instagram deletion services

Our social media deletion service also covers Twitter and Instagram. So, sign up today to scan your accounts and then join the thousands of others who’ve cleaned up their social media quickly and easily with IDShield.
