Facebook launches 'Manage Activity' which allows users to delete old posts in bulk

The social media giant has launched a new tool, Manage Activity, which allows users to get rid of unwanted posts in bulk. Manage Activity allows users to delete or archive posts from a range of dates or involving particular people, so people can easily say goodbye to their exes, high school years and drunk outings.
=========================================
• Go to your Facebook profile then click on the ellipsis (three dots) under your name, then click on activity log.
• This will show you everything you have contributed to Facebook, including comments and reactions on other posts. Click on the Manage Activity link and then tap that you want to manage "Your Posts".
• From then you can filter posts. You can choose what kind of posts, such as check-ins, or photos. You can also filter the date range and the people who are tagged in them.
• Once you've selected some posts, you can choose to either "Archive" or "Trash" them.
The archive option hides them so only you can access them, but doesn't actually remove them from Facebook. The trash option puts them in a recycle bin for 30 days until they are permanently deleted. Unfortunately, users can't filter words by keyword for example, "drunk". But Facebook said it might add more in the future. In more bad news, people can't remove posts and photo made by others. The social media giant said in a statement that the new tool will "curate your presence on Facebook to more accurately reflect who you are today."
====================================
The tool launched on mobile from June 3 before moving to desktop at a later date. "We'll continue building new functionality for this tool to ensure it meets people's needs to manage their digital footprint on Facebook," the company said.

Eggs any way, anytime

Emma Reporter from Stuff Cooks

During lockdown, there was no leftover my family wouldn’t crack an egg onto and eat for breakfast: leftover mash, leftover chicken pot pie, the last dribbles of a batch of ham hock soup and once, a lamb chop.

Eventually “Eggs & Anything” infiltrated dinner and our standards dropped even lower: the skillet was dumped on the table along with a pile of forks, a few side plates - maybe, a tea towel as a napkin for the 8-year-old with the large lockdown appetite and away we went.

Lazy egg suppers have hung around in Alert Level 2 - minus the dinner dregs and skillet table service, and with the addition of an actual recipe: Turkish eggs, spicy red shakshuka and spiced bread egg in a hole.

Eggs, dukkah and garlic fried spinach is another favourite combo in our house. What's your favourite?
