Be social and personalize conversations

    Nice information. Thank you.

    I am using facebook app in my smartphone but not the messenger. While using facebook app, I can not delete the whole conversation by clicking on a single button. If I want to do delete whole conversation, I have to select every message one by one and then I use to delete the full conversation. But it is not the case with the facebook messenger app.

    Could you please assist on the above mentioned issue?
