A report has revealed that Facebook has started to test a new feature, borrowed from Snapchat, which allows users to set their posts for deletion after a certain interval of time, anything from one hour to seven days.

According to The Verge, Facebook said that the feature was a "pilot" and was being tested only on their iPhone apps. It is only available to a few users like many other experiments it runs.

The social networking website also placed a brief Help page on its website that explained how to set an expiry date for a Facebook post.

If the test is successful, Facebook is expected to roll out the feature to all users but not as a default setting, the report said.
