You should notice that your Facebook content has begun to disappear. It should have been deleted. You should refresh the page to play it safe to make sure that content has in fact been deleted.
10. You should notice that the content has been deleted. As you can see here, older content that is hidden from view may not have been deleted yet. Simply 'rinse and repeat', by refreshing the page and pressing the 'magic button' again.
A word of warning: This only deletes a mass of posts at a time. You may need to scroll to the bottom of each page to hit Older posts in order to wipe more, or keep having to refresh the page to retrieve older content. It's not perfect, but it's a far quicker way of deleting content than individually hitting the delete button on each post.
Along with others, it seems there is roughly a 90 percent success rate. I have tried this and it has worked, along with others with a majority of success. In some cases it has not entirely worked, only to work a second or third time. Be persistent. If it continues not to work, then try another method later in this gallery.
Also, in some cases, content can get 'stuck'. You may need to manually intervene to remove one or two posts that the script does not recognise, such as game or application activity, and then try hitting the 'magic button' again.
Eventually, once you continue to 'rinse and repeat' by refreshing the page and hitting the 'magic button', you will have no more content to delete. It would be wise to set aside an afternoon, get a pot of coffee brewing, and get your mouse-clicking finger at the ready.
Or, if you continue, and learn how to use macro applications, you could even automate this process to leave it (mostly) unattended. It's not a perfect solution, but it's quite speedy and requires little intervention once it gets ticking over.
Once you see the 'This is your Wall' message, you should have no more posts to delete. Success!
Getting set up with the macro software is easy, but actually getting the correct combination of macro code to work is something else entirely.
Many have tried and struggled with the code, which is generated automatically by button clicks and mouse movements. Facebook certainly doesn't make it easy for those who want to rid their profile pages of the vast amount of data that is put there.
1. For this, you need to be running Firefox still as your web browser, and not Chrome.
2. Head to the Mozilla Addons pages from your Firefox browser. You should be looking at a script called iMacros for Firefox.
iMacros will be installed directly into your Firefox browser, allowing you to 'sandbox' your macros to interact with only web pages, rather than your system as a whole.
3. Click the Add to Firefox button. You may be prompted a few times to install the addon to the browser.
4. You should then restart Firefox when it prompts to you to do so. In doing this, it will install iMacros to the browser allowing you to create automated code.
