Those embarrassing photos you deleted from Facebook? They’re still there - 




Those embarrassing photographs you thought you deleted from Facebook are still there, a technology site reports.


A photograph of a toddler posted and then deleted by a family friend in 2008 is still there, Ars Technica senior editor Jacqui Cheng said after verifying the information herself.


“The photo is still online, as are several others that readers linked me to that were deleted at various points in 2009 and 2010,” Cheng said.


Ars Technica first exposed the lingering deleted Facebook pictures three years ago and reported Monday that nothing had improved.


Facebook is trying to fix the problem, spokesman Frederic Wolens told the Star in an email on Tuesday.


“We have been working hard to move our photo storage to newer systems which do ensure photos are fully deleted within 30 days of the removal request being received,” he said.


“This process is nearly complete and there is only a very small percentage of user photos (fewer than 3 per cent) still on the old system awaiting migration.


“We expect this process to be completed within the next month or two.”
