New Facebook chat - no CLEAR HISTORY option!

Has anyone noticed the new Facebook chat that went live yesterday? Now you can see the picture-icon of who you're chatting with on every line.. whoopy-doo.. but there is no more clear chat history option!

Has anyone figured-out how to clear the chat history? even after closing the chat-box, logging-out of Facebook, then coming back and opening a new chat-window with someone you were previously chatting with, it brings up the entire chat history with that person - this could lead to some compromising situations!

UPDATE: It looks like the chat history is only saved for about 24 hours, so it does eventually clear on it's own

think about it for a moment. yes, people who are cheating on their spouses using FaceBook chat will have clear issues with this. however, those who are harassing and threatening others, particularly students and the 'bullying' issue, will not be able to hide what they have said. FaceBook is covering itself here.

that is absolutely rediculous. people dont necessarily want to clear their history to avoid being outted to their spouses. maybe you dont want your coworker sitting next to you to come over and read what has been said for any number of reasons. and if your being bullied on facebook....perhaps heres an idea...get off...or block them

maybe people should work ... at work , instead of chatting on facebook.

Right. People shouldn't be following message boards at work, either.

no more CLEAR HISTORY option in Facebook chat !

ok, i have looked everywhere: Privacy settings, account settings, chat settings, even the Facebook chat-help pages (which have not yet been updated) and as far as i can tell, it is NOT POSSIBLE to clear your chat history. Keeping chat history forever, or even for a short time is not a biggie for me, but I can see how this might cause big issues for some people and i am guessing it is only a matter of time before Facebook users start to revolt (again)..

Some idiot from FaceBook decide to remove that option "Clear Chat History". How can he still have a job without common sense ???
