    Don't you hate it when people complain to you on Facebook when you read their messages but aren't able to reply because you were busy with something else? The main thing to blame for this is the automatic read receipts that Facebook sends to the people that message you. This feature lets the message sender know whether or not you read their message, and Facebook doesn't give you the option to disable the feature.

    If you want to prevent message senders from knowing when you read their messages either in the Facebook application, or in the standalone Facebook Messenger application, then check our a new free Flipswitch add-on called FBUnseen Flipswitch by iOS developer GaryniL.

    FBUnseen Flipswitch basically gives you a Facebook private mode. With it installed and enabled, you can read any of your recipients' incoming messages and they won't be notified that you read their message. Instead, it will appear to them that you haven't seen their message yet, and this gives you the freedom of not being interrogated like you normally would when they see that you've read their message and haven't had the time to reply.

    FBUnseen Flipswitch can be paired with CCToggles or CCSettings in order to add a toggle switch to Control Center:

    With this in place, you can use the little eyeball switch to enable or disable private mode for messaging in any of your Facebook applications. When turned on, the toggle appears to be lit up; on the contrary, when the toggle is turned off, the toggle appears to be dimmed out.

    If you're running the bluePill jailbreak tweak that we showed you a few days ago, then you already have this functionality. On the other hand, if you need functionality like this and don't want to spend the money for it, then FBUnseen Flipswitch is a great direction for you to go.

    The add-on is available for free right now in Cydia's BigBoss repository. iOS 7 and Flipswitch are required for the install; however, CCToggles or CCSettings are optional.

    Hope there's also a FacebookLike Confirm esque wherein you are asked if you really wanted to like one's post
