Only small catch, you can only delete your own personal posts, not the embarrassingly cringe things your friends might have put on your timeline. You can only hide those. But who cares, they might still have the posts there, but you don't.

And, you can only remove 50 posts at a time. So if you were a serial cringe-poster back in the day, you'll have to do a few different sessions of deleting before your timeline is clean.
