Benefit to Hide SEEN, If you read message

Yes, I know Facebook is a brand social media. Facebook has top level privacy policies for their users. You can easily hide your Facebook profile from search engines, hide mobile numbers, block applications, block friends and download your Facebook information. Similar as above, Facebook also allows you to control over Seen function which display on the friend's end, once you read their massages. I repeat, Facebook has this privacy too, since it has top level privacy system. Mostly person don't know this micro trick. Many of the users are here on Facebook who don't wish to show off that he/she reads message sent by someone. Let's take an interesting example;

Let's you have a girl friend who sent a message to you, and you read it but you were so busy, and could not be able to reply her, and you did not reply to her. Do you know what will happen? Next time, you'd talk with her. It would be happen something like the following;
GF: Why did you not reply me?
You: I had no time.
GF: OK, you hadn't time even for me.......
You: hmmm, actually I had not seen your message.
GF: Can I send you a screenshot when had you seen my message?
You: offo....
and fighting starts.......

So the simple tip is that using this micro trick, and stay away from such types of conversation that leads fight. :)
