Did he/she share your post? Then I believe it should disappear if you remove your post. If the person made a copy of the image it's trickier, or even impossible. You could try reporting it (open the image, press options then report image), but I'm not sure Facebook removes it if it isn't disturbing for the general public. You really have to be careful ...

I've been dying to figure out how to do this, and I've already tried messing with the Facebook API to obtain my message history with a single person - without success.

I had the same issue that you did. I tried to view the Facebook notification from my Android device using the Facebook application.

Just figured this out! First option... you can always just simply block the person, but then you will not be able to access the pages for any event they organize at all, even if you have the link for it.

The preview will stay there and your post won't contain any URLs, nakaguro problems or not.
