How to recover deleted conversation on Facebook?


Is it possible to recover deleted chat history on Facebook? A buddy and I have a disagreement about a conversation we had a few weeks ago, and I would love to be able to prove exactly what each of us said.

Generally no, you can't recover something you have deleted, but many people actually archive things in Facebook by mistake instead of actually deleting them. Just type your buddy’s name in the search box, and I think it will show your archived conversations if they exist. You can also check by selecting the MORE drop-down under messages, then selecting ARCHIVED.

Facebook says no:

"No, deleting a message permanently removes it from your inbox. If you want to hide a message from your inbox, but not delete it, you can archive it."
