The Messages feature resembles exclusive messaging in discussion forums. You can send, delete or archive messages or entire conversations. Using this feature, you can likewise send and get email like in a traditional email system if you have actually established a Facebook e-mail address.
The erase choice is partially concealed from view in Facebook Messages. To erase a message that you had actually sent, click the conversation it belongs to, click the "Actions" button on top right and pick "Delete Messages." Click the sent message as well as click "Delete" This completely removes the message from your account. However it does not stop that message from being supplied to the recipient. Once you have sent out a message, it can not be undone.
The Messages user interface prefers archiving messages over erasing them. When you click the "x" switch beside a message, Facebook archives the message. It vanishes from sight yet is not deleted. To see archived messages, click the magnifying glass button and pick "Archived Messages." Clicking the arrowhead switch on a message sends it back to the primary folder.

To seek a particular message, enter your search terms in the search box beside the magnifying glass. If you intend to tighten your search to a specific conversation, choose that conversation first.
