No, unfortunately you cannot retrieve deleted messages from Facebook.
  • Facebook does not store your deleted messages once you have selected them to be deleted.
Under the privacy act it is illegal for companies to store information you have requested to be removed. This means that sites such as Facebook have to remove the relevant saved server files once you have chosen to delete them.
It can take a few moments to a few days for the server to cycle; however, most companies such as Facebook are not willing to go into the deleted files to recover the data or see if the data can be recovered.

Basically, once you have deleted a message it will be gone forever. It happens as quickly as possible so as to make space for new messages. The size of Facebook's following means it is important that their system is continually refreshed by removing the old information so that new information can be stored. This is why once a message is deleted it will be gone within the next login.

There is a way to test the server, but this isn't a permanent solution. Sometimes you can hit the back button on your web browser and find your deleted messages are still there. However, this only works if you pressed the back button within seconds and you did not log out. This is because the back button only returns you to a page memory so the message will permanently disappear once you do log out.

You may find that, even after a few seconds, pressing the back button won't bring the message back; this just depends on how quickly things work for the day. It is best to be absolutely sure you want to delete a message before you do so.

Yes you can if you still have the notification that facebook sends to your email. Click the link in the email, will take you to the deleted message.. Click "show deleted message", the message will re apppear but it will not go into your inbox back again..

I doubt you can...it's like if you send a sms(you know you can't cancel it!) so  it works the same with the inbox messages!

The new version of facebook has no such link. One way is to get the person you sent to reply you back on the same trend. It might work (bt I'm nt sure).

Facebook does not allow you to delete a message entirely - it still resides elsewhere.  For example, if you sent someone a message, and you delete it from your account, it will remain on the recipient's account.  Ask the recipient to send it to you.

If by chance you've deleted your messages on Facebook and you want to retrieve them. Then the only possible way is that the minute you delete your messages a yellow strip appears just below the compose new message strip stating You have just deleted a message.Undo.
By clicking the undo button you could retrieve your message back.
