So you heard that you can find out how to see your first Facebook message here. Or maybe you heard that you could save all of your old messages with someone for your own safe keeping (since Facebook seems to delete the older messages periodically – I learned that the hard way) No matter how you got here, below is a list of 3 different guides on how to save and see old Facebook messages.
[Notice: This is my old website. Don't fret! The links will take you to the new one.]
This method is for those who just want a quick backup of their messages, and the possibility to see their oldest messages without much knowledge of computers. This method has drawbacks though, as it only lists each conversation on one single giant page and you have to scroll through thousands of messages. Plus, Facebook makes you wait for your download at least a day. The next method is more useful if you just want to see the messages.
This method is the best if you want to see the first messages with a specific person and you can follow careful directions well. I personally think most people will choose this method because it’s still easy if you follow the steps carefully.
Well, if you want to save ALL your messages with someone in a clean PDF form, this is the guide for you. Be prepared to work for it though and make sure you have some time on your hands!
