The top result from a Google search of the above phrase is an unequivocal post by Facebook themselves which starts ‘If you deleted them, then they are gone and you cannot get them back’
Well, if Facebook say it, it must be true, right? Ummm… No.
A large number of search results follow, with titles such as:
‘How to find deleted messages on Facebook’ ‘How to recover deleted Facebook messages’ ‘How to REALLY recover your deleted Facebook messages’ 'Is there anyway of getting back deleted Facebook messages?' 'How to bring back deleted Facebook messages'
And so on…. Closer inspection of these websites reveals that they are not providing methods to recover deleted Facebook messages, onlyarchived messages. Generally speaking, most people would delete, not archive their messages. It’s not looking good at this point…
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll know how much Facebook is a part of our everyday lives and if you’re in the legal profession you’ll already know how often Facebook messages, especially deleted Facebook messages, can be crucial to a case.

‘But if they are gone from Facebook, how is that possible?’
When the user of a mobile phone or tablet uses Facebook on that device, messages sent and received are stored on the device. We are able to perform a physical (bit-for-bit) download of the handset memory, from which we can carve all manner of deleted data including those elusive deleted Facebook messages.
