The crowd of netizens around the globe can be divided into two broad groups based on their preferences for communication: the texters and the callers. Many assume that this difference is merely an introvert-extrovert thing, but there’s a lot more to it than what appears on the surface. Another major reason why some people prefer calls over texts is that, unlike calls, texts have records. You can always go back to a chat to see what you had said or at what time. It’s a blessing for those with rusty memories.
However, on social media, you’re not always given full control of your chats. Someone else can delete them on their end and make them vanish for you as well.
Does such a thing happen on Facebook? How can you tell if a fellow Messenger user deleted your conversation from his app? If these questions have been bothering you, give us a chance to share their answers with you in this blog.
How to Know If Someone Deleted Your Conversation on Messenger
Let’s get to the question that has piqued your interest: How to tell if someone deleted your conversation with them on Messenger?
The straightforward answer is: You can’t. Well, not unless you have their phones or Messenger password with you, which we highly doubt is possible here.
The act of deleting a conversation is highly private on Facebook Messenger, which is why the second party will receive no notification if the first party chooses to delete their conversation from their inbox.
Now, let’s come to the point of why. Why would you want to know if someone deleted their conversation with you from their inbox?
While on some platforms, the act of deletion removes a conversation from the inboxes of both parties, Facebook follows no such policy. In other words, even if someone did delete their conversation with you, it will have no impact on the conversation in your inbox.
