Like Instagram, Facebook might delete certain comments that violate its privacy policy. For example, if a user posts any harassing or threatening comment, Facebook might delete it. You could also delete these messages from your comment box. You must have seen how certain comments are deleted from a celebrity’s account automatically. Well, these are mostly the comments that violate Facebook’s privacy terms.

Facebook users have the full authority to delete comments posted by others in their comment box as well as the comments they have published in others’ posts. In a nutshell, you have the full authority to delete the actions taken on your post and the comments you left on somebody else’s post.

However, there are times when we end up deleting the informative comments. How many times have you tried to delete a comment on Facebook, but ended up deleting the wrong comment instead? The question is how do you recover these comments?

How to Recover Deleted Facebook Comments

1. Archive Deleted Posts

As mentioned earlier, all your data on Facebook (the deleted one) is stored in the Facebook server for easy recovery. This also suggests the importance of following the best commenting practices, as Facebook keeps all your data stored in its server. So, it is better to post nice comments on other’s posts. In addition, you can have peace of mind knowing that Facebook keeps all your comments and data stored safely in a server and this information can be retrieved anytime you want, at your convenience. On that note, let’s check out some easy and effective ways of recovering the deleted comments on Facebook.

2. Undo the Comment

If you deleted a comment by mistake and you realize it instantly, you can undo your actions to get the message back. However, the only problem with this method is that the undo option stays for only a brief period – not longer than 5 seconds. So, if you manage to realize that you have deleted wrong comments and undo the action within this period, you are good to go! However, if you want to recover a comment you had deleted a few days ago, this method is not going to work.

As you delete a comment from Facebook, a sudden pop-up message asking you to undo the deleted comment will be displayed on your screen. It stays for a few seconds and disappears if you don’t click on undo. Now, there is no manual way to bring the undo option back. Here’s what else you can do instead.
