How To Delete Facebook Messages

[ad]Dear Computer Lady,

I have a question on my ipad 2…when using facebook and sending a message how do you clear those messages off so you no longer see those messages.


Dear Helen,

If you are using the Facebook app on your iPad (instead of viewing it in a web browser like, Safari) just follow these directions.

Open a conversation on your iPad so that you can see the messages you want to delete.

Hold your finger on a message until a menu appears (this is called a long press).

Release your finger, then tap on, “Delete”.

If you are viewing Facebook in a web browser, no matter what device you are using, just click the, “Actions” menu when viewing a conversation, check off the messages you want to delete, then click the, “Delete” button at the bottom of the list of messages.
