    Let's just say it would be a little boring to scroll back all the way to October or September of last year. Is there a quicker way to do this?


    EDIT: I tried using the search conversation button, but it only shows you the exact messages containing a word you choose, and that doesnt work for me because i need the conversation of the whole day

    Well, if you know the date of the conversation ctrl+f that.
    Then just look for the specific part of the convo you need.

    Sorry, that's all I can think of :(

    I hate to say this and have it come off wrong, but they do have a help center on Facebook that can answer all of these questions you've had.

    http://www.facebook.com/help/

    There is no way to search by date according to this help section.

    I wish they would make one, but seriously if your really that lazy just to scroll up and find a message then that's sad.

    Hello Cheker32,

    I hope i can help you!

    If you remember any part of your conversation with particular persona then go to messages click conversation of yours with that person and search any specific set of word that you may have used in that conversation which you want to retrieve you wil get messages of that day. there you can see if that result matches to your query or not. :angel:
