The chat works like email or IM, so unfortunately once you've sent, there is no way to unsend it. You can try selecting the message thread in Messages and report it, then explain your situation and hope they'll help you.

SOURCE: A person on Facebook I

Your account has been discovered by someone to not have all the security activated and they have extracted all the information they were able out of it.
You can either go into the setting and put everything on private (but this is like closing the barn doors after the horses have bolted) or, best, delete the account. You can wait for 3 months then use another e-mail address to create another account if you really need it.

How to delete a text message I sent


You mean you sent message to a wrong person? Sorry, I think it is too hard to delete it. Because at present Apple hasn't supported people to withdraw messages.

Tip

Deleting a message sent on facebook using 'Honesty Box' application.


You can delete a message you sent on Facebook by going to the original posting and floating the mouse over the message. A box will appear with the word "delete" and you click on it. The message will magically disappear! Of course, if the person has already read it...apologizing and groveling are the only alternatives.

How cai i remove a message that i wrote to afriend at skype 1day ago?


You cannot delete or edit any chat message sent, even if it has NOT been delivered yet after 1 hour from the time the chat message was created, the only exception to this is if the message is for/sent to/trying to be sent to a multi-chat ("A chat that has more than 2 people in it") and you are the creator of that multi-chat.

I want to know how to delete a private message I have posted on facebook.


I've been through something like that and researched it thoroughly. I'm afraid you won't like the answer. Unlike facebook posts, which you are free to delete and it will no longer be available, facebook messages are more like email, in the sense that all you can delete is the copy you can see. If the message has already been "delivered", you can not remove or delete the copy (or copies) at the receiver end. Best you can do is follow up with an explanation or apology, or do whatever damage control you can come up with. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

In my chat box the messages i send to my friends they don't receive it but when i send them same messages through messages they receive it


Chances are the friend to whom you are sending might be accessing Facebook via mobile. Mobile Facebook does not provide chat notifications appropriately and it depends on the device too. When you send message or chat,both are now equal in Facebook. Recent Facebook version,what it does is, it combines chat and message into message section. Whatever you chat is sent as message to the person,if that person is offline or not responding to chat. If at the time of receiving message,you are online,then you receive it in chat window. At the same time,you might see notification in Message area.

Eventhough it is to an extent confusing,either way,you can reply/chat and you get all messages. In short,your message never gets lost. It gets to your friend. If he/she cannot see it in Chat,they can definitely see it in Messages section.

I send a message to chat with a friend. They recieve it and reply and are advised i am off line. I dont recieve any replies to chat messages


First the message is received at the destination is indication of sucessful submission. An indication of application offline unless were in relation to the message sent is ok since persons may have disconnected. Also, the facebook chats allows to store the message as sent during the entities absence until available on the network to display what was sent.

If you accidently delete a inbox message can you get it back


In order to recover a facebook conversation:
You MUST have received an email notification from facebook, telling you that someone sent you a message. Ex. Paul Wilson sent you a message on facebook
Click on that email.. If you have already deleted the email, check your deleted messages folder (hotmail, gmail, etc.)
At the bottom of the message, you will see a link, click on the link that says :
To reply to this message, follow the link below :
ex. http://www.facebook.com/inbox.php?lh=0e5633de8d92e7fab7145ffc710260dc&
then click on : SHOW DELETED THREAD.
And you're done!
If your turned off notifications and received no email for the message, then there is no way to get it back, I'm sorry.
