How do I get my old facebook account back
Log in with your old email and password. If you don't have the email address anymore, you are stuck. You could email them and jump through a few hoops to prove who you are.

how do I delete it from my search results .
You can't.

Also how do I unblock myself from getting friends or even messaging.
you can't. That has to be done by the people that blocked you.

Need old messages from facebook for divorce

Facebook changed the way it handled messages some ago which means that older messages may be gone. Currently, unless you actively delete a conversation, it is saved in your message archive area. The office answer page is here:

How do you delete old messages and notifications on my facebook on my android

  1. Launch your Text Messages app
  2. Click the Menu button
  3. Tap on the Settings option
  4. Scroll down to "Delete old messages" and tap on this option to enable it (make sure there is a green checkmark in the box)
  5. Select your "Text message limit". The lower the number the better. I recommend 100 messages per conversation. But you can set this lower or higher depending on your preference. Some even set this to 0 so that there are no old messages to be found.

I am cleaning up my facebook, and want to know how to actually delete old messages, not just archive them. i cannot find anywhere to simply delete and i would like them off my page permanently.

From the facebook help page:

To permanently delete a conversation from your messages, simply open the conversation, then select "Delete Messages..." from the Actions drop-down menu.

If you click "Delete All" at the bottom of the page, the full conversation history will be permanently cleared from your messages. You can also check the boxes next to individual messages and click "Delete Selected" to permanently delete parts of the conversation.

I can attest to the first one, though i have not seen "Delete all" or the check boxes mentioned in the second paragraph. Admittedly, I didn't look hard.

Delete old messages

When you run your mouse over a message on your wall, a small button should appear on the right saying "Remove" click on that button.

I had the same problem when someone guessed my facebook password and started writing messages to my friends. I found out that I couldn't fully delete the Facebook profile, but I deleted all the information/photos etc and applications and friends from it.
That was before Facebook changed over to the new look, though, but you should still be able to delete all the information..
Hope this helps
