Facebook has become an integral part of everyone’s lives due to the phenomenon called social networking. One can argue that the biggest thing to happen to social media and social  networking is Facebook, and they would be right. Whats more is that the company has cemented its feet into the social scene further after the recent acquisitions of Instagram and WhatsApp, making it also one of the most rounded out platforms on the internet and a content creator’s paradise.

The Facebook Messenger is the default chat messenger where you have all your conversations on the Facebook platform. It is highly sophisticated and also comes with a lot of security and privacy features that ensure a very safe and hassle-free chat experience. These features come at a cost wherein you simply cannot recover your deleted conversations.
