Facebook is a social networking website that offers every registered member the opportunity to send, receive, and archive private messages. This feature works similarly to an e-mail inbox where you can check for any new messages from other users. View your Facebook message list to see at a glance which messages you have already read so you can archive them or focus on the ones you have not read.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Log into your Facebook account.

  2. 2

    Click the "Messages" link on the sidebar of your home screen to see your recent private messages and chat history.

  3. 3

    Look at the message items that do not have a grey background. Message threads that you have previously read have a white background.
