Are Facebook chats public?

Your Facebook chat and messaging sessions are kept private between you and the other recipients. The interactions cannot be seen by anybody who is not a participant in the chat. This includes people on the Facebook network as well as those on other social media sites.

You can talk privately with up to 10 different people at a time through Facebook's free online chat service. You can also send files such as images, videos, or documents. If you have an account, you can also post comments on your friends' photos, share links to websites, and play games together via webcam.

There are two ways to participate in a Facebook chat: you can use either the desktop website or the mobile app. It is possible to switch back and forth between the two without any problems.

The first step to having a private conversation on Facebook is to create an account if you don't already have one. Next, you will need to add some friends who will be able to join your chat. Once this is done, you can start chatting with them just like you would email them over the web.

Facebook chats are very easy to set up and there is no requirement to communicate with anyone else outside of your friend list. Therefore, it is important to choose friends carefully before joining their conversations.

What do chat and messages do on Facebook?

Facebook chat and messages enable you to connect with your Facebook friends discreetly. Chats and messages, unlike other items you publish on Facebook such as status updates or images, will not be shared with all of your friends or put on your timeline. Rather than creating a public post, chats and messages are sent privately between you and one or more friends.

You can start a private conversation with someone by clicking their name in the drop-down menu at the top of your screen. Then type your message into the text box that appears. Click Send when you're done typing so you don't miss out on any important information they may have said after you started your message.

Your friend will receive your message within 24 hours unless they are away from their computer, in which case it might take them a little longer. If they want to respond immediately they can click the Message Me button which will open up a new window with only the messaging form visible. They can then reply directly from there without having to open up another chat session.

If they don't want to engage in a direct conversation but would like to know what you've been up to lately, then they can use the Messages feature for that. Clicking on their name will bring up a list of all the messages they have sent and received.

Are Facebook Marketplace chats private?

Messages in the Facebook marketplace are private. A private conversation on Messenger, according to Facebook, is end-to-end encrypted and designed just for you and the merchant you're interacting with. There are no servers that store your messages.

Where are the hidden Facebook messages?

To see all archived Facebook chat chats, go here. Then, under the left menu, select Messenger. Click on the upper left, next to "Chats." "Hidden Chats" will be shown. These are all of the private conversations that were not shared with everyone in your contact list. They can be read by anyone with the link provided during their creation.

Where do my Facebook messages go if I’m not on Facebook?

All other messages will go into another folder where you can look at them separately. If someone you know isn't on Facebook, that person's email will initially go into the "other" folder. You can easily move that conversation into the Inbox, and all the future conversations with that friend will show up there.

Conversations in the Other folder won't disappear even if you stop using Facebook for a time. They'll be there when you come back to Facebook.

Your Other folder is different from your Spam folder. Messages put into the Spam folder aren't ever seen by anyone except Facebook staff, so they don't get moved out of the Spam folder.

The Other folder is useful for discussions that you want to have away from Facebook. For example, you could use the Other folder to communicate with friends who are on Twitter but not Facebook, or without being seen by their regular Facebook contacts.

Can you chat privately on Facebook?

The secret messenger function on Facebook allows users to communicate in a totally private and closed-off discussion. Secret Conversations allow two friends to communicate in an encrypted location that no one else, including Facebook, can see. The only people who can read the messages are the participants.

To start a secret conversation, select two friends from your contact list and click on the blue button labeled with an eye symbol. You will be presented with a screen where you can type away freely without being seen by anyone except for your two friends. They will only see that you have been active on Facebook but not what you write or talk about.

You cannot end a secret conversation yourself. If you want to stop it, you need to send your friends a message saying so. This can be done via email or by using the text feature on the Facebook page.

Secret conversations are great for keeping things discreet between partners, families, friends, etc. Who knows how long they will remain hidden? As long as nobody mentions the conversation, then it can always be brought up again later.

Where are the Facebook private messages?

Private communications are only visible in your Facebook inbox or the Messenger app. They can't be read by anyone else. Private messages also cannot be found in Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, or any other third-party site or application.

Are Facebook Messenger conversations private?

According to Bloomberg, while Messenger discussions are private, Facebook monitors them and use the same techniques to prevent abuse as it does on the social network as a whole.
