How to Find Deleted Facebook Comments

By Robert Schrader

When someone comments on a post you've made on Facebook or a photo you've uploaded to the site, Facebook notifies you of this via email. It's possible for a user to delete the comment he added, but the email notification you receive remains. As a result, it's possible to see the comment a user left after he deleted it.

Step 1

Log in to the email account you use with Facebook. Peruse your inbox for messages you've received from Facebook.

Step 2

Switch your view to your "Spam" folder if you don't see messages from Facebook in your inbox. Some email providers automatically send Facebook messages to spam.

Step 3

Click the name of the message that corresponds to the comment that was deleted. View the comment within the message, even after it has been deleted from the site.

Tips & Warnings

  • Although notification of a comment appears in your Facebook notifications folder, you can't see the comment itself there.
