When you post any stuff to your Facebook Wall or even to any of your friend’s pages etc, Facebook gives you the option to erase entries you no longer want to see which is kind of great feature.

Yet, it is often inconvenient when you accidentally delete any important post and want to recover it.

Facebook has strict privacy controls in place that do not allow the retrieval of Wall messages, but if you have the right account settings, you can use a workaround that lets you get back the Wall posts you need.

  • Click the “Messages” icon and then click the “See All Messages” link that displays at the bottom of the drop-down list.
