The Facebook inbox has sorting and management features to help keep your messages organized. When you’re finished working with a message, you can archive the thread to free up room in your inbox. Archiving removes message threads from view without permanently deleting them. You can see archived messages with just a few clicks.
Log in to your Facebook account and select the “Messages” icon in the upper-right corner of any page.
Click the “See All” link at the bottom of the list. Select the “More” option beside the Inbox heading on the resulting page.
Select “Archived” from the drop-down menu to see a complete list of all archived messages. Click on a message to view the complete thread.
