Facebook confirms years-old messages are randomly coming back to haunt users

Facebook users report one of the unfamiliar bugs that plague the platform of old messenger threads that are automatically repackaged without context or explanation. The first user reported on Twitter this company now checks that old messages are treated as unread messages and appear on the Messenger tab on Facebook.com. However, the explanation is still difficult to grasp.

"Some people are seeing old messages on Facebook.com, we are aware of this issue and are actively working to resolve the issue as soon as possible," a Facebook spokesperson said. " Sorry for the inconvenience."

Some people expressed concern that bugs could rediscover conversations or previous records. Unless you actively delete users and other users' records, Messenger keeps the entire conversation back and forth and continues for years. There may be a person who knocks down an old thread that has lost a former family member or friend.
