Before moving on to the practical side of the question, let me elaborate on the time issue mentioned in the opening bars of the guide.
As mentioned, if you want to recover deleted posts from Facebook, there is a maximum time frame within which we must act. Going more specifically, Facebook has established that content previously published and then deleted from your Diary can be restored within 30 days from the actual elimination. Posts deleted for more than 30 days are permanently removed automatically and are therefore irrecoverable.
When you delete content posted to your Journal, Facebook moves it to a private area, called Trash can, which is visible only to you. This section of your profile is accessible via the function Registro atasità account. Haven't you ever heard of it? I'll briefly explain what it is then. The Facebook activity log is a sort of "history" of all the operations performed on the social network.
“Like”, comments, reactions, personal information, searches made, logins and disconnections, friend requests received and sent: all this and more can be viewed thanks to the functionality I'm talking about. The Activity Log offers you a summary of the operations you have carried out, showing you from the most recent to the most remote, and also allows you to remove or hide the various contents published on the Diary from the Diary.
I will explain in the next chapters how to access the Activity Log to restore deleted posts on smartphones, tablets and computers. I also inform you that you have the possibility to recover content deleted from the Diary even if yours account have been eliminated (provided that the cancellation of the post and that of the account took place within the aforementioned period of 30 days).
In this case, you will first need to restore your Facebook account: to know how to do this, read this tutorial. Through the settings of your Facebook account, you can also create a copy of the data and content relating to your profile, including all post published. I will dedicate the last few chapters of this guide to show you how this option works.
