How to delete messages from my IPad

Hi everyone

Can anyone tell me how to delete Facebook messages from my IPad, I have deleted them from my Facebook on my Mac PC but they are still showing on my IPad! Any ideas? Thanks Gordie

My understanding is that it should automatically sync ie delete from one and it is deleted from the other. However I am unable to currently check as I deleted a Facebook message from my desktop and now when I try to view messages on the Facebook App on either my iPad or iPhone the app immediately crashes. Upgraded to iOS 6.1 today and wonder if that is relevant to my crashes.

Now I've got it working and they should sync automatically.

Touch and hold on a message should bring up delete.

I find the Facebook App a bit hit and miss.

The Facebook app is today displaying deleted and archived messages on my iPhone but not on my iPad. After reading one of the supposedly deleted messages it then became deleted.

I think that your problem and mine is down to a buggy app.

Woolwell Many thanks for your help, so far no joy....I have taken out Facebook and reloaded it, but still the same... it may right itself eventually! Regards Gordie
