I have 3 Facebook messages that are no longer even in my Facebook messages folder but they keep popping up every 10 minutes or so-why is that?

    Hi Rick - how are they popping up? Do you mean an alert window in the corner of your desktop notifies you about them or are they popping up in another way?

    I'm having the same problem as well. I guess Rick means the notification keeps popping up after a few minutes, and it make us click in but found out there's no new message available.
    Is that a virus or what?

    I have the Facebook messenger app for iPhone. Usually when I swipe the right side of the message and choose archive, the message thread disappears. However, I have one friend who no matter how many times I delete the messages, his always pop back up after I log out and then back in. It doesn't happen to any messages from anyone else. And now we're no longer even friends.
