Retrive Chat history on Facebook!

Well, it is actually impossible to retrieve chat history on facebook once you hit the "X" on chat window, but recently there is a javascript available that makes the impossible possible.

All you have to do is:

Use the java script given below:


Replace the "Facebook_id" with your friend's id. Your friends id is the number displayed on the page URL on his/her Profile Page, which looks like this http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=592456486&ref=nf

Copy that numbers exactly and replace only the "Facebook_id" on the code, don't replace the brackets and ";" must be there.

Now copy all the script with your friends id and paste it on the browser's address bar then hit enter, the chat window should pop-up with the history on it.

Note: Chat history is cleared every few days, so you can't rely on this code always. But this code works perfectly for recent history.
