Can Facebook determine the IP address of a message sent from another Facebook user who is not my friend?

What do you plan on doing with the IP address? You know that it's pretty much useless, right?

No, you would not "know who ip address it is" but it doesnt matter because you can't get the iP address from Facebook.

Re: Facebook Messages IP address
Someone created a fake account pretending to me me/a friend of mine and is using it to harass people in my life. Unfortunately these people have never be able to respond because the person sends a message then deletes their profile. Only reopens it when they send the other message. Is there any way I can find the location/IP address of this person?

Yes, but it will take either a law enforcement request or a court order/subpoena to get the IP from Facebook, then a subpoena to the ISP that owns the IP to get customer iinformation.

Law enforcement won't help me as I'm not the direct victim and the direct victims don't want to get involved with the police.

I hate to be the one to burst your bubble, but without a court-order to the ISP that owns the IP address, you wiill never be able to get any information about that guy. If it was that easy you would not see so much online bullying and so many asshats online..
Sorry tough guy.. You're going to have to find another way to impress your lady..

I already found the area he stays in. He deleted all the messages he sent and said he was sorry. He was acting as an aid for her ex boyfriend. Everything is resolved and we both are finally in peace. Got my IT bud to give me a hand and solved everything. Thanks anyway gentleman twas a nice chat. why'all have a good day now.

Re: Facebook Messages IP address

The IP address would be tied to the device from the network.

The process is to contact your local law enforcement agency. Once they determine that a crime has or may have been committed and once they determine that it is worth investigating, they will submit the request.

How long it takes and how much it costs, I do not know, but you cannot simply "buy" a law-enforecment request..

Alternatively you could hire an attorney to request a court-order or subpoena, which would no doubt be very expensive.

Remember that no matter how you get the IP address, it is pretty much useless without also getting a court-order or submitting a law-enforcment request to in the internet provider for the customer information of whoever was using the IP address at that time.

Re: Facebook Messages IP address

Your question is still unclear, confusing and only about 1/4 English, but i'm going to take a crack at it:

When the sim is changed or even when the phone is powered off, then back on, the IP address will likely change, but that does not matter. The cellphone company still has records of what IP was used by any customer at any given time.

The cell service provider cannot determine what apps are installed or being used.. and, the word you are struggling with is "that", not "dat".

That depends on the person that got the messages or photographs and what the messages said.. and what the pictures were.

You can only get the IP address by submitting a law enforcement request or by getting a court order.

Re: Facebook Messages IP address

Even when an account id deactivated, Facebook still has the info.
The process of submitting a law enforcement request is up to the police. You would have to ask them what the status is.

Using two accounts on one device would have the same IP address, unless the IP address of the device changes, which happens often on mobile devices.

Re: Facebook Messages IP address

what if that acct that was used from harassing was already deactivated, and the other account that was used in the same mobile is still active, does the IP address of the messages sent to him changes overtime if he keeps chatting to the victim? or is it the same?

because i read that if you put your phone on an airplane mode, its IP address changes.

Re: Facebook Messages IP address

Facebook would have a record of the IP address that was used to send any particular message.

Basically, the IP address is near useless without additional court orders to the Internet Service Provider that owns that IP address forcing them to turn over information about who the customer that was using the IP address at that particular moment.
