The question has been closed for the following reason "Actual question is about hacking Facebook accounts" by grahamb 01 Jul '15, 04:32

Check if you have packets being sent to the Facebook IP at all, and what port it is. My guess is that it'll show as TCP port 443, which would mean HTTPS. Which would mean the communication is encrypted. Which would mean you can't read anything, including cookies. So filters for HTTP cookies won't work.

Depends. If it is your own traffic you could try to decode the encryption. There are some articles and tutorials on how to do that with Wireshark, but you'll need session or server keys.

If it's not your traffic and have no access to the secret keys the answer is simple: you can't do anything.

Run the connection through a MITM proxy such as Fiddler to get the decrypted stream. See for more info.

ok but i hve seen some videos that they easily use to capture facebook packets by writing the same thing that i have written...why they are able to capture?

What date do they have? Likely that they are old and from prehistoric times when we didn't use HTTPS everywhere.

You'll have to go and look elsewhere for Facebook account hacks.
