No, a Facebook message of this sort wouldn't have any binding legal significance. And nobody would legitimately would expect you to waive an inheritance you know nothing about via Facebook. You don't even know who you are really communicating with, but if you were coming into an inheritance, you'd be contacted officially by the executor of the estate via certified mail.
