Hold the phone. You may have zeroed out your Facebook messages but there’s a hidden inbox that may currently be stacked!
Yes, there’s ANOTHER message inbox needing your attention!
This secret folder was brought to my attention via this post online. If it’s news to you, too, get ready for a whole lot of spam, and some important missed messages too!
Upon checking this inbox I literally discovered dozens (yes, dozens!) of missed messages on my phone that have gone unanswered simply because I did not realize they existed! Let me quickly walk you through the steps here and let’s see what you’ve missed, okay?
STEP ONE: Go into your Facebook Messenger App
STEP TWO: Click Settings
STEP THREE: Click People
STEP FOUR: Click Message Requests
STEP FIVE: Click See Filtered Requests
STEP SIX: View, Read, and Respond to your Messages (as you like)!
One additional note: Since you won’t get notifications about these messages, it might still be worth it to make the habit of checking it every now and then. Or, to be even happier, just ditch Facebook and stick to Twitter. 😀 (Follow me while you’re there– @terracecrawford)
