We’re about to share with you something that will change your life, probably. There is a whole treasury of hidden Facebook messages in your inbox you didn’t even know existed.
We know that sounds doubtful and too strange to be true. But stay with us, and we’ll help you expose them.
Okay, so you know how there’s a “message request” box in your Facebook messenger inbox where you can either accept or deny messages from people who aren’t your friends? Well, Facebook does some filtering of its own to choose which messages even pop up in that request section in the first place. Think of it like your email robotically examines out spam.
These capitals there are possibly a huge mass of unseen and unanswered messages that didn’t make the “message request” cut. But, hey, who knows? Some of them might be useful.
We just gone through all the steps and found so many messages. Let’s get you started so you can make the absurd expression to believe this article.
Step 1: Click on your Messenger app and go to the Settings button at the top (or bottom, depending on whether you’re using Apple or Android).
Step 2: Then go to “People”
Step 3: Click on “Message requests”
Step 4: From there, scroll to the bottom of the page where you’ll see a button “See filtered requests.”
Just go ahead and explore with your eyes to believe this.
This is a great thing to know about if you use Facebook for work. There may be people trying to get in touch with you who don’t have your email or phone number. Of course, please don’t be surprised when you see how many weirdos have been trying to contact you about your cat’s nighttime habits. But hey, we’re pretty used to the bizarre stuff online by now. It comes with the territory.
