If you’ve been (secretly) waiting for your ex-boyf to confess undying love to you, we know where his message might be hiding.
We’ve just found out that there’s yet ANOTHER secret mailbox on Facebook, full of two things:
(a) friendly messages you'll feel bad for ignoring
(b) creepy messages you'll be glad you didn't see sooner.
Essentially, Facebook has been filtering your message requests, similarly to the spam folder of your email inbox. What FB doesn't know, is that just because you're not facey friends with Joe Blow down the road, doesn't mean you're not desperately seeking a message from him.
So here's how you get into the secret mailbox:
- Go into the Messenger app
- Tap on the Settings icon
- Tap on “people”
- Tap “Message Requests”
- Scroll to the bottom and tap “See filtered requests”
So there you go. Enjoy your new unfiltered messaging life.
