Facebook and the “Other Message Folder”
Ok this message might be shocking for some of you. Especially for those who create any kind of content for the internet or for those who are on anyway socialized in the internet. More precisely, for those who have connected their private own private Facebook account contact details anywhere in the internet, for example on a blog like in my case!
You always can learn something new. What I learned today… Facebook has something like a message spam folder! You can find it if you click on your message button in Facebook and then on the “Other” tab beside the “Inbox” tab. I have marked it red on the screenshot.
It might not be that new for some of you. But I guess some others like me didn´t even know about this folder. Another Facebook friend who is heavily socialized in the internet, wrote about it today. He has now to answer a thousands of messages as he did link his private Facebook profile on his projects in the web. He simply didn´t know about the folder. Me neither. I had to take a look and found many messages related to my blog and other things I do in the internet.
Ok my friend has now to answer thousands of messages and I did only have to answer thirty or so. But it´s bad anyway that I didn´t know about the folder. I mean I feel bad to the people I didn´t answer timely. Ok, for the future I know where to look for other messages! But I still wonder why I do not get any email notifications when a message arrives in the other tab.
I researched about the notifications for the other inbox. It´s not possible. You need to check your other inbox regularly to find out if there is anything in the folder. But it seems that you get notifications, once you have an active conservation with one of the people from the other inbox.
I just can say that Facebook should implement an option, in case you would like to get notifications for the other inbox as well. The only thing I still should mention is, that it seems that every message which is not from your friend circles on Facebook, will land in the other tab. That does mean every message of a stranger will land there and if you find it out too late, you might have to answer a lot of messages now. I found real messages and not so much spam! So, check it out!
