It’s February of 2018 and I’ve been using Facebook for 16 years and just this morning I learned that there are “Filtered” Message Requests. Filtered Requests is defined as people with whom you are not connected to your friends list. There are a couple dozen messages going back to 2009 in my filtered group. Some are spamish, people wanting me to like their page, but several are things people sent me to see if I would like them…. and they’re pretty interesting. I’m embarrassed that I never saw them nor acknowledged them.
You get to them by clicking the messenger button and at the very top clicking Message Requests and See filtered requests. Click image to enlarge.
