Tuesday's Tip - Facebook Messages

Last week I discovered on Facebook a separate message box marked "other". Inside the folder were nearly 120 messages that I have never seen. Some were immediately deleted and others were read and eventually replied to.

I still do not understand of the point of this message box and I still can not find a way of directing this mail to my physical email inbox or message box on Facebook.

To check if you have one of these message boxes -

Open Facebook and click on messages symbol there is should indicate to you that there are two message facilities - one that reads messages and one that reads other.

I am still not sure if I can see the other message box from my iPhone app. If you sent me a message via Facebook and I did not reply this is probably why.

If you have any tips about reading the other messages via iPhone, please leave a comment.


  1. Thanks for this Julie, I found an old message in there. They must have thought I was rude not replying sooner. I wonder why they do this.

  2. Because of this article, I went and looked and found a message in there. Luckily it just came about an hour ago but I would never have seen it if you hadn't mentioned this. And I already know about that weird box but rarely remember to check it! Thank you!

  3. Thank you so so much! I went and looked for my 'Other' folder because you mentioned it - and there was a message in there from an old and dear friend who must have thought I was ignoring her on purpose! And there was stuff in there from two years ago...

    Thank you!

    1. I am glad the post helped. I hope you caught up with your friend.

    Me too...shows how blogging helps us all out. I found some there that people had sent but I knew nothing about! Mind you those three blokes who thought I looked nice seem to have disappeared ;-)

    1. I am heartbroken Pauleen, I thought I was the only one to have such emails - sob! Lol, they disappeared to. I also had several religious ones , whose messages were binned. There was a lovely one in there from an acquaintance - a friend of a friend who I briefly knew who had heard good things of the Book of Me & was offering a booking.


Hello! Thanks for stopping by and choosing to leave a message. I read every message and I usually reply via the comment thread. Posts are currently moderated due to the sudden influx of spam postings!
