Message Requests

If you’ve been on Facebook for a while, you might have noticed that sometimes your messages mysteriously get ignored. This is because those messages are from people that you’re not friends with.

If you want to make sure that your messages show up on the other person’s account, go ahead and add them as a friend first! You can then message them from within Facebook without issue.

To review these messages, click on the Messages icon on the top left, then click “Message Requests”. Then you can select which messages you want to reply to or ignore.
