Are You Reading All of Your Facebook Messages?
“hiya Amy. you appear sensational. email me. my emai is [redacted] for my personal images. make sure to send it there and not through FB.”If you’re a brand page holding frequent events, this messaging system has obvious ramifications for you: people aren’t seeing your messages! The “other messages” is basically Facebook’s spam folder. Is there anything you can do about it? For your Facebook profile: As of right now, there are no settings to change for your “Other messages” folder the way you can for your regular messages. This means you can’t get notified when you receive a message to this folder, or indicate which messages should go where. The only thing you can really do is remember to check both messages folders on a regular basis. For your Facebook brand page: Just like the Facebook profile, there are no settings to adjust to for brand pages. If your messages are bound to go to the Facebook version of the spam folder and there’s nothing you can do about it, the obvious solution is to stop sending people messages. If you have something important that you want people to see, post it to the news feed where people will see it. What do you think? Are you annoyed that you’ve been missing some of your messages, or are you happy that unwanted messages aren’t clogging up your inbox? Did you find anything important that you’d missed when you checked the “Other messages” folder or just a bunch of spam? Let us know!
