In case you didn't know, FB has a secret FB inbox. Click messages and you see Inbox and Other.

Click Other - FB does not bother to tell you if anyone has messaged you but you will probably have a message or two.

Reminded of it today by someone who I messaged but did not get it.

Enjoy your messages.

shock I had 89 messages.

Fair amount of crap advert things, a bunch of wooing attempts from random creeps, but loads more from old friends and acquaintances who probably think I am a right rude ignoring wanker now.

Many thanks for the heads up.

Thanks, I got one from an old friend and never knew it! I've sent a friend request to him. grin

Thanks for this. Just checked and (among some other more boring stuff) there was a message from my SIL from months ago.

Thanks for posting this - I've just found a message from my SIL who claimed she wasn't on Facebook! But it won't let me add her as a friend. Any ideas why I can't add her as a friend?

Oh my god! I had dozens gojng back years! Some people asking for advice about something I posted on a forum which were in the summer. Feeling v guilty I missed those hmm
But 5 messages from random guys I don't even know saying I was v beautiful. I am having a truly shot time ATM they cheered me right up!

MrsNPattz Sat 05-Jan-13 22:44:31

I didn't know this either so thanks!

I knew about this just because of selling pages but wow there are some lovely stories here! Hope people can follow up on them!

trockodile Sat 05-Jan-13 21:39:59

Thanks-I found several!

QOD Sat 05-Jan-13 20:59:05

Wow. Loads of spam but a sweet one from my niece that she just thinks I ignored

goodness, I had 34 messages!

ermmm.

I just checked this folder and found a message from my DD's paternal grandmother wanting to meet her. They have never ever shown an interest in her at all despite me saying they were very very welcome. It was dated April 2012. I have replied - I just hope it's not too late!

Thanks for pointing this out. DD turned 12 last week and not knowing this side of her family has always caused her some upset so hopefully this is a step in the right direction.

bit shell shocked now!

I had no idea. I have no messages in there though. Feeling decidedly unpopular!

FrostyWindMadeMoan Sat 05-Jan-13 20:33:51

Thanks SO much for posting this. I had no idea about it. I had several messages going back 3 years.Some lovely ones too. They will have thought I had ignored them. I have replied to them now,but will there be the same problem that they can't see ?

I never knew about that before, I feel awful, there are loads of responses to things that I've posted on places to hook up with people with similar interests and things and I didn't have a clue! There are also loads from people I knew once upon a time. How ridiculous shock

Aha! Now I know why, amongst all the contributors in a magazine I wrote for at the end of 2011, I was the only they didn't ask for an author photo. Turns out they did ask, but it went in there. Thanks for helping clear that up! grin

The rest is all just adverts from pages that I've "liked".

Yeah, I discovered it a while ago! And found a message from my then-to be uni flatmate from before we were going to move in- she'd found me, and I'd (unknowingly) ignored her! S'all good now grin

Rest of mine are event invites from 2008

highlandbird Sat 05-Jan-13 20:15:56

wow, thank you so much Kim for starting this thread, had no idea about this secret inbox....lots of spam stuff in there but also a message from an ex sent a year ago apologising for being an immature twat when we went out 3 years ago shock

Sunnywithshowers Sat 05-Jan-13 20:02:17

How annoying, I have a message but I don't know who it's from!

BelieveInPink Sat 05-Jan-13 19:44:56

This has always been the case but what's annoyed me is that before, my settings were that you couldn't message me unless we were friends. Now everyone can.

nailak Sat 05-Jan-13 19:35:11

i never knew it existed, i had 99 messages!

BatmanLovesSparklyBaubles Sat 05-Jan-13 19:33:52

Thanks for this thread - had a message from an old friend in there.

Sadly no random men chasing after me though sad
