Default 'Other' Folder on FB

So I posted about this on FB but figured I would put it here since it seemed like a number of people I've spoken to didn't know about it. Including me.

So there is an 'Other' folder in your FB messages that seems to hold messages from people that aren't friends or something like that. Seems almost like a spam folder. But Sara just told me to go check it and low and behold there were all these messages going back years from people and I've never seen any of them.

So, if you didn't know about it now you do. And if you did know about it, well then I feel stupid

Wow. I did not know about this. Well, it's a little late to reply now I guess.

Didn't know about this either. I have messaging from everyone enabled and just assumed that I would be notified if I got a message from someone who wasn't a friend, so I only read messages when I'm either on chat or get the notification up top. Turns out I had quite a few I didn't even know about. Thanks, Facebook!

Well....I did not know.

I have a bunch of messages that appear to be sent via text from a phone and need to be downloaded. I don't recognize the numbers, but they are my area code and not unusual looking.

Should I open them?

Good to know I'm not the only one!

I figured I would shout it loud because I feel really bad about all the people I "ignored".

And SevenSins, that is just what I thought too. Makes me feel less snubbed though about the people I messaged that I wasn't friends with and never got a reply back from.

Someone pointed this out to me and a whole bunch of others on Facebook - huge WHOA WHAT? for me. But naturally, while everyone else discovered all sorts of crazy weird messages, I actually didn't have anything interesting. Just one "who are you?" from a dog person I sent a friend request to, and a few notifications from Facebook groups.

Be happy, I had some from people my breeder sent to talk to me about my experiences importing and my dogs. Made me feel all bad.
