One of the latest news about Facebook —one of the biggest social media in today’s era— is the news about how Facebook’s other inbox will be phased out. You may not have been aware of this fact, though. This is mainly because many people are still not fully aware of the existence of this inbox. In fact, there are two inbox in your facebook account. The first one is the primary inbox, while the other one is the other inbox. The first inbox is the place where you get messages from people you are friend with, while the second one is from people you are not friend with.
The problem is that, more often than not, these messages coming from people you do not know are annoying and unpleasant. There has been a lot of complaints coming from facebook users on how people use Facebook’s other inbox to send harassment and spams. This makes many users highly uncomfortable of using their facebook account anymore. The same problem haunts the facebook users who run a group. Because of this other inbox, they are affected since they frequently communicate with those people they are not friends with.
Another problem is how this other inbox is used to send creepy messages and online fraud to your message. You can surely ignore the message intentionally, but when these people keep sending you the message, that is so annoying. Facebook is supposed to be the place where you can have fun and enjoy your online friendship network. Considering all of these comments and complaints, Facebook now will phase out this feature from its system. This way, people that you do not know will not be able to send you annoying and unimportant messages anymore. All they can do is just sending you a friend request before they can send you a message, why by the way you can accept or reject easily.
However, in fact, this feature is not always so bad in fact. For your information, other inbox can be used to tell people you know, but you are not so sure that he/she is going to remember you. That way, you can send him/her about yourself and ask him/her to approve your friend request as soon as possible. Unfortunately, this feature is not used for its initial intention. In the near future,facebook’s other inbox will be phased out and no strangers can send you a message anymore!
