Facebook Messenger’s Hidden Messages!

April 7, 2016|Posted in: Techy

As if we aren’t already annoyed that Facebook continuously changes the rules for messaging.  First it’s a completely different app – which I’m still getting used to.  And now, those messages that people send you outside your squad… oh that’s right. You don’t know about them because they’re HIDDEN.

I found out about them when I’d had a few moms contact me from mom groups.  I personally had thought “what message?” and that mommy brain caught the best of them.

Here are some step-by-step instructions to see those messages.  ****WARNING *** It will blow your mind!

1. When you open your messenger, you will be defaulted to your screen of messages.  Click on the “Settings” gear at the bottom right.
