If you’ve been using Facebook for a while, you probably have a lot of unread messages and you don’t even know you have them. These messages are in Message Requests (also known as Other).

To review these messages, click the Message icon in the top corner of Facebook’s main interface (the Messenger icon is in the middle). By default you will see the tab Recent (recently) on the inbox.
