How to find the Facebook “Other” Inbox

By contributing writer Lana (like banana)

Did you know Facebook has a secret? It has two message inboxes. When we started our own Facebook Garage Sale group, we learned about this secret inbox the hard way.

Everyone kept saying they sent us a message, but we couldn’t find it. I didn’t want to personally become friends with everyone, and I found that this is a great solution. Unfortunately, many people don’t know it is there. I had tons of messages in mine, when I finally found it. I wish someone would have shared this information sooner.
