Yes, Facebook filters your messages; deciding for you, whether to show or not to show certain messages. Since Facebook Messenger app launched in August 9th, 2011, controversy struck the internet regarding the privacy features of the software application.
Just as everything else that trends, the ruckus died down and everyone adapted to Messenger, as a main hub of communication. Facebook notorious for keeping family and friends connected under one gigantic “digital roof”, filters your messages from profiles that aren’t placed on your friends list.
There are instances when Facebook notifies you when someone (non-Facebook friend) messages you, though this doesn’t occur for every message pinging Facebook’s servers. Some messages are placed in a secret location, considered spam– not very convenient if messages contain important information.
Reports show, people missed messages notifying them about a death in family or friends, really creepy messages that make you wonder about humanity, wedding invitations, and long-lost friends trying to reconvene. Ahhh, the irony of Facebook’s purpose for existing
