Messenger lets you chat with your Facebook contacts, but also with other users. When a person who is not friends with you on Facebook wrote to you on Messenger for the first time, his message is not in your usual discussions: he moved automatically in another section of Messenger and you do not receive notification . These are “filtered messages,” which also include spam or advertising pages. If this feature is useful to avoid the unknown intrusions, it can also make you miss potentially important messages. It is therefore advisable to consult these messages regularly, as well as the section dedicated to spam to your mailbox. The handling differs depending on whether you use the web version of Facebook Messenger or mobile, but it is very simple.
Note that notifications are then displayed normally as soon as you start to talk to a user who don ‘ not friend with you
