MIAMI (WSVN) — In case you weren’t aware, Facebook has a hidden in-box that automatically filters messages that it thinks may be spam.

On Facebook there is your normal in-box where you message your friends. There is also a "Message Requests" in-box that shows messages that you can either accept or ignore. Then there is the "Filtered Requests" in-box. In order to see those messages, you just have to click a few settings to see them:

Step 1: Open the Messenger App or Click the Message tab from a computer.

Step 2: Click "Settings" and look for "People" (computer users skip to step 3)

Step 3: Click "Message Requests"

Step 4: Click "See Filtered Requests"

The messages may be nothing but actual spam, but you never know if there is a message from somebody that you may have wanted to read.
