Facebook Hidden Folder Controversy: Facebook Hides Your Messages in a Hidden Folder!
This issue was first highlighted by Mashable’s Zoe Fox, which focuses on how Facebook handles some of its Facebook Messages.
If you are signed in your Facebook account, just click on your Facebook Messages link under the “Favorites” section smiling on the left, there would be a list of your messages. If you have a deep look over that list on the left though, you’ll find a new “Other” option has been added. Clicking that will present a new list of messages – messages which Facebook has hidden without your prior permission.
Probably, these hidden messages might be from the brands you have Liked, or messages from folks who are not friends of you on Facebook. It is just a guess but who knows about Facebook’s intention to put these messages in this hidden folder?
It might also be a Gmail-like spam filter – but it has been enabled automatically by Facebook authorities without your consent and…..it is the point where controversy shapes. You might miss a number of useful messages without your intention …………….the messages which were put in the hidden folder “Other”, the folder you may never know if this post isn’t read by you.
Techies describe that Facebook started this all perhaps around May or June, but the main point is why Facebook begin to drop our messages in this new “Other” section without any announcement and users’ permission.
