Facebook To Remove The ‘Other’ Folder From Messages. Bye-Bye Random Strangers.

If you have a lot of free time to kill and no particular aim in life, take a dig at your ‘other’ folder in Facebook.

This other folder is like tonsils in our throat, it block the unnecessary stuff from entering our system and in return it faces the toxicity of those germs itself. The tell tales of creeps and stalkers flocking this folder are common among many groups.

However, this brave warrior that kept our stalkers and haters at bay and pampered our narcissistic selves by reminding us that the attention is still on us is soon going to bid adieu to us.


Forget phone numbers! Today, we’re excited to start rolling out Message Requests for Messenger. We truly want to make…

David Marcus, the mind behind Facebook messenger has announced in his latest post that this folder is soon going to become obsolete.

Long story short:
– Others folder is now going to disappear!
– Instead, you will have message requests from people who are not friends with you but wish to contact you
– The person sending the request will not know if you have read (or ignored) the message
– Normal chat threads will continue as it is

David calls it a more than a small change and announces this as a foundation of how we are going to communicate in the future. (Telepathy, maybe?)

So till your stalkers find a new way to send you Heyssss and Ssupss, breath in peace!

(Because they are going to be back)
