People Have Been Messaging You On Facebook And You Had NO Idea

So unbeknownst to us mere mortals, it appears that the Social Media site has been hiding a whole host of our messages without our knowledge... but don't worry, we're here to help you uncover them.

Right, so are you ready for us to go all detective, because here's what's been going down...

You know the 'message request' box in your messenger inbox? You know, the bit that allows you to either accept or deny messages from people who're aren't officially your Facebook friends? 

Well, it turns out Faceybees does a bit of sorting itself before these messages even get to you in the first place.

"It's an outrage!" we hear you cry. "These messages were meant for us... it's time to reclaim them and take back what's rightfully ours!"

Okay, okay we hear you, we promise. Buuuut, try to see it as a sort of helpful spam filter. 

However, this implies that there are unseen messages that didn't quite make it through the first stage of cuts, right? 

But what if there was something important in those unanswered messages? That flirty message from the guy you gave your number to in the coffee shop that time that you thought never bothered contacting you? Christ, you could have been headhunted for the role of Queen of the World and you wouldn't be any the wiser!
