For a quite long time, spammers and unknown message senders find it easy to disturb other users of Facebook and other social apps.
Users find it quite uncomfortable, receiving inappropriate and harassing messages from the spammers.
But, since the launch of ‘Message Request’ option, it has become much helpful to let users allow only messages they want to respond.
Through the ‘Message Request’ feature, only those senders will be able to chat or poke the user once he/she accepts the message request or else those messages will rest in the request folder.
Facebook Messenger offers users the ability to quickly and easily connect people around the globe.
All you need is a person’s profile information to send the message.
Unfortunately, this also poses risks for those with ill-intentions to contact unsuspecting people.
