How to Discover your “Other” Facebook Inbox

Question MarkDid you know that your Facebook account has two message inboxes?

There’s the standard inbox – where you get messages from friends. But there’s also the “Other” inbox, where messages from Pages you’ve “Liked” and people you’re not yet connected to on Facebook go to.

Finding your “Other” inbox

Unlike your standard inbox – which Facebook notifies you whenever you’ve received a message to – the “Other” inbox fills up without you receiving any notifications.

Go ahead and check it now, I bet it’s full of messages going back months and months that you weren’t aware of!

To see your “Other” inbox…

1.  When logged into Facebook, within your Favourites on the left-hand side of the screen, click on the “Messages” link

2. A new “Other” link will appear besides the “Inbox” link. Click the “Other” link.

3. On the right hand side, your “Other messages” will now appear.


Sadly I’ve not found a way to be notified when messages appear in your “Other” inbox – but at least now you’re aware of it you can check it from time to time so you don’t miss anything important!

How to see all the pages you Like on Facebook

Facebook Like ButtonI was recently asked by a fellow Facebook user on how they could view all the pages they’d hit for the “Like” button on Facebook.

Sometimes you hit “Like” on a product or service, only to become increasingly annoyed with spam-like over frequent updates – in which case you “un-like” it!

At first glance, it’s not simple to work out how to see a history of your “Likes”. Certainly, at the time of writing there was no Facebook help article on how to do this.

So here’s how you can do it.

Seeing all the pages you Like

1. Once logged into Facebook via a web-browser, click the your Profile name link in the top right hand corner.

2. From the top profile menu, click Update Info.

3. Scroll to the bottom of the page and find the Likes section. Click the More menu and select Other Likes.

4. From here you can see all the pages you have Liked on Facebook. If you want to “Unlike” a page, click on the page icon to visit that page and then click the blue Liked icon. From the drop-down menu, click Unlike.

It’s easy to end up disliking a product or brand that you’ve previously liked on Facebook. Using this method, you can keep your likes current, and unlike those pages you no longer want to hear from!
