Facebook Messenger allows you to chat with Strangers without being Friends, Does this sounds strange? Off course not because Facebook Messenger allows you to chat with strangers.
The most common problem that People usually face on social media websites like Facebook is receiving messages or friend requests from strangers which you don’t know. This functionality was already there in Facebook Messenger that you can chat with strangers, but now Facebook has added a new feature which will help Facebook Messenger users to know details about Stranger that with whom you are chatting. So you can still chat with people who are not on your friend list but you can explore details about them by just knowing their names. Hence no more any stranger will be bothering you on Messenger.
The new feature that Facebook will be rolling out over the next several days is known as “Message Requests”.
What this feature will do is that it will show you messages from people you have never interacted with and you can then decide whether you should continue chatting or ignore. The messages from strangers will be shown in Message Requests.
Currently, Facebook puts all the stranger messages in the”other” section of the inbox which doesn’t show any notification to the users about those incoming messages from outside source. However, in order to send a direct message to someone’s folder the sender has to pay $1 to Facebook.
But, with this new feature users will be notified about any new message and will also have the opportunity to sneak out the time wasters.
David Marcus, who is the head of the Facebook messenger, writes:
“Now, the only thing you need to talk to virtually anyone in the world is their name.”
He further writes on his Facebook post that this feature will only be applied to a new message received on Facebook while previous chats will not be affected.
Lastly, he hinted on more exciting features rolling out on in the Facebook messenger as his team’s aim is to make the chatting experience on a Facebook lot more convenient and exciting.
So let’s enjoy this feature to know strangers who are irritating you from long time on Facebook.
