How do I check my message requests on Facebook?
Change platform:Computer help
If someone who you're not connected with on Facebook sends you a message, you'll receive a message request.
To see your message requests on Facebook:
- In the top right of Facebook, click .
- Next to Chats, click at the top.
- Click Message requests.
From here, click on the name of the message request sender and choose to:
- Reply with a message to start a conversation.
- Click I don't want to hear from [Name].
Bear in mind that if you delete a connection request, you won't be able to see the message again. If you want to message someone who sent a request that you deleted, you can send them a message. Your message will go to their connection requests.
