The social giant bringing an update to its Messages feature by adding filters which will help users in solving the problems of finding messages that they have in their inbox with them. The company has set up two new up-front filters with replacing its “Who can send me Facebook Messages” setting.

The two filters will work like the way as below:

Basic Filtering involves allowing mostly messages from Facebook friends and people you may know (e.g. “friends of friends”) in your inbox. By default, anyone in the current Messages setting that has “friends of friends” or “everyone” set will have this setting.

Strict Filtering is a “friends only” setting so anyone you’re not Facebook friends with will most likely be sent to the Other messages folder.
