Hidden Facebook Features You Should Know

 

Facebook has been leading the field of social media for ages. People behind it managed to reinvent this platform repeatedly to cater to the demands of its users. The business model has immensely transformed to more than just the typical Facebook.com.  This is only natural since Facebook is employing the service of the top program engineer in the world. The website has become multi-faceted and complex. As a matter of fact, there is much stuff that you can do with Facebook, and you are probably not aware of them all. These features don't require add-ons or third-party apps.

 

The Message Request Feature

 

Hidden Facebook Features

If you have been a member of the social networking platform for quite some time now, your inbox is probably full of messages from your friends. However, did you know that you have a separate inbox for people who aren't your friend? You might want to check that and see if there are any old friends you have missed. Simply click the message icon, and it will show you the most recent messages in your inbox. A little to the right would be the Message Request. After clicking this, the tab will show you a notification saying 'See Filtered Request.' Tick that, and you will be able to see your other messages.

 

Find Out Who Is Snooping on Your Facebook Account

 Hidden Facebook Features

If you want to know if someone is logging in to your FB account without giving any permission, Facebook has a security feature that can help you find out. Go to the Setting Page and find the Security option. In this option, you will see the different places you logged in. The system will show you a list of locations where you accessed your account and the device you used. If you find something you don't recognize, end the activity for the particular browser or device.

 

The Pirate Speak

 Hidden Facebook Features

Ten years ago, pirate was a big thing, and the Engineers of Facebook will not be left behind with this craze. They added a feature to translate the Facebook interface into Pirate Speak (upsidedown speak). In case you are curious about it, go to the General Setting. Find the Language option and find the English Pirate option.

 

Saving Post for Later

 

Have you ever found a post that you want to read but do not have the time? Facebook saw the need for this feature and added the 'Save for Later'; unfortunately, not everyone is aware of it. Click the small arrow that you will commonly find in the post's upper right corner. Choose Save Link, and the link will be sent to the saved folder.

 

Adding Security

 Hidden Facebook Features

It is important to ensure that your Facebook account is secured. There are a couple of things that you can do, which you can find under the Settings and then choose Security and Login. You have the option to add two-factor authentication and receive alerts if there are any unauthorized logins. You should also designate at least three contacts you trust should you get locked out.

 

These are just a couple of the hidden Facebook features that you should be aware of. Keep posted for more secrets of Facebook that will interest you.
