The social giant Facebook has two inbox. There’s the main inbox and one more hidden inbox is there called ‘Other’ inbox. The site ‘Other’ inbox is where you’ll find all your messages and mails from the users that are not your ‘Friend’ on Facebook until and unless the user didn’t pays $1 to send it to your main folder. OR we can say that the Facebook’s other folder is the place where you’ll find the messages and email that have been filtered out of your inbox according to your Messaging filter setting i.e the Basic or Strict filtering, you can get more information about it here.
If a user tries to send you message that is not your friend on Facebook, will get a pop up asking for either pay $1 to send the message to your main folder or the message will dropped in your ‘Other’ inbox. And According to the social network site -“This inbox feature is part of a measure to prevent users from spam”
