How to Mark a Message Unread on Facebook
Facebook is one of the highly used social media platforms with over two billion active users. Like other messaging platforms, Facebook allows users to communicate with each other through messages, and it’s easy to miss or forget to respond to some of the messages. Fortunately, Facebook has a feature that enables a user to mark a message as unread, allowing them to revisit the message later and respond accordingly. Here’s how to mark a message unread on Facebook.
The first step is to open the Facebook Messenger app or the Facebook website and go to your messages inbox. Locate the conversation that you want to mark as unread. Tap and hold the conversation if you are using the Messenger app or hover over the conversation on the website to reveal more options.
Once the options appear, select “Mark as Unread.” The message will be marked as unread, and a blue dot will appear next to the message to remind you that you have an unread message. The contact who sent the message will also receive a notification that the message is unread.
To mark a message as unread on the Facebook website, hover over the conversation, and click on the three dots that appear on the right side of the conversation. In the drop-down menu, select “Mark as Unread.” The message will be marked as unread, and a blue dot will appear next to the conversation.
In case you want to mark the message as read again, follow the same steps and select “Mark as Read.” The blue dot will disappear, indicating that you have read the message.
Marking a message unread is an excellent way to keep track of important conversations that you may not have time to respond to immediately. It’s also an effective way to remind yourself to follow up on a conversation. The feature is available on both the Messenger app and the Facebook website, allowing users to mark messages as unread conveniently.
In conclusion, Facebook’s messaging feature is a great way to communicate with friends, family, and colleagues, and we all at times have to keep tabs on some messages that we might have read but not replied. The ability to mark messages as unread on Facebook is handy as it enables you to revisit the conversation later and respond accordingly. Following the simple steps outlined in this article will help you take full advantage of this feature.
