How to Mark as Spam in Facebook Messages


You will and possibly do see much in Facebook: notifications, news, messages from friends and emails of all sorts. What you should — and, typically, will — see sparingly is genuine spam.

This, I course, is thanks to Facebook Messages's handsomely capable spam filter. When you do come across the occasional junk mail or message, you can help improve that filter and remove the offending message from your inbox in one go.

Mark as Spam in Facebook Messages

To report an email or direct message as spam for the Facebook Messages junk mail filter:

  • Open the message or conversation in Facebook Messages.
  • Click Actions.
  • Select Report as Spam… from the menu that comes up.
  • Click Report as Spam.
