How To Mute Someone On Facebook Messenger – Facebook has introduced a new Facebook mute conversation button on Facebook Messenger. When using the social media platform, you may not want to be distracted by beeps and notifications from people messaging you on Facebook. The most common reason that someone would delete and specifically mute a Facebook Messenger chat would be due to group chats.
Often people are brought together by friends on Facebook when trying to organize a Facebook event (birthday party, work conference, music festival, etc.). Although the information can be useful, there are usually a few chatty Facebook members who comment and type until the repeated message alert sound makes you literally want to throw your laptop out of the window. Muting a conversation on Facebook Messenger allows this stream to act silently, without having to offend anyone by telling them to stop chatting or deleting them.
The idea behind muting someone on Facebook means that you won’t receive notifications of new messages that have been sent. You may be wondering, if you mute someone on Facebook Messenger will they know? No, they won’t. This is partly of the point of the Facebook feature. There is no alert or hack on Facebook to know exactly who has muted you.
Muting someone on Facebook Messenger allows you to effectively ignore Facebook Messenger messages from that person. You won’t receive notifications when that person sends you a new message, but those messages will continue to be listed in your Facebook Messenger conversation list with a Mute icon next to them. Additionally, whoever you mute will not be notified, and will have no way to know, you’ve muted them.
