Ignore messages is a Facebook feature that allows users and groups to block messages from being sent to them.
It allows you to silence a specific contact’s notifications without informing them.
The relevant conversation is filtered and moved to Messenger’s ‘Message Request‘ section.
This allows you to see all of your incoming messages without being notified about any of them.
When you read their messages in the ‘Message request’ area, the concerned party will not receive read receipts.
