One of the most popular tricks for Facebook is the one that allows you to read messages without notifying the sender. As you all know, Facebook informs the sender of hour and minute when the recipient opens and reads the message , sending the notification so-called ” seen” , very annoying if you do not want to answer at that precise moment .
The sender, reading the notification “seen at [time]” knows that we have read the message and begins to wonder why we have not responded, and nothing stimulates the imagination of Facebook users more than wondering why the recipient hasn’t responded to the message .
I think Facebook should add a setting that allows you to disable the read notification on messages : it is a clear violation of privacy and can also be a trick to find out if a person is online to Facebook.
Today I am happy to offer you a new solution, valid for mobile phones and devices: find here applications for iOS and Android devices that let you read your messages on Facebook without letting it out to the sender.
How to read the messages without seen notification on iOS (iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch)
If you are an Apple user, and you have an iPhone, an iPad or an iPod touch, the application you need to use is called Unread. It ‘s free and simple to use. You just need to download it, open it and log in with your Facebook account, you will find the messages list(and chat conversations) received on your account and you can open new messages and read it quietly without notifying “seen” to friends. I tested the application on an iPhone 5 and I can assure you that it works perfectly.
