Here’s a feature of Facebook that you may not be aware of. There’s a centralized place to see important messages about your Facebook account, check your messages from the help team, and also to get updates on things you may have reported to Facebook. It’s called the Support inbox. You can access it by clicking the little arrow in the upper-right of your Facebook page and choosing Support inbox from the drop-down menu.
