You won't see too much spam on Facebook, however. When you do come across the occasional junk message, you can report it to help improve Facebook's spam filter. Marking a message as spam also removes the offending message from your Facebook Messenger inbox. Report Spam in Facebook Messenger If you see a Facebook message that appears to be spam, here's how you can report it to Facebook: Open the message in Facebook Messenger. Tap the sender's name at the top of the screen. Scroll down and select Something's Wrong. Under Let Us Know What's Going On, select Other. Under Is it one of these things?, select Spam. Tap Send Feedback. Facebook is notified and the message disappears from your inbox. Report a Facebook Post as Spam Occasionally, you may run across a post that appears to be spam. To report a Facebook post as spam: Tap the three dots in the upper-right corner of the post. Select Find support or report post. Select Spam > Next. View Messages Labeled as Spam Since Facebook usually identifies most spam messages as soon as they are sent to you, there is a good chance that you will never see any spam that you've received. If you want to view the messages that Facebook considers spam, and recover a message that you accidentally labeled as spam, you'll need to navigate to the Spam folder in Facebook Messenger. Open Facebook Messenger, and tap your profile picture in the upper-left corner. Tap Message Requests. Select Spam. You will see all of the messages that you and Facebook have identified as spam.
