Facebook doesn't allow you to send messages directly into inbox of the people who are unknown to you on facebook and your message goes to other folder. Here is a simple trick to directly send message to inbox to any account.

Being the largest social media network, Facebook has become the major source of connecting people online. It has revolutionized the way of texting so a person can easily connect to his loved ones anywhere in the world having only an internet connection and Facebook supporting device. Beside having all facilities which Facebook provides to its users, there always remains somethings which some people don't want to have on Facebook. An example is of Facebook message restrictions. Facebook has set such restrictions on messages that a person cannot send messages directly to Facebook inbox of strangers or the people whom he doesn't know on Facebook. There are two types of message restriction settings in Facebook. One is "basic" and other is "strict".

When a person sets message restriction to basic, he gets messages in Facebook inbox from his friends, mutual friends and people which he might know on Facebook. Setting filtration to "strict" allows only the messages of friends to arrive into inbox.

When someone sends messages on Facebook to any stranger, they first go to "Others" folder and don't appear in Inbox until he replies to the sender. In this way many important messages are left unread. This could be less awful but the heck is that "others" folder can only be accessed via desktop hence those who use Facebook only on mobile can get into trouble by missing important messages.
