I know Facebook isn’t really going after Microsoft Outlook, but the fact of the matter is that the Facebook platform replaces almost all personal e-mail for Genderations X & Y. Just as with e-mail, some Facebook messages are just FYI’s and some need follow-ups. However, Facebook doesn’t distinguish between the two. My suggestion to FB — add a checkbox somewhere at the end of each message to designate messages as needing a follow up.

Then, give me some way to filter my messages so that I can see all the messages that still need a response.

Seems pretty simple to me — I hope someone at Facebook is reading this.
