    We all have read so much about smartphone addiction, and how we too have fallen in the trap over the years of technological advancements. We as Indians possess profound love for social media – Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Google+ and many more. I personally am a Facebook fanatic and my constant wandering over the app has lead me to discover 5 rare yet interesting features most of us never knew existed. Check out the list…

    1. Send files

    Facebook messenger today is the second name of communication. While we seamlessly share images, emojis and GIFs to friends via individual or group chats, what about sending larger files and documents? Well, there’s a little secret to that too! Here are the steps-

    • Go to Facebook messenger and select a contact to start a conversation
    • Tap the “More” option

    • Tap on “Open” in front of the Dropbox

    • Select the files to be sent.
    • Dropbox will create a link for you to share it with your contacts on messenger.

    2. Trusted contacts

    With this feature, Facebook lets you to select a trusted contact who can help you in generating the security codes and login key etc. in case you don’t have an access to internet, email or messaging. To choose a trusted contact, follow these steps-

    • Go to “Help and Settings”
    • Select “Account Settings”
    • Tap on “Security”
    • Find “Your Trusted Contacts” in the displayed list and tap on it
    • Tap “Choose Trusted Contacts” and select the names from your contact list

    3. Legacy contact

    Facebook now allows choosing a legacy contact who may take necessary actions in case of mishaps like death. A legacy contact can inform Facebook and ask the account to be taken down, accept friend requests, inform contacts and change display pictures on someone’s behalf. He/she may however not use your identity to perform these tasks. To choose a legacy contact, here’s what you need to do-

    • Go to “Help and Settings” in the Menu
    • Then select “Account Settings”
    • Tap on the “Security” option
    • Find “Legacy Contact” in the displayed list and tap on it
    • Choose a contact name from your friends
    • Send them an automated message to let them know they’ve been chosen

    4. Message Requests

    While the messages from your contacts land directly into your messenger inbox, there are other message requests from those who aren’t friends with you. Facebook purposely screens out these messages from your inbox and keeps them in a separate section, which you may want to check out once in a blue moon, if not always. Here’s how you can do it-

    • Open Messenger
    • In the menu, tap “Message Requests”
    • Go to “Filtered Requests” and tap “See all”

    5. Where you’re logged in

    Being gadget freaks, we keep logging in to our Facebook accounts from several phones, laptops and PCs, and would stay logged in without knowing. And every time you log in, it becomes an active session. If you want to log out of these devices and protect yourself from prospective spies, follow these steps-

    • Go to “Help and Settings”
    • Then “Account Settings”
    • Tap “Security”
    • Select “Where You’re Logged In”
