By default, Facebook allows both fans and non-fans to send direct messages to Pages.

Page owners cannot initiate direct messages to Fans; they can only respond to inbound messages.

Unread messages will appear under the "Unread" heading on the right side of your Page.

Mouse over the number of unread messages to reveal a window with all the messages users have sent to you.

To respond to a message, click it, type your response and press "reply." The message will then appear in the "messages" section of a user's personal profile.

Click the "See All" link to view all messages, and use the icons to the right to mark messages as unread or archive them.

Archived messages can then be accessed via the "Archived" link in the top left of the "Messages" page.

If you want to remove the ability for people to message your Page, click the "Settings" tab and select "Messages." Deselect the "Messages" option and "Save Changes."
