Top definition
A message, or messages, sent while the recipient is not online.
It is usually intended for the recipient to read when they come online & not necessary or vital to send in an active conversation.
Ghost messages usually are about previously stated information or just something that you would like the recipient to read & not necessarily respond to.
(Please note the timestamps on these examples)
