Comment(by Takeo):

 Thanks r-a-y!

 I assumed it was not working since autocomplete didn't pop up. It only
 pops up for friends. Just tested and you're right. You can still send to
 anyone, you just don't get the autocomplete.

 I still feel the lack of feedback / help is a usability issue. Since
 you're allowed to message any user, it seems logical that autocomplete
 should work for any user. Seems unreasonable for people to have to recall
 usernames (and type them without error).

 I understand this could be an issue with a large user base. Maybe when
 "Friends" is turned off, the system should treat everyone as a "Friend"
 rather than treating everyone as a non-Friend???
