By default, people you do not know can send you messages on Facebook. But you can adjust your privacy settings to stop people who are not your Facebook friends from sending you a message. When a person who is not your friend accesses your profile, the option for sending a message is not presented. Edit the privacy settings for your Facebook account to suit your needs.
