    Seen.

    If someone sent me a massage, could it be correct to write them back "seen" means that I read the message?

    'Seen' would mean nothing to me.

    Re: Seen.

    If the message came as a text/sms, I'd send back Thanks or OK.

    Re: Seen.

    Noted might serve your purpose, but it doesn't sound very friendly, more for a message that wasn't particularly welcome but has been read.

    Re: Seen.

    That reminded me of this great scene from Airplane - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2OBZf0QdKdE

    For those who haven't seen the film, the pilot's name is is Clarence Oveure, the co-pilot's Roger , and the navigator's Victor.
