In the Annual Survey for 2013, one question is about the preferred way to be contacted by a recruiter. One of the options is "Stack Overflow Message".

What does that mean? As far as I know there is no messaging mechanism for contacting other users.

    This most likely referring to StackOverflow Careers. I believe you can message users that are signed up about job openings.
