This app is completely not necessary. I hate having it take up space on my phone and the fact that you need it to read your messages. The fb app was much better when you could still read your messages. Stupid app. Stupid that you need it.
I enjoy Facebook but it's got a little boring over the years but it a great way to stay in touch with family so I give it a 5. But I highly recommend it I've had to make so many people in my family and Facebook account it's not .
I dispise the Facebook messenger app. I found it way to inconvenient to have not one, but two Facebook apps! I always hate the stickers that they have I always accidentally send them or they get saved into my camera roll somehow. I wish Facebook would recombine messenger and the regular app and I might consider using my Facebook to connect with friends again
I really love the messenger app for Facebook it is so useful it's so easy to call on FaceTime your friends and you can now play games I don't particularly like the newest update because it's harder to delete messages but it's still a great app
I don't really like that you have to download the app just to talk to people privately or that the bubble pops up when you get a new message. However I do like that you can add the gifs and you can call people from it. It's an ok App.
It's a little annoying to open a separate app each time I need to send someone on Facebook a message. It was much easier when the app was in refracted into the normal Facebook app. I do like the new phone feature but still annoying.
This app is pretty good. I do not like how you have to put in your phone number and give it access to your contacts though. you never used to have to do that before and it should be like that again. sometimes it doesn't give me or my friends notifications for messages, so it is a little bit buggy. Not too bad though.
I used to love messaging with my friend on facebook because it was so easy and convenient. I hate how they made a separate app for this. It takes up space on my phone and the no privacy rumor is enough for me to go back to texting.
I really don't care for this app. You need internet to be able to run it. If you have internet, why don't you just use the internet? There's really no need for an app to take up space instead of just going online. This app is annoying. Even when you're not online, it says you are 24/7! It's just an all around unnecessary app.
It's handy to get your facebook messages in 1 app. It actually works better than looking at messages from the facebook app. It can be glitchy sometimes. Like crashes, showing old messages that were once deleted, showing empty messages from people. It's easy to use but the glitches are so annoying that I have to rate it a C.
