It has it's pros and cons. Anything you HAVE to do without options people are naturally not going to like. I personally got rid of the app as well as Facebook and log in from safari. I have found that to be just as simple.

Such an easy way to stay up to date on Facebook messages! I love not having to check the app for them. You can either set it so that there are notifications or none. You can also silence certain conversations if you don't want notifications from certain ones. Overall it works well and loads quickly!

Ugh! Honestly the app itself isn't bad, but em what aggravates me is that you have to have the app in order to send messages via facebook now. I don't need another app wasting space on my phone for a once in a great while message I might send someday in the far future. Hate this feature of fb.

It's an okay feature of Facebook. Not my favorite. I hate how Facebook forces you to have it in order to talk to your friends. It should be an option. Mine occasionally freezes up or closes out in the middle of a conversation. But I do enjoy the calling and video chat features very much.

I use this program everyday to keep in touch with friends and family. i don't like that if you do not have this separate app you cannot read your messages on faceebook. overall it works well but wish i didn't have to download another app just for facebook to function the way its ment to

I really don't like the fact that Facebook now requires another app to use the messenger. I rarely ever check my messages because I don't feel the need to download another app. I don't like the terms and use for this app, I think a lot of the stuff it has access to is completely unnecessary.

This is probably the worst update Facebook could have possibly come up with. It is pointless because it functions as a texting app and nobody really needs that. It slows my phone down when I just want to quickly open up Facebook and read a message, but have to open up the chat app too.

Me encanta por qué no debo tener mi Facebook abierto para poder usarlos , puedo ver a mi familia por cámara cambiar el color del chat y cosas tan cool me fascinó se lo recomiendo chicos de verdad es muy bueno

I do not like the forced download to see messages. It is one more thing to look at when I have enough on my phone screen. The latest download crashes itself or my phone frequently. Being asked if I want to sync my contacts ten times and before I can see messages is extremely annoying.

I've never downloaded the app because I find it very inconvenient to have to download a separate Facebook App just to get my messages. I usually just check them from my mobile internet or from my laptop. Plus I don't trust all the negative feed back from the permissions from this app.

Do you think Facebook will go back to just chat without messenger? Or Will they change it again somehow?
