Hate being forced to use this app instead of being allowed to access my messages directly from Facebook so I decided to delete the Facebook app altogether and just keep messenger to contact the few family members and friends who still use Facebook.

I don't care about all the flaws or how people hate the update . The only thing that a do mind is how much space it needs , overall I love this app I can connect with my family and friends all in one space with can call each other and reconnect

Not a terrible app but it tends to be frustrating when you have two separate apps for Facebook on your device. To me it wastes space, and I don't like the pop up feature on android devices I find it gets in my way when trying to do other things.

It is easy to use. I just hate the fact i have to have a separate app to access my messages from Facebook. It just waste space on your phone. Other than that it works pretty good.

I like messenger, I didn't like it at first because I thought why make me download another app to use the same service I get on Facebook. Now its very convenient, I don't have to log into Facebook to use the app and just send messages to people

Terrible app. The old messenger that was integrated was perfect. This one is annoying, the alerts and little heads that pop up are frustrating. Even when I turn them off they tend to turn themselves back on. It also seems to eat up a lot of ram.

This app has its pros and cons. I hate having to leave the Facebook app to read messages. But I do like the ability to create group messages and add people and the stickers are fun. But I mostly just use my iPhone unless I need a huge group text.

I was so against Messenger when it first came out, but it's really grown on me. If you have long conversations via facebook it makes it a lot more like texting and therefore way easier than having to open up facebook and go through messages there.

I was upset when I had to get the Facebook, Inc. Facebook Messenger app on my phone. I don't understand why I can't just use my Facebook app to send and receive messages. Having another app for that just takes more space from my memory in my phone.

I actually like this app and have been using it since before they forced people to download it. So maybe I'm just not as bitter as everyone else. It always works for me, and it connects me with my friends who I can't text or otherwise reach.

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