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.

I am not very fond of the Facebook messenger app. It irritates me that I'm required to use this to message someone on Facebook unless I'm at my computer. If you're going to use messenger, why not just text the person. It's just as easy.

Facebook messenger is absolutely the worst thing that has ever been made. Facebook now requires users to download Facebook messenger in order to talk to your Facebook friends. Wake up Facebook this is why you are loosing so many users!!!

This app helps tremendously to message my Facebook friends. Also with the newer update you can call and face time off the messenger app which makes it even more influential to my life. This app is definitely a must have for Facebook users.

I downloaded it and i like how it opens a new screen. However, not everyone will download it so i have to wait until some people are in front of a computer to get a response. It isn't as convenience as it was before this app was created.

I do not like and indeed do not usually use a lot, I do not understand why taking up space on my cell with another app if I have the original version , Facebook should consolidate their real applications because it deducts points ...

I love this app! It works just like texting and is a great way to communicate with friends and family. I use it daily. I do not understand why people are complaining about the terms of service - they're the same for most apps out there!

I used it for a few days but deleted it because it slowed my phone down way too much. I also hate how I cant message people in the facebook app. Why not? Why do I have to download 2 apps for what I can do on one page on the computer??

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