I like the facebook messenger app mainly because it's a lot less laggy than the actual Facebook app. I have no trouble with the app. I'm always able to send whatever to my friends and family. No complaints here.

I don't like that this is now a desperate app- I tonight's silly and just takes up more space. However, I do like using messenger. My brother, sister and I & our significant others use this a lot to group chat.

I have not and will not download the Facebook messenger. In the terms and conditions it says that whatever I say is free and open to the cia to moniter and have full access to my account. That's not okay to me.

I really dislike the Fb Messenger App. I don't like how it's separate from Facebook. I like to stay on Facebook and message my friends than going completely off to another app. It just sucks and don't like it.

I do not that like that Facebook has a separate app for messaging. It is a nice app and easy to you, it just takes up more storage space than it needs to. Facebook needs to fix this issue.

The separation of Facebook and messenger wasn't ideal to begin with, but I have come to realize it works better this way as I can often chat with friends without having to open Facebook all the way on my phone.

This app is nice to use for messaging people via facebook. I like how there's fun stickers you can use to spice up your messages to friends. I don't always use this app but it's nice to keep on my phone in case someone tries to message me or something.

This app is ok. I just dislike the fake that i had to download a separate app to be able to msg someone on fb. Like if app fb doesn't take enough memory as it is. The only cool thing it has are the emojis.

I understand why Facebook made a separate app for messaging, but for a majority of Facebook's users it seems to be an extra burden. I don't like how I have to switch between apps to contact the same people.

I do love messenger but I wish that they would have kept it integrated into the Facebook app itself. Having another app on my phone is just one more thing to keep updated and synced with my Facebook account.

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