Works fast when I try to communicate with friends in Mexico, the only BIG problem I have no privacy anymore. Maybe I don't understand why our microphone or camera can be access without our permission...

I use messenger more than I use my phones text feature. Makes it easy to send pictures, take pictures, send stickers and you can tell if someone is on there phone so you aren't bugging them if they aren't

The app itself seems to work ok, the low grade is because this shouldn't be a required app to begin with! Facebook messages worked just fine inside the app. Creating an additional app only created an inconvenience.

Great to keep in contact with people that you are friends with on Facebook. Easy to send pictures and URLs. I use this to keep in contact with friends out of the states. Has some flaws but otherwise good

I enjoy being able to use the Facebook Messenger on my phone so I can quickly see when one of my Facebook friends message me! It also allows me to easily send pictures to my friends as well! Great app!

This just made Facebook messaging complicated. It was so much easier to stay on the site and send a message now you have to leave the site every time you want to check a message. I also didn't want it but it wouldn't let me send a message until I got the app. Very frustrating

This app is a great idea but could use some fine tuning it would be great if it would pop up messages for everyone that sends one not just the people on my friends list . it also freezes up on occasion

DO NOT LIKE, why in the world do I need another app to do what the previous app did without needing two things? Completely useless and not liked by me at all. Keep it in regular FB without extra steps

I don't really understand why this change was necessary. I don't like having to open a whole other app on my phone, just to talk to people. If I wanted to do that, I'd just download kik or whatsapp.

Is anyone else upset about the picture setting that automatically sends your picture without giving you a chance to review it?

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