I like facebook messenger, I like how I could communicate in a fast way with family and friends it's very convenient! I never have had a problem with it :)
I hate this concept. Why should I have to install a separate app which is such a core part of the website? The app needs lesser intrusion on my privacy!
I love the messenger app and have not experienced any problems what so ever with it. It allows you to go right back to fb by clicking on the fb icon. :)
It's a decent app. It's improved a lot from the beginning. I don't really like switching between apps when I have a message, but I've gotten used to it.
I really don't understand the purpose of this app, why do i need something that the main Facebook app already has? too many bugs, needs to be revamped.
Okay because I have family out of state it's really hard to see them often so Facebook messenger makes it easier to FaceTime them and see them more often
I personally love this app. Makes it easier for me to just pop in, answer a message, then go about my day without having to open the actual facebook app.
I'm so annoyed that I have to change to a completely different app just to read my messages. It was way better when it was included in the Facebook app.
Its nice but I don't like that on an iPhone every time I'm going to send a message thru this new messenger app it takes me out of Facebook that annoys me
It stinks you have to have a separate app for messaging. But I like it. I love the stickers you can add or play games with the person you are talking to.
