Bring your conversations to life with stickers. Send photos privately. Have group conversations and make plans on the go. Text your phone contacts, even if you're not Facebook friends. Share your location so people know when you're nearby. Record voice messages. Make free calls, even to friends in other countries. Know when people have seen your messages. See who's available on Messenger and who's active on Facebook. Stay logged in so you never miss a message. Turn off notifications when you're working, sleeping or just need a break. see more...

I honestly don't like it because if you read on the terms. I mostly invades your privacy and I really don't understand why this app does this for.

It's so annoying that Facebook makes you download it to send messages. I hate that it switches between apps. Seems pointless and a waste of space.

I honestly don't like the fact that Facebook has forced us to download yet a second app. Not to mention the privacy you're not given. Not for me.

Easy way to talk to your Facebook friends. Video chat and send messages for free! It does occasionally freeze up that’s why I’m leaving 4 stars.

I don't mind the app at all. If you actually take the time to read or get the app info. it's not as bad as it seems. I also find it very useful.

I dislike the fact you have to add this app separately in order to message anyone on Facebook. Plus this app always tends to crash on my iphone.

The fact that this app even exists is so unnecessary! Just something else to take up space and battery life on your phone. I REFUSE to use it....

I don't like this app but sometimes I hate messaging on my mobile web. I use it after I check my messages through the web to reply back to people

I hate how they make people download a separate app just to talk with someone within the Facebook app. That's just ridiculous and unnecessary.

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