Hate being forced to download. Takes up way too much space on my phone. And it seemed ever since I did my phone was never the same.

I liked facebook better when the messaging was in it. The second app is annoying, but I will say it does work well for group messaging

This app is terrible. It's basically Facebook's backdoor way of getting all of your information and selling it to 3rd party companies.

Easy way to speak to friends and family, only bad part is people contact you from weird countries in the worlds trying to make friends!

I don't know why the need to have the messenger separate for the Facebook app came about, it's functional but is harder to ignore.

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