Sending money from messenger is the easiest and is immediately put into their account and vise versa. I get money immediately after sent. I honestly don’t use messenger for anything else 😂 Facebook payments are the only reason I use messenger. I rarely talk to people lol

The Facebook Messenger app is the new way to carry on private conversations via Facebook. I personally just like the old way Facebook use to run things when you would just chat and send messages through Facebook. I pretty much never use this app, but I'm stuck with it in my phone because ever *once* in a blue moon someone wants send me a message, and if you don't have he app, you can read the message. The app IST much different than Facebook chat was - it's like a text message system, but when you get messages a chat bubble pops up to notify you.
Tbh, if I didn't have to have this app, I wouldn't.

Facebook Messenger is so easy and simple to use, I love it. Its easy to get in contact with people, and I like that you can see when people have received and read your messages. The photo sharing aspect is also very good, as you can take pictures right there in the chat without having to exit to the camera instead

One of my most used apps. I like it because I can talk with all my contacts of Facebook but I prefer Whatsapp. On Messenger I like that I can use stickers and GIFS, also it is really easy to use and to send pictures, videos and documents.

Not a fan of messenger, I wish I could message people directly within the app. Also the emojis are ugly, please set them to stock android /IOS depending on the user. Also make it less heavy, it needs a lot of space, that sucks.

I use this on a daily basis. While for the most part it works ok - It does glitch out or just randomly close. I think if they could keep up with the bugs, it would be a very great app! It is easy to get around and use! I would recommend to others who need to get in touch with those on Facebook quickly!

Since I came to Canada, this one is my only way to communicate with my friends. I do not need to see them, I can talk to them. On messenger, I can also see my family in Vietnam with the video call ( my homesickness will be decreased). Furthermore, I can also discuss with my friends at same time through the group chat ( it helps me a lots in my study).

La aplicación es realmente buena y útil. Puedes ver cada uno de los mensajes que recibes en facebook sin necesidad de meterte en la página o estar frente a una computadora. Muchas veces lo he utilizado para mensajes importantes. 
Además tiene todos los stikers y emojis que presenta en el facebook.l

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