I like this app! I live 7 hours away from my best friends and this is how we communicate. We have a group chat where we can talk about whatever and it's as if I am there with them:) I can also send cute stickers and communicate with my family in Mexico:)

I hate that I have to download the Messenger app just to access my messages. Another issue I have with the Facebook app is that, the images either load slowly or do not load at all. Facebook although has its down sides, is an easy communication device.

So much handier than having to open up the full Facebook app just to get to your messages - Just open up the messenger app and they're there! Also I love that when you get a new message it pops up as a little bubble on your screen which is even handier!

It's an okay app. It does make it quicker to view your Facebook messages which is cool. Sometimes the circle with the persons face who you have most recently been talking to can be a bit annoying however I still love this app.

Sorry but I do NOT like this App its not User Friendly.....I have no choice but to use it on my Smart Phone but I think the interface could be much better than it is and too it takes up so much Memory and freezing way too much

I was reluctant to use this because everyone is complaining lately about Facebook privacy and the messenger apop, but once I did use it I like it. I can keep a chat bubble open on top of my other apps and I find that handy.

Hated it from the first day I got the notification that I've to download this app to get my messages. The fact that all my messages will be in a different app and my notifications and feed will be in other is what angers me.

Free, easy to use, not really necessary but still, it pops up when you get a message. This way, you know immediately. Sometimes it does not pop up though ... I still don't get why sometimes it works, sometimes not

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