Please get rid of My Story...

Really tired of trying to swipe or click and having the My Story camera in the way... this is a messaging app, not Snapchat. Not a single one of my contacts uses the My Story feature.

STILL FINDING problems wrt badges if there was an unread message I used to be able to open the app and see that there was a message, but if I didn't want to read it yet this would still make the badge go away... now I have to mute the conversation just to make the badge go away until I want to read it. Another negative is the "invite to messenger" that comes up on all conversations with people who don't/can't have the app even after I have invited them I can't control whether they accept it not so after inviting them to get it once it shouldn't appear again as it makes the chat window smaller and is very annoying. Disappointing that I gave this feedback a year ago and it apparently has not been looked into.

There is also no option to delete/quit/cancel the new "games" that have been started... I started one that was really boring and it came up as a bar on top of the chat conversation for weeks before finally going away. There needs to be a way to leave or quit a game.

Likewise should be able to edit polls once they've become active, but as it is you have to make an entirely new poll just to add an option.

Could be a great app..... but

Lots of good things but some MAJOR and short sighted failings :(

Not in any particular order.... go back and make the emojis look like they do on the keyboard. The weird straight eyes version looks terrible and cheap. Sorry but the animated ones have such a better effect :)

The send and gif keys are way too close together. There is nothing more frustrating that hitting send when you have not proof read or completed the message.

Why can't photos be sent at the same time as the text??

What's with disclosing when the person was last on Facebook? Fine to show if your message has been read but not cool disclosing if that person is online or when they last used the Facebook app. iPhones open where you last last left and can show you online when you were not.

It needs to be more difficult to send spam or lots of messages all at the same time and the messenger icon needs to be in the lower part of the screen.

The sale site icons should not occupy such a prominent position, if I wanted to buy something I would go look!!!! I would like friend requests, messages then notifications :)

The above all makes the app sound bad, it's not, it's a nice app, just a bit clumsy for those who use it a lot :)

Messenger latest version update not working

Latest version of messenger is not working properly. The messenger is not updating my friends the time that they were active. Gets stuck with the active time still staying the same and the time is the old time my friends logged in messenger inbox and facebook . Cannot see when my friends have logged in again on messenger or facebook anymore
