Why won't it install?

I had this app before and it alway said "waiting". Then it spontaneously stopped and deleted itself when I updated it. Now when I try to install it again it won't install at all. So now I cant message my friends or family unless I use my laptop or iPad. It's really frustrating that it won't install again. If there is a solution please let me know. I don't understand why we have to have 'messenger'. But because we do, I need to know how to get it to install...again. Please fix this bug or what ever it is. I like messenger but now my opinion is changing.


I don't usually write reviews, but I really do hate the fact that now if I type ":)" it corrects to "☺️". If I wanted to send an emoji, I would've. I also think you should be able to have a 'group' of people that you talk to most often, but it's not actually a messaging group, it just has your selected friends in there, would help to see if they're online or not, etc.

Please Add On

I use Facebook on a daily basis and it's how I keep up to date with my friends, family and home business. One thing that you could really do to get 5 stars out of me is make the "others" message folder accessible on the messenger app. I forget about it cause I use the app and miss out on very important messages. Thanks
