Messenger app has ruined facebook

I'm absolutely disgusted by how glitchy and useless the messenger app is. I despised being asked to download it every time I went into my inbox and now I'm seriously considering never using Facebook again becuase you have to download it to inbox on a mobile.
Oh and the active option does not work. I looked in the FAQ and it says to switch active to off but it literally makes no difference what so ever, people still see that I'm online. This is just ridiculous.
I seriously hope whoever made all these changes gets aids and dies.

Great app

Most frequently used application on my iPhone. The design is outstanding, and Facebook is easily one of the best ways to communicate.

For those experiencing some issues i suggest updating to the latest version of iOS, and Messenger. As well as clearing your devices RAM by closing all background applications.

Please fix!

Facebook messenger has always worked quite well for me and I've hardly ever had any problems except for minor bugs causing it to suddenly close. The past 2 days have been stuffing up this app because it started to update but has stopped and is saying "waiting" blah blah blah. I can't even access Messenger anymore and I've tried deleting it and redownloading but it won't download. I'm not sure if this problem is just for IPhone 4 users but it's REALLY annoying me to extremes! Please fix soon! I miss my friends
