Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Instantly reach the people in your life—for free. Messenger is just like texting, but you don't have to pay for every message (it works with your data plan).

Not just for Facebook friends: Message people in your phone book and just enter a phone number to add a new contact.

Group chats: Create groups for the people you message most. Name them, set group photos and keep them all in one place.

Photos and videos: Shoot videos and snap selfies or other photos right from the app and send them with one tap.

Free calls: Talk as long as you want, even with people in other countries. (Calls are free over Wi-Fi. Otherwise, standard data charges apply.)

Even more ways to message:
Bring your conversations to life with stickers.
Preview your camera roll photos and videos without leaving the conversation--then choose the perfect ones to send.
Record voice messages when you have more to say.

Extra features:
Know when people have seen your messages.
Forward messages or photos to people who weren't in the conversation.
Search for people and groups to quickly get back to them.
Turn on location to let people know when you're nearby.
See who's available on Messenger and who's active on Facebook.
Turn off notifications when you're working, sleeping or just need a break.
Stay logged in so you never miss a message.

If u dont want it dont have it

Lots of reviews here are saying facebook forces then to use it as it is the only way to read your messages on mobiles you have to download the app.
However, if you really don't want the app then just open up the internet (safari) and type in FACEBOOK it doesnt take you straight to the app and you can save storage by using it on safari although you won't receive notifications unless you change the settings xx

Big Brother

I had this app installed but after watching the news I have now removed it. Like most of us we just click install without reading what they can do and this is where the issues lies. They can access the front & back camera at anytime (think of any scenario), they can read your text messages, they can listen in on your calls, they can listen in on private conversations when your phone is in your pocket or on a table in front of you because they can activate your microphone, is this what you want Facebook to act like Big Brother, hell no...until they sort it I will not download it. I suggest other user think carefully before installing.

Groups needs fixed :/

Really good app, although there's a problem. When i create a group i find that basically anyone can do anything like change the group name, picture and kick. This should be fixed so there is 3 ranks (idk what else to call it) where there is member: can only chat
Moderator:can add kick (but not other moderators) change photo and name.
Finally Leader: can do same as moderator but kick modserators and promote members to moderators. Otherwise really good app. Thanks ;)
