Finally FB Messenger is now available on iPad mini took u long enough

Wow I am so amazed that you guys finally made and optimized Facebook messenger on the iPad I was always using the iPhone version on my iPad mini because at that time they didn't make Facebook Messenger for iPad yet it was only for iPhone and iPod touch but not for the iPad so I am really glad that they finally made Facebook Messenger for iPad while in the past I was just sending them feedback to optimize it for iPad so once again I am really glad that you guys made it for iPad but I do have 2 small problems that you guys need to address and fix it ASAP 1: fix the Facebook messenger call feature cause I have a feeling that the calling feature is somewhat hacked. 2: please allow us to change the notification sound for Messenger because I find it unfair that the iPhone has that feature but not the iPod touch or the iPad that is so unfair please add that feature that is all.

Couples beware

App is very destructive and can cause a lot of damage between mates. Time log is not always completely accurate and I really don't understand the reasoning for it to be up. All it does is open the door for stalking, constantly checking up on an individual. All I am saying to Facebook is change that quick, just make it like regular Facebook. Show and icon that says active and if they are not show it that the person being offline. No one needs to be in someone's business that much. Weather it be 1min ago or 1 hour ago why does it matter. I conducted an experiment of my own where a friend of mine logged onto his Facebook as soon as he logged out, waited about 5 min,I checked my app to see what it would say and it showed him as active still. Although clearly his phone was sitting right in front of the both of us. This app is nothing but trouble and another way for people to get into others business. Basically sticking there nose where it doesn't belong!

Hacker Tap Phone Calls BEWARE

This app opens you up to hackers by the buttload! They can somehow use this app to tap your calls and use your microphone, and then write messages to you and taunt you on it, and even send messages or make calls you didnt. This is probably because the app was designed to accept and make phone calls, and its even written in the service agreement FB has the right to read and listen to your calls on it. Now I am not saying the hacker that got me and my family through this app is FB, but I AM saying that the vulnerability this app causes you isnt worth it!!! Dont let someone mirror your calls and get into your system. I am really NOT joking around. It has happened to me and 2 other family members, and the problem went away when we deleted the app. I highly suggest everyone else do the same!
