READ! ! ! ! ! ! !

Very great app to communicate with family and friends but lately there’s been so many stupid updates to the app like this recent one that I just did not mentioning the first one that was the exact same version which was a new version where you could delete the message on people’s chat to where no one can see it but then the last update before this new one they had removed that choice which is stupid because it’s a very good thing to be able to delete a chat if you sent soemthing you weren’t trying to but this new update they didn’t just re add the remove from all chat but it’s now getting stuck every time I slide to reply to someone it’s becoming an a lot of time closing the app and re opening to try and reply but still same problem please I ask the makers to fix this and to not keep sending out updates if they’re really isn’t any bug on the app other wise it’s a really good app no other words to describe it tbh but I love it.

This App is horrible.

As in the title, this app has a lot of bugs and it lacks many necessary features. I am only using it because it’s it connects me to my Facebook contacts, if it was an independent texting application, i would have never used it. Why when you add someone to a group, they can read every previous message? Why you can’t delete a message that you have sent (deleting it for the other person)? Why going offline (aka turning off chat) still shows you as “active now” but only with the green dot disappearing, so you are basically telling people “Hey, this person doesn’t want to chat with you”? Why does the video call button starts glowing when both you and the other person are opening the chat tab (so i might be reading an old message and the other person would think that i am stalking)? What about the profile picture bug? If someone (me or my friends) changes their Facebook profile picture, it won’t changes in messenger 99% of the times. Also when going to check pictures in an conversation, they might not load or load slowly. What about the “active 1 minute ago”? It appears always except if i turn the internet off in my device.
All those previous bugs, “features” and other lack of features make the app just horrible. Hope that you fix those bugs and remove those “features” and add other necessary ones.

I dont like the stories!

How do i turn off this dumb stories setting! I hate it. I open my messenger and its there no way out im clicking and dragging to get to the place and reason i opened the app. But i cant. Im close to giving up on messenger and Facebook all together what a monster beast this social media thing has become. . But Id rather not become a www. technological/socialmedia missing person.
I dont want to see anyones “story”. I dont want you to produce a story for me and especially do not want to force anyone in my contacts to see every thing im doing. If they want to know they can ask and i will tell them or not! And i truly DO NOT CARE to look at what anyone is doing not weekly not DAILY AND ESPECIALLY NOT HOURLY!
Im not so full of myself that i need to boast or brag about my life nor do i need constant validation or reassurance from my peers friends or family.
So quit tracking us all in the guise of social *necessitories to turn us into algorithms for your gain. Its so obvious. Let me out give me the truth pill with oatmeal or a steak and cheap women i just dont want a story conceived by god forsaken Facebook Messenger! Thanks
