    Messenger is really cool, and on top of it also a free application for your mobile that allows you to reach friends where they are now, you can text your friends for free with your existing data plan. You can also communicate with your friends on their phones and on the web, so you do not miss any of your messages. Another cool thing you can do is email a friend or initiate group a discussion, and you can choose to include their location, share photos with your friends and the friends of the friends that you are in chats with. With Facebook messenger its easy to know who has seen your message and who not. It gives you the chance to go straight to their messages and access your messages and chats as if they were conversations. When you log into Facebook you can also obtain free push notifications on your phone to view each message as soon as it arrives and switch between multiple conversations with the notifications in the application. And what’s great about this is once you know how to get the application then you can have facebook Messenger on any of your iPhone or Android devices.
