Facebook Messenger App in ios App Store

I’m not sure if Facebook is requiring everyone in the USA to switch to using this app for messaging within Facebook yet. But I understand that this will be implemented very soon.

So I went to the iPad’s App store and read some of the most recent reviews. The app, in it’s present form, at best, doesn’t sound promising…and at worst may actually be harmful.

Here’s a link to the most critical reviews, which also happen to be some of the most recent reviews.

The image below is a screenshot I took of one of the most negative and worrisome reviews.

In reading through some of them, some of the reviewers mention that they were required by Facebook to download and use this app for messaging in Facebook. But I have not yet been required to do so. Which is one reason I’m publishing this on my blog.

I’m hoping that some of my friends and family will read this, and comment upon whether or not they have been required to use this. And I’m hoping that if they have, that they will share their experience here for us all.

So please comment here if you’ve had experience with this app.

About vsajewel

Hi...I'm the author of 2 main blogs on WordPress...vsatips...where I write tech tips for mobile devices...primarily ios...2nd is vsatrends...where I write less about tech things and more about everything else. I also host a YouTube channel which I use to better illustrate some of the 'how to's' in my posts. I love everything about technology. Currently, my main interests/platforms are ios, Windows and Amazon Echo. Recently I decided we were spending way too much money with our local cable provider. So I decided to cut the cord. There is a definite learning curve, especially the antennae part, but we successfully did that and are now saving a boatload of money, so I write some about that. I also am extremely conscientious about security because of an event my family endured , so I write a lot about that too. Two sub-categories of security I tend to focus on are the password manager Dashlane and Hardware Firewalls. Last, I take a lot of notes and have been a beta tester for Evernote for many years. I love Evernote! In recent years Apple has beefed up Apple Notes a lot...so it’s become a fairly serious note contender...as long as its OK if you lose or mess up all your Apple note data. I write about those 2 note platforms primarily.
