Facebook Messenger: Yet Another Messenger?

Yan Matusevich

Starting today users will be able to get their hands on Facebook's latest newborn: Facebook Messenger. It's a universal messaging system that combines all of your texts, messages, chats and emails into one single scrollable conversation. As everyone's noticed lately, Facebook is taking serious steps to unify all of its different methods of communication into one. We all hate the new Facebook chat set-up where your chats show as personal messages and the other way around. So can we trust the new Facebook Messenger to deliver the goods?

Assuming that you've completely synched your Android with your Facebook account, Facebook Messenger will just melt all your interactions into one – whether they're texts, emails, messages or chats. So basically your phone contacts and your Facebook friends become one and the same.

The most innovative and at the same time troubling feature is automatic notification via text message of all messages, chats and emails. As cool as that may sound, that also has the potential of being extremely annoying. In other things, the Messenger allows group texting which isn't anything revolutionary for the Android phone.

Personally, I think the messenger is rather superfluous and potentially extremely frustrating.

Have you given Facebook Messenger a try? What do you think?
