Ever wish you could chat Facebook style on your phone without having to go through the rigmarole of logging into your Facebook? The good news is that there’s an app called Facebook Messenger that simplifies how you can communicate with your Facebook friends on your phone. Facebook Messenger syncs up with all of your Facebook chats and messages, so you can access them on-the-go. Facebook Messenger even allows you to chat and message groups of friends. If you want to make plans for Friday night with five of your friends, you can send a mass message to all five of those friends at once.
Setting up Facebook Messenger on your phone is simple. All you have to do is go to fb.me/msgr on your phone’s web browser. Alternatively, you can go to the Android Market or App store and find the Facebook Messenger app there.
One of the major perks of Facebook Messenger is that it uses data instead of text messages to work. So, if you only have a limited number of text messages you can send each month, the messages you send on Facebook Messenger won’t count as text messages and cause you to meet your text quota too quickly. If you don’t have unlimited data, you can always use Facebook Messenger when your phone’s connected to Wi-Fi to conserve data.
So, stop taking the time to login to Facebook on your phone every time you want to chat with your friends. Facebook Messenger makes staying connected even easier.
