Crappie app 😫👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽
MrsCox1 on 8/20/2018
This is a crappie app, I can’t even send or receive my messages. Y’all got to do better.
Why so many ads after the new update?
Lissa802 on 8/20/2018
Never had an issue with ads while using messenger. After the new update, messenger is posting ads of my hometown, then my current location, etc. This is very annoying. If ads continue to track “my info” I’ll just delete the application permanently. Isn’t it bad enough that Facebook itself is loaded with ads, now you have to add it to messenger as well? Please fix the issue and REMOVE ads from messenger.

It’s absolutely stupid that I need to download a separate app JUST to read Facebook messages, garbage concept for a garbage company, if it weren’t for the fact that I need this app to get updates on important topics I’d never download it
i like it but....
tayyymarieeee on 8/20/2018
can you guys bring back the chat bubbles for iphone i really miss just pressing on the bubbles for fast reply , i hate going back and forth on the app when i miss the notification to reply . honestly would be perfect to go back to that , and it’ll be easier.
Facebook is the issue
mlenarto on 8/20/2018
Bad integration with Facebook marketplace.
Forced to download
Kid Tokyo Brand on 8/20/2018
I think it’s lame that you HAVE to download the app. The app uses the same amount of server space as if they hosted it on the FB website. Just another way for them to control.
I use this app for.....

Facebook messenger need to pickup the pace
DIGBYS XPAND on 8/20/2018
Facebook messenger is seriously lacking behind with simple and small functions that can make it great. Facebook has friends that we do not want to share our phone numbers with to be able to communicate on other great and easy to converse instant messaging apps. One of those function is to be able to reply directly to a particular message. So difficult to handle conversation on Facebook as it doesn’t allow for different topics to be discussed concurrently just with a reply functionality. Most times when you go back to an old discussion during a new one the whole thing becomes confusing and then takes longer to type and clarify things with who you are chatting with. I can have a discussion in 3 mins on other apps and that same conversation would take me 10 mins on Facebook messenger. This is because you talk about one topic finish it up properly and start the next one again. When you can talk about both same time just directly replying to the exact thing you getting back at. Please fix this because it’s getting boring chatting on Facebook messenger. If you can smile to a message thumb up and other things why can’t we reply? Thank you.

Vette Culture
crooked dealer on 8/20/2018
Purchased a 2001 Prowler from Gino & Eren at Vette Culture. I was told the vehicle was in perfect condition / like new. I paid by wire transfer. Once the car was shipped and delivered the problems started. Upon delivery I noticed the roof had two tears in the convertible top, the battery was flat dead (However I was told they put in a new battery prior to shipping), the passenger window doesn’t work by the drivers side control, passenger side Door Trim Panel Pocket, pull pocket was broken, the button for right mirror was missing. I called Gino numerous times but kept getting Eren who directed back me to the shipper (who they hired by the way). Now being caught in the middle of the dealer and the shipping company (Vette Culture hired to move the vehicle). Neither company would take responsibility for the torn soft top. I had to call the state police because the truck driver proceeded to take the keys and climb back in his truck “car carrier” and attempted to leave with the keys. I called Gino (got Eren again) after an inexcess of Two hrs. trying to get a resolution. I was told by Eren of Vette Culture they wouldn’t take the the vehicle back. I had to sign the delivery paper work as damaged and Vette Culture would take care of getting the damaged taken care of. After excepting the vehicle, I tried for days and weeks to speak to the seller (Vette Culture) but now they refuse to take my calls. I’ve file a complaint with the BBB, hire a lawyer and I will take this as far as I have to to get a proper resolution. I would recommend anyone to purchase s vehicle from Vette Culture they are dishonest and crooked.
Who’s your daddy?
ohiowithacooldog on 8/20/2018
It’s still the same year FB went to Washington to answer questions on privacy? People apparently want to be owned. Pretty shady install. Messenger seems demanding for an app that I was hoping to install to communicate with a couple of people. —Overwhelming to try to keep up with a million people who are “plugged in to the system”. This app is not for people still living in the real world, who have goals and physical labor to do. It’s also not for people with spotty cell connections. I was off of FB for three years and came back to this app for needy, lonely people who need Zuckerberg to guide the way.
What’s the Issue?
Shon.kb3 on 8/20/2018
Your app constantly deletes important conversations I’ve had with people over a two hour period our old messages from the other day would be there but what ever we spoke on two hours ago goes missing 😒
Davey30001 on 8/19/2018
Call always fails when lock screen and talking always crashing its annoying this app is going down hill really fast this never happens on android and im really thinking on making a move to the galaxy cuz its way more stable than on apple thats just me idk and i update this app regularly and still crashes
Turning off notifications
Scrandall on 8/19/2018
I tried everything to turn off notifications for pages I’m part of. My phone goes off all night. I had to delete the app
Forces update
miniluigi008 on 8/19/2018
Forces you to update just to read your past messages even if you aren't sending or receiving. Really annoying when you just want to take a quick look at something.
Offline button?
stuck-in-the-80s on 8/19/2018
I also like the ability to go between online and offline and that feature has seemed to stop working.
HELP !!!
fkOff808 on 8/19/2018
how can I log out of messenger? Without having to add someone else’s account.
ihradkito on 8/19/2018
it's always lagging!
Giving me problems
hgfbbvcfujm on 8/19/2018
I can’t download
Messenger deleted my texts
102.7 kiss fm!!!!!! on 8/19/2018
Its deleting texts i sent on the same day i sent them
ehogan1997 on 8/19/2018
You know what I hate? A cluttered iPhone. Why in the world do I need to download a SECOND Facebook app? Messenger should be incorporated into the normal Facebook app like EVERY OTHER social media platform. I hate being rerouted to another app. It is quite possibly one of the most obnoxious things I encounter in my daily life. If Messenger was not the way my boss communicates with me, I would've deleted Facebook altogether just because of this. Whoever came up with the idea to create a new separate app to handle direct messages should be fired.
App is crashing as 4-19
dre23akind on 8/19/2018
Today the app has been crashing every time attempting to open it I’m iPhone user deleted and reinstalled the app problem still exists. Please fix this.
Don’t like this messenger app
maryjane1234667 on 8/19/2018
I don’t like how my account is connected to someone else’s account and they can see my messages without knowing my passcode. Even when I remove the other account it pops back up.I’m uninStalling this.
Video Chatting
Scarring22 on 8/19/2018
So several times I have accidentally added someone to a chat. Ending it didn’t help and the two people were left there together... what a Disaster 🤦🏾‍♀️. There should be some “are you sure you want to add John Smith to this video chat” question before the person is added. Orbit should not be so easy to accidentally add someone.
AyeshaAF on 8/19/2018
This is a great app but it keeps telling me I have new message requests and I do not. I have checked and have hit delete all even though there was nothing there and it keeps showing up. Please fix this it’s annoying. Thank you.
unhappywife on 8/19/2018
All of a sudden it won’t stay on
Actually tell us what you’re changing in updates!
Heather&Dave on 8/19/2018
Seriously. Look at version history and you’ll see the same message for days. No matter how hard you work to improve this app, this type of accountability is nothing but laziness and is not user friendly.
suzy1976 on 8/19/2018
I wish I can have the option to be available or not. I hate the fact that I go to check a message, and I get so many wavings, calls, text. Can you fix it please!!! Is annoying that there’s no privacy 🙄🤦🏽‍♀️
What message??
Chefclean on 8/19/2018
I really hate this app. It keeps telling me I have a new message, yet either will not show me the message or is just trying to get me to friend people I have unfreinded. Facebook needs to get it together and stop trying to get users to do things that they really don’t want to do. Deleted and will not reinstall ever again.
BabyGurl-bg on 8/19/2018
Update idea. Can you give us the option of choosing who to hide our activity from along with the current hiding activity from everyone? There’s about 4 people out of the 200+ friends I have that I’d want to hide my activity from so they won’t see when I’m online or when I was recently active.
almost perfect
angelicakim on 8/19/2018
i absolutely love this app, but i recently updated it and my only complain now is that i’m unable to search my messages? i don’t know if that’s a glitch, but this is a really important and useful feature for me. so i would appreciate it if it was brought back
Links don’t open!
Turboz-11 on 8/19/2018
“Cannot connect this link does not seem to be working.
Chat bubble
Holliday 07 on 8/19/2018
Soooooo there’s no chat bubble outside the app? My galaxy did. Really useful
Mess ups
drinogcxs on 8/19/2018
I can’t open my gallery while on the phone Messages get resunt over and over My phone doesn’t ring at all when some one calls
Very good
lacander123 on 8/19/2018
Easy to use
Chat Heads
Tragicarp on 8/18/2018
I very much dislike that chat heads aren’t available. That was one of my favorite things, before I got a new phone. Very disappointing.
Video quality
malihami27 on 8/18/2018
Whenever I post videos on my story I don’t understand why it makes my video quality so blurry so does the Facebook whenever I post a video on my account it makes my video quality look so bad that you can’t even see what’s happening on the videos it’s blurry, glitching like you guys need to work on this video qualities ASAP.
TommyGottaJob on 8/18/2018
Can’t even change the name photo.
Carlotta Stephens-Atchley on 8/18/2018
Trashing of messages
bbbbdbdbdbd on 8/18/2018
Hate hate hate the fact that you can’t delete an entire conversation with a swipe like you can on regular text messages or emails. It’s ridiculous how you must push down on one message within your messages to delete and if it’s a photo, video or GIF , FORGET IT CAUSE IT CAN NEVER BE DELETED! Please fix this problem!!!
Love the app..
TayMilan on 8/18/2018
This app is perfect but I should have privacy. I would like to text people & scroll down my feed without showing that I’m active. Thanks .
Bonnie Gage on 8/18/2018
I can not get any of my messages the app is completely white on my phone
QwertyPep123S on 8/18/2018
In gujrati news you give only Gujrat ‘s news about rain. Asia t v neglects saurashtra region and news abut rain over there. Your news covers more daxin Gujrat and near by-shame. Pl. Consider suurashtra as part of Gujrat -Junagadh,Porbandar, Jamnagar,surendranagar,Bhuj, than Rajkot etc.Be balance your act.🙏🇮🇳
cisco-cisco on 8/18/2018
How can I delete contacts that I even didn’t know I had???
Contacts are always active
420bl4z31t on 8/18/2018
I love the app, but for a couple months now all of my contacts are constantly shown as “active”. It’s annoying and I wish it just showed the actual time. Is it a bug in an update?
One thing
Khalidizumi on 8/18/2018
The bubbles, the ios version lacks the bubbles and it's frustrating, please add them, please, besides that the app is great
