    @NewLookHelp Hi, I tried to get help on the Facebook messenger but that was completely useless so I’m hoping this is an actual person and not a bot....? I need to return something but am shielding so can’t drop at a shop. Is there a way to get a courier to pick up the item?

  • KarenzBotz Fun with Bots (@KarenzBotz) reported

    Anyone else having issues with Facebook messenger not alerting you of new messages lately or is my phone just getting old and buggy

  • MushyHen MushyHen (@MushyHen) reported

    Important, Please Read: If you have a kink Instagram account, make sure that it is not linked to the new "Account Center" that was just added by facebook messenger. It linked to my kink account by default and am not sure who noticed before I fixed the problem. GOOD LUCK! :(

  • Natanael_L Natanael, tech janitor (@Natanael_L) reported

    @AlecMuffett @alexstamos The single thing I can think of that is of relevance is the committing encryption scheme used in Facebook messenger, where the recipient can flag a message and relay the committed key, proving the ciphertext sent over the service held the reported content.

  • jebr Jeb Rach (@jebr) reported

    @sdho @mikesonn I guess I've never had an issue with not having iMessage; not sure if that's a reflection of people communicating me through other apps (Signal, Slack, FB Messenger) or that I don't really communicate to people with iDevices much.

  • farktal Aaron Knight (@farktal) reported

    Hey FB Messenger app: please fix your iOS notifications background checking. I shouldn’t have an unread indicator on a message *I SENT* from another device. Ever.

  • chrisWhite Christin White (@chrisWhite) reported

    @myapfelworld I've been trying to get it to work for months now. Doesn't Beepify do Telegram and FB Messenger as the two chat services it will connect to? I'd double check but I can't launch it now and I don't see it on their site, "Help Center" isn't actually a link either.

  • OisinFahy1 Oisin Fahy (@OisinFahy1) reported

    @KevBeirne @EmerSugrue I just tried, you can mute a chat in FB messenger from the main menu by holding down on the chat you want to mute.

    @ASOS @ASOS_HeretoHelp @asos "Asos customer service is a joke at the moment. Tried to contact through Facebook messenger and email, still no response! My refund is £65 short!"

  • ShanODonoghuexo 💚Shannon'TheScript'Bake💚 (@ShanODonoghuexo) reported

    2) as I'm deaf my only option to contact them is online chat/email or Facebook messenger, each one I'm being ignored! Whenever I eventually get to speak to someone they say they can't help and I need to ring this person then that person..

    @AtlanticBBInc Well, we had this same conversation a week ago when I needed a transfer of service so I message thru fb messenger like you advised me to, set everything up for today to get transferred only to find out that it was only scheduled to be a service call for tech.

  • OtanoMarfa M (@OtanoMarfa) reported

    @DuckDuckGo @mshelton I love Signal. I dropped Facebook Messenger and I'm not going back. My one issue with Signal is that I can't send photos in batches, only one by one. I wish they'd update that issue.

  • journeymanped Journeyman Pedant (@journeymanped) reported

    @whitequark there was that kind of brief period in the late 2000's where you could login to facebook messenger, google chat etc via XMPP. Even up to 2015 I was logging in to Lync/Skype for Business with pidgin which worked well for chat

  • danniellebardo1 Dannielle Bardowell (@danniellebardo1) reported

    @Payoneer Please respond to my dm regarding my declined payment. I’ve been blocked from your Facebook messenger, your phone representatives have given me inconsistent information, one just hung up on me, and the other has had me on hold for over 20 minutes. Your service is unsatisfactory.

  • MarieIW Marie Williams (@MarieIW) reported

    @Matalan Can you respond to my email and Facebook messenger posts about my lost order? You can take orders but clearly don’t have an effective customer service system up and running

  • JCWHMU James (@JCWHMU) reported

    @MitchellTarbit is your Facebook messenger not working?

  • Lucilalovelight Lucy Maldonado (@Lucilalovelight) reported from Rancho Cucamonga, California

  • ShireBat 🦇 Batty for Orange Team🧡Ⓥ🦇 (@ShireBat) reported

    @GayofReckoning7 It is 100% okay (and completely valid!) to remove these ***** from your life and anywhere from your sight. Do they have Twitter handles? FB messenger? Can I be of service? More than willing to send some thoughts.

  • romeshsharma007 Romy Finance (@romeshsharma007) reported

    @Uber_Support I created the case through Facebook messenger on Jan 5th and have followed up 10 times without any response from Uber customer service.

  • pwndNinjaQuick NinjaQuick (@pwndNinjaQuick) reported

    @KatieDaviscourt Do not use FB Messenger. Facebook has access to messages you send there. Use a E2E encrypted service like Signal, Whatsapp, Telegram (with encryption enabled), etc.

  • _KayleighHardy Kaylssss (@_KayleighHardy) reported

    If I wasn’t a bad enough friend for forgetting to reply before COVID I’ve just looked in my Facebook messenger and saw a message unopened from 4 days ago and now I feel like it’s rude to reply but message notifications just overwhelm me and I just put my phone down instead 🙃

  • McMudder71 McMudder (@McMudder71) reported

    @justjason709 I’m not down there, just going through fb messenger. Nerves b’y! Lol
