    @Hertz It must be nice to be a satisfied Hertz customer. I can only imagine. 47 days have elapsed since I first wrote to Hertz S.A. about being overcharged. Many emails, FB and Twitter posts and Messenger messages later, my problem is still unresolved. Hertz, your service SUCKS.

  • johnloeber John Loeber 🎢 (@johnloeber) reported

    This is infuriating and intolerable because FB Messenger is otherwise a pretty good product -- it's my preferred messenger service that I have open all day! On my phone and my laptop! I don't need email notifications! I am already maximally engaged!

  • mamawarrior918 Mamawarrior918 (@mamawarrior918) reported

    Look this up. Then try to share the link. Lmk what you get. Fb is blocking it through original posts and in messenger. Wonder why. Error messages show up. Still shareable through comments though.

  • DrRichardAllen Dr Richard Allen (@DrRichardAllen) reported

    @brydgetech having some difficulty with getting my Stone Pro up and running. Still no reply to my email to support from 3 days ago. Trying FB Messenger too. Can I get some help please.

  • QueenKatalina_ kitty.clause 🎁 (@QueenKatalina_) reported

    Someone on fb: “I’m selling my tickets, just send me a message” Also that person: *does not have ANY way for people to send them money to buy their ticket - no Apple Pay, Venmo/cashapp, won’t use fb messenger, has issues w PayPal* Yikes. Ffs.

  • MissMRCourtney Melissa Courtney (@MissMRCourtney) reported

    I have a long conversation in FB messenger with your company since November 6th in addition to phone calls to your customer service lines. This is getting me nowhere. So I’m trying here even if it reaches the same place.

  • TrueSargent Sargent¥ (@TrueSargent) reported

    **** reacting to messages on Facebook messenger. I got a DM around 8 PM yesterday for a meeting. I went to double check the meeting time but I held down the msg for too long and accidentally gave it a thumbs up, AT 4 AM. Facebook notifies you for that. Hope I didn't wake anyone.

  • keesaroo Sara Bryce (@keesaroo) reported

    @mobayqueen712 @wobbly_tiger @largeyellowduck @kashhill @lopp And lets not forget Facebook transcribing all those conversations on messenger where ppl left voice messages for one another instead of writing them down.

  • Slomororo Rory Roketto (@Slomororo) reported

    Seems they must be closed but haven't shut their website down or updated the page. 5 days no confirmation, phone is disconnected and no answer on FB messenger. go elsewhere.

  • NoShyira Peter Tingle (@NoShyira) reported

    Re. Facebook messenger emojis: hold them down to make them big (only works with the chat emoji, not random ones on the keyboard sorry) and for the biggest emoji without it disappearing, hold it down and count to four. That'll be about the biggest it'll let you get.

  • blue_cabins Blue Mountain Cabins - Gatlinburg / Pigeon Forge (@blue_cabins) reported

    @SK_Stephens @Facebook Nope! They took down MY pers profile Nov 28 & no amount of appeals work. #scammers (using messenger without Facebook) operate using MY STOLEN NAME & PHOTO. When reported, FB says that it "does not violate community standards". #nigerianscammers #facebookscams #facebooklockout

  • nerd__1996 Nerd (@nerd__1996) reported

    Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp and other communication apps use an implementation of public key cryptography called end-to-end encryption. Only the end users have access to the decrypted data; the service provider, like Facebook, doesn’t.

  • BenDiPiero Nighthawk (@BenDiPiero) reported

  • kevinsky ⚛Kevin NomDePlume 🇨🇦 (@kevinsky) reported

    My grandma has started sending me share-prayer spam in FB messenger. You know, the ones with a 12-yr old pic of a baby that needs surgery and prayers. I can't think of a nice way to ask her to stop so I'm just putting a thumbs down on the message and reporting the original post.

  • DeveloperOfHope Chihiro Fujisaki (@DeveloperOfHope) reported

    Only tweet of the weekend before I go to sleep and it's not really a shitpost. I don't want to read certain messages but I also hate seeing *any* unread notifications on anything (especially on Facebook messenger with the chat heads) Help

  • anneocraig AllOverCreative (@anneocraig) reported

    @MeanLin1 @Apple @Google I used to have this problem with FB until I turned off messenger mic (and now mostly turned off FB). I don’t have Google mic on or Siri or Alexa or Echo. It’s too invasive.

  • Mizz_CourtxO 𝓒𝓸𝓾𝓻𝓽𝓷𝓮𝔂 (@Mizz_CourtxO) reported from Lake Ridge, Virginia

    @petevoss .....I have cycling groups I need to keep in touch with both on FB group pages, and on FB Messenger, as well as answer queries from potential buyers of cycling parts I am selling on various pages including Marketplace. So losing my access is causing me severe problems.

  • IcyApril Junade Ali (@IcyApril) reported

    @AlecMuffett @thorsheim @EFF @OpenRightsGroup @Facebook @messenger @WhatsApp @signalapp @matthew_d_green @runasand I mean, Facebook Messenger wouldn’t be considered E2E if an FB server was considered the end for decrypting the message. Agree the context is different for web apps to personal messages. I think that comes back to the problem of terminology the E2E term causes an absolutist view

  • VisitELLESMERE Visit Ellesmere (@VisitELLESMERE) reported

    @JaneBea5 They opened in their new location (opposite the carpark, to the right of Co-op) just before Christmas but were having problems with BT & advised calling/texting 0797 1986 226 (or FB Messenger). Any problems Jane & I can nip down & ask Deborah @MezeEllesmere to call you 👍

  • Afobaje__ Segun M. Hassan (@Afobaje__) reported

    When I unfriend folks on Facebook there should never be no reason for me to still be having them appear online on my messenger. Facebook needs to fix that.

  • Stace_Cakes STACIE MAi (@Stace_Cakes) reported

    @alessa_savage Haha, we have mutual friends and I’ve just done a FB stalk 👀 scroll about 10 posts down her feed and she’s called someone out on FB, EXACTLY like this AND by posting screenshots of their messenger conversation. 💅🏻 #PotKettleBlack

  • najmi Najmi 🎮 (@najmi) reported

    Technically you just go their facebook page, go to messenger and key in the data there based on command given. Which is super convenient. Later if I post anything in bulk, I’ll use their service again. Also now plan to bring back merchandise from TKN 🤔

  • PainterRandy Randy Dueck (@PainterRandy) reported

    PayPal deducts a fee when you use them to donate. When using Facebook Messenger it has no fee so 100% of what you donate goes to help me share God'Love & HisWord with the least of these here in RedBluff!

    Asked me why I don’t own a car, in one of the most expensive cities in North America, wanting to offer me pennies above minimum wage for a job that would have been $18+ in any other city/town. Treated me very rudely via Facebook messenger when I politely turned down the job offer
