    @noneuclideangrl At least in iMessage they don't need to share the message or share an encryption key. I imagine Messenger is coded to allow those APIs to return back to the Facebook servers instead directly on the phone. So that might cause issues

    @MichaelaMaciw honestly just delete the facebook app and keep messenger😪 every time i would scroll down my feed id just end up so pissed off at people

    @raylenemcvicar8 @ttylij iMessage is among the forms of messaging like WhatsApp, FB Messenger, Snapchat, etc. that wouldn’t be impacted. People texting through their service provider would be subject to the tax though, if you don’t have an iPhone or use iMessage or similar then you’re paying a surcharge

    @scottbudman No. I'll just ask to shut down that service on my account. I'll switch entirely to other means. Like hangout, fb messenger, WhatsApp etc

    @Aliciastarr001 If they pass it they as well as service providers will lose and Apple & FB would win. Everyone will switch to imessage or FB messenger. I suggest the CPUC figure out where the already allocated money is or has gone.

    My order was broken into 3 shipments and the 3rd one never arrived, contrary to tracking info. No one answers the phone, no responses to my FB messenger queries, or my Tweet, or my email. I am at my wit's end. I just want this hat before Christmas - help me @madewell

    I can’t decide what annoys me more. #facebook with its stupid new notification system and issues with messenger or the self service tils in supermarkets that refuse to accept my shopping bags when I weigh them! #thingsthatareannoyingmetoday

  • BuzSalloum
    buz salloum (@BuzSalloum) reported

    I temporarily deactivated my fb account to avoid so many dramas that I’ve been seeing recently. I removed my messenger as well. It’s really hurtful to open messenger and just see messages that are always negative and full of problems.

    @jerrycelticfue1 You would need to top-up the account to send the picture messages. If you can send them via a 3rd party messaging service, WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Twitter DM, that wouldn't be chargeable. Any usage would be taken from your data allowance. - Jenny

    @barkivist The best thing to do is to try the Facebook messenger then, the customer service monkey emails are incredibly backlogged, they are reading them as fast as they can.

    @veetomo Oh here’s the kicker She didn’t even call the store like she’s supposed to. She hunted me down on Facebook to tell me about this. And because of how those message requests work on Messenger, I didn’t see it until about 5 minutes before she was supposed to be in.

    Wow, I’ve got a lot of terrible bullshit back in my conversation-history archives on Facebook Messenger... There’s probably no way to really, truly, once-and-for-all delete that from all the double-secret backups, huh. 😰

    @virginmobileusa your online service, your community board, tweet and Facebook messenger do not add up to customer service, you don't even answer your website's return form requests. I have tried for 3 days to get a return form no help, at all.

    Snapchat is the new Facebook . I found 19 out of every 20 use it more. Used more for texting calling pictures then regular text messenger. Makes absolutely no sense why the stock price is going down for how popular it is #snapchat #stocks only competition #instagram is terrible

    @lexie_swanson In America you need to have service on a phone in order to access mobile data. Here I can pick up a phone which has no service on it at all and still be able to chat with my friends on Facebook Messenger and post status updates.
