    @SkyHelpTeam No thanks, I’ll keep it public. Your colleague on Facebook messenger has told me there aren’t any engineers that can be sent out to fix WiFi issues and I can’t be sent another hub. So I’ve got to sort it myself 👍🏼👍🏼 Quality company and service

  • RonD1981 Ronald Davis (@RonD1981) reported

    @Iveth_mahomie Well said and very true. A year ago I was this guy. I was scouring fb and on messenger. I was looking for the next sort of fix. At the time, it was hard for Me to refuse ppl or say no. So you can imagine. People would call me (on messenger) many times of the day, I was always....

    The internet network is down in our area and we are currently waiting for a technician to come out to fix it. At the moment we cannot send or receive any emails however we can still recieve phone calls. Any issues we can be contacted on Facebook messenger also. Thanks.

  • psibreaker 👁‍🗨 Simon Brake (@psibreaker) reported

    @bbcthree Text message: "Oh, sorry, meant to get back to you today. Yes, we can come over in the afternoon." More recent FB Messenger message (my usual method of 'texting'): "Actually five. All forwarded. XXXXXX" Edited down to "Oh, Sorry" and "Actually Five", they don't sound so bad.

  • kuinwl Kuin Weo-Leyden (@kuinwl) reported

    Need to double down on the "Facebook Messenger isn't texting, so I'm always gonna forget to respond" hypersitition before it's too late.

  • kuinwl Kuin Weo-Leyden (@kuinwl) reported

    Need to double down on the "Facebook Messenger isn't texting, so I won't respond" meme.

  • xhckr Rashid Khan (@xhckr) reported

    @dkhare Just have call & email notification on the phone. Removed all social media (IG, FB, Messenger etc.) since the start of Feb. Anxiety reduced drastically, any notification on phone used to make me anxious. Increased productivity and screen time went down 70%.

  • MatthewParrott Matt 🐶 Parrott (@MatthewParrott) reported

    @Thamster2 The appropriate security level of a communication is always inversely correlated with the security level of the messaging service. Fedposts come at me on facebook messenger, teacup pomeranians with funny captions come at me on Signal on a disposable burner phone.

  • stephaniemrohr Stephanie (@stephaniemrohr) reported

    Huh. Apparently if you send 10 people similar emails on FB you get your messenger suspended. Thankfully it was only down for an hour.

  • astralpatrick אהיה (@astralpatrick) reported

    @t4nay So does the Facebook Messenger app on mobile devices. It’s clearly stated in the Terms of Service.

    @StLouisBlues @Wendys Got it right last game, only problem was I missed that I had to submit my vote via Facebook messenger.

  • PeninaJoy PeninaJoy (@PeninaJoy) reported

    Having a broken Samoan conversation over FB messenger with my cousin in Samoa and he's replying hahaha but I'm not sure if he thinks I'm actually being funny or if my Samoans really bad lol!!!

  • jamey_lo Jamey Lo (@jamey_lo) reported

    I’ve gone back and forth with @pc_optimum on both Facebook Messenger and through email after the customer service rep completely stopped replying to my emails altogether. It should not be this difficult to determine if I’m owed more points than I’ve earned to date.

  • inengsol1500 Sol Andrea Cabangal (@inengsol1500) reported

    I would like to thank FB Messenger because now I can raise my concerns to service providers without actually talking to anyone.

    Facebook messenger is so broken. Facebook is also broken.

    Fast forward to the time that house help left us for no particular reason. She sent a picture on my sister’s FB messenger happily eating that said Lays and blocking her immediately after sending it.

    So was talking to my gf while in the bath (fb messenger on iPad). And realized even though I’m a #wiccan and #witch I legit. Couldn’t remember the order of the Sabbats 😅 she said it’s ok. But still I feel like a terrible Wiccan and don’t celebrate them like I should.

    Arrangements are being made for some kind of service for my brother for mid-March. I am going to take a social media break at least until then, but you can find me on FB messenger, Discord, phone/TEXT!!!, email, snail mail, or in person.

    Hey guys, since Sean never gets on facebook I'm going to request on his behalf. He is in the process of moving, and needs extra hands doing so. I'm stuck at work, but if you're in or near Conroe and willing to help out message him on messenger.

    Technology is not my friend today. My laptop is a goner. My PC backup needed a backup plan. I've had an email account shut down for no reason. I've got a flash drive that won't work. FB is glitching. And FB messenger is doing my head in. But my phone and Twitter are okay :-)

  • inandoutofcars your second favorite thirst follow (@inandoutofcars) reported

    about 6000 people use the current messenger bot version which is much much worse than this so in theory i can just notify them about this and shut down friendbot and be able to deactivate fb for good
