We all are well aware of Facebook being the most used social media platform. There are millions of people who log in on Facebook on daily basis and communicate with their friends and family. Facebook has been busy connecting people from different parts of the world by providing a platform to talk and learn about each other.
Facebook has been adding different features to their platform to make it easier for people to connect with each other. One of the additions they made was Facebook Messenger. Initially, it was just a way to send and receive a message to all your Facebook friends, but now after the passage of time and to meet up with the competition they have added several other options to Messenger.
How does it work?
A messenger is a tool that requires the user to have a Facebook account first. Those who already have a Facebook account just need to log in from the messenger using their details from Facebook id, but others cannot make any use of the Messenger until they have a Facebook account.
Features of the tool
Messenger connects you with all your Facebook friends. You can look up your contacts using their phone number. Also, when a new contact joins the application, you will be notified. You can then Wave or send gifs to welcome them to the application.
Sending text messages is not the only purpose of the tool, but you can also send photos and videos. As per the latest update of the application, users can connect using a voice or a video call with their friends. It is just like any other communication application, but more systematic and secure.
You can make groups on Messenger and send messages to more than one at a time. There is also an option to leave the conversation if you have been added to an unwanted group. The features offered in a personal and group conversation are the same.
There is a game controller icon in the conversation that you can click and get a list of interesting games. This means you can enjoy in-app games with your friends with an option to add more people to it.
You can share your location and know about your friend’s location with the Show Location option in the application.
In case you are using the application on your business page, you can design a greeting message for your visitors that will be sent to them on your behalf when they want to connect with you through Messenger.
It is a free application, and there are no call charges to talk to your long distance friends. You can talk for as long as you want without worrying about the highly expensive call charges.
There are many ways provided by Messenger to express your feelings or pray gratitude. There are different emoticons, gifs, masks, and effects that you can add to your conversations and make them even more interesting and worthwhile.
Facebook Messenger can be downloaded from Google Play and Play Store.
Just like the standard Facebook application has been upgrading itself for a better internet surfing experience, Messenger is going through a lot of upgrades and removing communication gaps. It is quite an easy to use tool with a secure connection and encryption. Highly recommended!!
