    @UOHelpMeEurope I ordered two items on Black Friday, one still hasn’t arrived and your customer service has been shocking ever since. I have been ignored by both email and Facebook messenger regarding my order. I don’t know any other online retailers that are as poor as you are.

    @HayleyMulch First, just delete all your stuff off FB and leave the account. If you want to delete your public activity (“likes” & such) you have to do it 1x1. There are alternatives to messenger. You can help people transition, it doesn’t have to happen immediately. Keep Instagram for now.

    @ifthenpod question 1: I have deleted the facebook app from my phone and I’ve been disconnecting fb from all of sites / services that it’s connected to. I use messenger and local to keep up with people and invites. I feel like that’s the best use of the service without deletion.

    @CNN It would be easy to avoid. A text message is not: Facebook messenger, Yahoo messenger or any other form of internet app that messages. Text messages are network supported direct texts which are actually called short message service (sms) messages.

  • tminus5
    Travis Leonard (@tminus5) reported

    @torrHL @JDSupra @USATODAY I.e. if you truly tax text msgs (that's SMS sent as a network msg not as data service) then you won't collect on iMessenger, WhatsAll, FB Messenger, etc etc... so yet another case of taxing a dying revenue source akin to fuel taxes

    @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

    @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
