    Last week an older gas station attendant asked me to help him delete the Facebook messenger app from his phone and when I did he said "thanks, I got ******* in there I don't wanna talk to no more. Always asking for gift cards" and then winked at me and said "you get it"

  • sequorem Seq (@sequorem) reported

    @LLumiya If you have the Messenger app installed, you can see if you have the stock notification log on your phone (not every android phone has it). Otherwise you can just try to contact Facebook assistance but i don't think that they are going to help

  • rumzy_rumz Rumzy Rumz (@rumzy_rumz) reported

    Facebook messenger now has a glitch. Responses to msgs now randomly gets a reaction. For those of you that are wondering why from a few weeks ago you get a reaction to a message it is because of facebook messenger glitch. Please do not use messenger for one day due to glitch.

    @TheKaufmann @ChuckWendig Yeah, I'm vastly more likely to get a FB Messenger message from friends (that's its own complaint, but never mind) and my 88-year-old dad always texts (hearing issues may factor in there.) RIP phone calls

    I put my number up one time for you but had to take it down because I don't want anyone else to call that might. I had hoped you'd unblock me on Facebook and friend me again. I won't be changing it again to hide from my ex. We could video chat in messenger if you like.

    I asked my students who still used Facebook today. 2 out of 26 students. 1 who used it to login to other sites and the other who used it for messenger. That shit is dying.

    @Converge_CSU no internet connection for tge last 2 days in Dalandanan, Valenzuela City. Your customer service is very hard to contact. All landline and mobile numbers are not working. Your fb messenger is a bot.

  • AhmedAlsaadyy Ahmed Al Saady (@AhmedAlsaadyy) reported

    @elli_aicha As for the picture, well, a friend of mine sent it to me on FB Messenger about two months ago, but upon talking to her again, I'll ask her where she's found it. Then I'll tell you. I'm at your service! :)

  • LFCRD lfcrd (@LFCRD) reported

    So, deactivating Facebook allows you to keep Messenger. Ideal. But if you *ever* login to a service (eg Spotify) with your Facebook account, it reactivates the entire account. Deleting is the only way to truly be rid of it. But Messenger...

  • shvangel shveta r c (@shvangel) reported

    You guys replied too soon to comment on this I think #Swiggy is better in their customer service. I'm disappointed by your customer service, you guys don't have customer care no and don't even reply in facebook messenger.

  • gregsedwards Greg Edwards (@gregsedwards) reported

    The Facebook app and related apps - Messenger and Instagram - for Windows 10 are all objectively terrible. They're either lacking current features or just super slow. I want to support the app ecosystem, but TBH it's rough going, you guys.

  • EngineerBarbie Nikki B (@EngineerBarbie) reported from Seattle, Washington

    @larrykim @B2Community That scares me. FB Messenger is not secure and that opens up issues for IG and WhatsApp.

  • Amy_Beckinsale Amy_C_Beckinsale (@Amy_Beckinsale) reported

    I’ve made a decision, since my #Anxiety has been a ***** this past week. Facebook & messenger has been deleted from my phone. Cutting down on how much I stay online. It’s effecting my health. I’ll be here still, & Insta, but be warned. You won’t be getting an immediate response.

  • NuttyKnitta Emma Williams (@NuttyKnitta) reported

    @SkyHelpTeam I find it VERY disrespectful that your Facebook messenger team think it's OK to read and then IGNORE messages. I use Messenger because I'm DEAF and therefore cannot use the phone. I deserve just as responsive a service as someone who is hearing gets on the phone 😡

  • TheDossOne Max (@TheDossOne) reported

    @SkyHelpTeam Got this response yesterday, tried that, again giving us a phone number or to use facebook messenger. To go through the same support. This is an issue with being unable to make SSL/TLS secure connections since the outage. Not my devices, not the hub which we reset

  • benjamin_blue Ben (@benjamin_blue) reported

    I really wish people wouldn't use the thumbs up reaction in fb messenger. I can't help but feel that it's a slap in the face to either react to a message with it or use it in place of a response.

    @gayleelynn @josephmenn @emptywheel English from what I can gather: 1. The PoPo wanted to get into voice messages MS13 gang members were supposedly sending using Facebook encrypted Messenger service. 2. Somebody at the ACLU and other entities wanted to know what happened in that case. 3. A judge said No Way Jose.
