Facebook not updating on blackberry
Facebook Messenger is a free mobile messaging and chat app for smart phones that lets people send text messages, hold group chats, share photos or videos, and even make voice calls to their Facebook pals.
This instant messaging app is available for i Phone, Android, Windows Phone, and Black Berry phones, as well as the i Pad. One of the big draws of Facebook Messenger is that its text messages and voice calls don't count toward the monthly allowance that users have on their cell phones for voice calling or SMS texting plans.
And the reality is that many people, especially teens and those in their twenties, use Facebook more for messaging than anything else, so they can chat with friends.
The mobile Facebook Messenger app puts that function front and center on their phones, without other distracting features like Facebook's news feed or ticker.
Any can download the messenger and use it on an Android phone; it's tied to the phone number rather than to a Facebook user name or email address.
Also in December, Facebook released a revamped version of its Poke feature, turning it into a standalone mobile app that lets people send disappearing messages, making it similar to Snapchat.
From the start, Facebook Chat was baked into the social network on the desktop or Web, and it worked inside the Web browser, with no separate software required.
Only the interface is slightly different based on which of those three versions of Facebook you're using.
In 2008 Facebook first released an instant messaging feature as part of its website and called it Facebook Chat.
Poke never really caught on and Facebook eventually stopped promoting it.
In early 2013, Facebook added free voice calling to its mobile messaging app, first on the i Phone version and then on the Android version, though it did not roll out in all countries for the Android right away.
