I really tried hard not to use facebook messenger. I already use text messaging, google hangouts, and slack. Facebook messenger was just one more messaging app to keep up with. Once Facebook decided to split the messenger app from the facebook app I was determined not to download it and instead would just access facebook on my PC when it was absolutely necessary.
I quickly found out that it was becoming more and more necessary as friends and family quickly adopted the messenger app as their main means of online communication. I know baffling. As it turns out if I want to speak to my mother I have to do so for the most part over Facebook messenger.
If you find yourself in the same predicament as me and have realized that you do indeed NEED to use the Facebook messenger app you can now do so without the need for a facebook account. If you have made it this long without a facebook account kudos to you. With more than 1/8th of the entire world's population registered on Facebook your friends without an account would be few and far between. If you do know someone without an account they can now use the Messenger app without a facebook account. Upon opening the app just input your phone number, name and a picture and you are all set. You can chat away without an actual Facebook account in the US, Canada, Peru, and Venezuela.
