Facebook pushes mobile users to Messenger app

Zoe Kleinman, BBC, Jun 06, 2016
Commentary by Stephen Downes

I have already objected to this on my Facebook feed. Facebook is removing messages from its mobile website and requiring that people use its messenger app. I removed this app quite a while ago because it was the single biggest drain of battery and bandwidth on my phone. I'm not about to return to it. I agree with Devin Coldewey at TechCrunch: "it strikes me as quite a hostile move." I won't be using the messenger app, and I'll be looking more more friendly social network options.
