Facebook has been among some of the most popular brands when it comes to the world of internet technology. The company has brought forward a large number of changes in the way the markets work, and they have now been introducing many of their own apps into the markets. The company is looking forward towards building its own ecosystem of apps, and things look like they are going to pick up pace as Facebook has now almost been ‘enforcing’ the Facebook Messenger app.
Facebook has many apps in the markets, the main Facebook App, followed by Facebook Messenger, Instagram, WhatsApp, Moments, along with various other variants of its main apps such as Facebook Lite, Facebook Mentions, Facebook for Work, Facebook Page Manager, etc.
However, the messenger is quite special to them. Under the main Facebook branding, it is the second most popular app after the Facebook app in itself. With over 900 million monthly active users, the app is second only to Facebook at 1.69 Billion users.
Facebook has slowly been enforcing the Facebook Messenger upon the users. The next big step that has now been taken is that the company has removed the ability to Chat from Facebook Mobile website! Users who wish to chat would now need to install the Facebook Messenger app.
According to reports, tapping the chat button in the toolbar now results in a message informing the users that “your conversations are moving to Messenger,” and that “soon you’ll only be able to view your messages from Messenger.” However, for the moment, users can dismiss the notification.
The whole ‘messages’ option going away basically renders the Facebook Mobile website to a tool for posting and reading stuff, but still not being able to communicate fully, which would only be possible with the help of the Facebook Messenger.
