Facebook has announced that they will be removing the Facebook Messenger part of the Facebook mobile app and moving it over to a stand alone application.
The changes to the main Facebook app were revealed by Facebook’s CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, who explained the company’s reasoning behind the changes.
“the other thing that we’re doing with Messenger is making it so once you have the standalone Messenger app, we are actually taking messaging out of the main Facebook app. And the reason why we’re doing that is we found that having it as a second-class thing inside the Facebook app makes it so there’s more friction to replying to messages, so we would rather have people be using a more focused experience for that.”
The changes have apparently started rolling out in Europe to the Facebook mobile apps, and will be rolled out to other countries shortly.
Facebook is apparently looking to speed up Facebook messaging, and by releasing a stand alone version of Facebook Messenger, they believe will solve the issue.
What do you guys think, is this a good move from Facebook, or would you rather have all of the features in one application instead of two.
