    All I can think about is how much that domain name must have cost.

    Can't wait for the future when I get an unsolicited message from a business. It'll happen.

    It definitely explains and even justifies the decision to pull Messenger completely out of the main Facebook app. Doing something like a platform for Messenger would be much more difficult if they had to build it on top of the primary app (and all of the attached dependencies).

      I think it was pretty obvious this was what was happening the second they pulled it. Messaging is a pretty hot space right now.

      With that said, Facebook's mobile web-app is much better than their native apps. When they removed messenger from the main app, I decided to uninstall the main app as well. It was a great decision.

    interesting idea, but i can see this turning into a bloated mess very quickly. at least they used the perfect gif for this announcement.

    Too bad I'm never downloading this app because of the terms of service, so I just have to be crippled when attempting to use Facebook's chat function on my phone.
