Facebook Messenger: The Pros and Cons of Using the App and How to Stay Safe

Facebook Messenger is a messaging app that allows users to access their messaging system through Facebook without needing to access the social network. It makes it faster to chat and allows people to send and receive messages more quickly than if they were going through a mobile browser. It’s like texting but without the cost. SMS texting may cost up to $0.10 per message depending on the plan an individual has. MMS messages may be $0.25 each or more. Although Facebook Messenger uses data, users can send texts and pictures without accessing those costs1.

Facebook Messenger allows users to send files and links with ease. If you’re telecommuting or working at a mobile office site, this will keep employees in touch with each other if they are working on a project together1. Users can make calls and speak with one another. It also gives people the ability to speak within groups if they so choose1.

However, there are some concerns about Facebook Messenger. Part of the terms and conditions that are accepted when using Facebook Messenger include recording audio at any time without permission and calling phone numbers without intervention12. The main drawback of Facebook Messenger is the lack of privacy. By downloading the app, you agree to allow Facebook access to any and all audio recordings2. Messages that are sent through the Facebook Messenger app are NOT end-to-end encrypted3. This means that any message you send on Messenger could be seen or intercepted in plain text3.
