Facebook Messenger secure P2P payments rolls out all over the US

Mobile payment transactions may not be the standard yet but there are a lot of people who prefer this method simply because of its ease and convenience. Others are simply worried about privacy and security but developers like Facebook know how to make an app secure all the time. Frequent updates and releases make sure the app is  always in tip-top shape.

Facebook Ads Manager launched, complete with marketing tools for businesses

Facebook is still the most popular social network today. It’s been the top social website for young and old alike. Thanks to Mark Zuckerberg, it’s not going away anytime soon. It may be No. 1 but admit it or not, this website has more disadvantages rather then advantages. Of course, that’s just the cynic in me talking but as a parent, I don’t think I’d want my kid spending a lot of time in there because there are just too many things that can happen and be explored.

Sign up for Messenger even without a Facebook account

Not everyone who wants to use Messenger necessarily wants to be on Facebook as well. Apparently, this is one of the learnings that the social media giant has received, or so we assume, as they are now allowing non-Facebook users to sign up for the stand-alone messaging app, as long as they have a mobile number. Although this is now limited to just four countries, we can expect this to rollout in other countries as well, sooner rather than later.

Doodle Draw is first Facebook game on Messenger

Since Facebook announced last April that they were opening up the Messenger API to app developers, we knew it was only a matter of time until games finally come on board. But while there were a lot of GIFs, video, and even talking pet apps, we had yet to see one that you could really call a game on this message platform. But now, the first "official" game has arrived, and Doodle Draw may be something familiar to those who played a similar game a few years back.

Facebook intros new way to send map, location pin in Messenger

Sending one's location in Facebook Messenger is easy. But honestly, it can be annoying at times because more often than not, I would be pressing the send location button accidentally during a conversation. My fault for being careless but I'm pretty sure I'm not the only with the same problem. Facebook wants to provide the best mobile experience for everyone so it regularly updates both the main app and Messenger. Recently, Facebook Lite was launched for low-end Android devices in Asia.

Facebook Messenger adds “chat ID” for first-time chat buddies

All of us who use Facebook Messenger have probably experienced this once or more than once. A message from an unknown person suddenly pops up and he/she seems to know you or have met you recently, but for the life of you, you have no idea who they are and so you don't know whether to talk to them or not. Sometimes you ignore them and miss an opportunity or sometimes you do talk to them and waste precious minutes of your life.
