Stop Freaking Out About Facebook Messenger

Once again social media has rewarded the hysterical. As you may have heard, Facebook is forcing users to download their individual Messenger app if they would like to message fellow Facebook users. This has been a built-in feature to the current Facebook app, but now they are breaking it out for several reasons.

Know that Facebook is not doing this just to spite its users. Instead, Facebook is attempting to complete on a large scale with the many other popular 3rd party messenger apps (Line, Kik, Whatsapp, etc.) Especially outside the U.S., 3rd party messenger apps are extremely popularand breaking out the app means Facebook can develop and focus on its messenging features to compete.

Facebook's New Face: Open

The one feature that is drawing me back, despite its terrible name, is Chat Heads. ​

Why I Unlinked Twitter and Facebook

For the longest time I had, like most people, Tweets automatically ​posted to my Facebook profile. It seemed effective, post once and have it show up on both of the main social networks I utilize. Then it became a chore.

With apps like Instagram you can post to Twitter and Facebook simultaneously. I wanted to tweet the photo, obviously, but I prefer how the photos appear on Facebook when they're direct from Instagram (rather than just a link in the FB status). Same with apps like Vine and Foursquare. ​I could always go to Facebook and delete the duplicate post, but that was getting tedious.
