  • alex_roddie Alex Roddie (@alex_roddie) reported

    @DaylightGambler @markrickaby Fortunately I never used WhatsApp. The problem for me is twofold: 1) All my friends and family use Messenger exclusively; 2) I still need a Facebook account for work :( I'd delete it tomorrow if I could.

  • landonkfowler Landon Fowler (@landonkfowler) reported

    @VZWSupport Thanks, but we have no interest in adding another line. I’m sure many who’ve had Verizon service for an extended time are in the same boat. I talked with your support on Facebook Messenger and was given no option but payment plans. Disappointing.

    @SwiftKey There is a Small Bug. When trying to login to Facebook Messenger, the app struggles to open & change From Alphabet to Numbers.

  • KantJungRand Eric (@KantJungRand) reported

    @bill_slawski We experimented with FB Messenger widget. People used it more often, prob bc the UI is better. But the problem is I don't have someone who can man that 24/7 so I wind up not being able to respond as fast as the fully-automated chatbot, which sorta defeats the purpose

    @CleverTitleTK I have been in an ongoing 2-year Facebook messenger argument with a childhood MAGA friend of mine who has very questionable reasoning skills. He won't stop talking about how Bruce Ohr is going to bring down the whole tent around the Dems 😂

  • usharoni Usha Quint (@usharoni) reported from Howell, Missouri

    DirecTV Now is not worth it. You cannot pause or rewind live tv. You can only contact the company via FB messenger. They are not knowledgeable, and they have horrible customer service. Switching back to PlayStationVue #directvnowsucks #FirstWorldProblems @directvnow

  • peglegcegjeg CJ stands for Clint Jeastwood (@peglegcegjeg) reported

    So yeah, if you need to reach me today, FB Messenger will be the quickest bet, followed by tweeting because I'm just gonna sit here for the rest of the day to cool down from the second-least helpful customer service interaction ever.

    I would like to reiterate on here that I DO NOT have Facebook messenger on my phone. If you need o get a hold of me right away, call me or text me. I won't see a message on here until I sit down at my computer and log in.

  • MVLibertas Mat Vaillancourt (@MVLibertas) reported

    Almost everybody do monetization at point or another. The thing is seeing the plus and the minuses of a given service. I love reading some publications even if they take some of my data. Don't go often on FB (been using it since early 2007) because it's crap. Messenger is useful.

  • AmbiguousOracle Jennifer 🐈📚🎶 (@AmbiguousOracle) reported

    @AntNFrenz is braver than the troops for playing some boggle knock off thing with me on Facebook messenger while I avoid going back to work. Thank you for your service.

  • SherryWilberLMT Sherry Wilber (@SherryWilberLMT) reported

    @ACLU I am being banned/censored by Facebook over making a joking comment on another post. They will not let me submit a report that I feel it's an error and rolled out more punishments so that I can only use the messenger now. They said I may not know the new ToS guidelines :(

  • BethGreig12 Beth Greig (@BethGreig12) reported

    @SkyHelpTeam well I got transferred to Facebook messenger help at 14.50 and guess what still no help! I honestly have had enough now. I want my complaint dealt with!! It’s been ignored since 14th December now!!

  • bummal_ Jenkins (@bummal_) reported

    How terrible is fb messenger. I sent a couple of msgs but they seemed to have been sucked into some kind of black hole and I can't see anything.

  • wdk535 wdk535 (@wdk535) reported

    So yeah, I'm fed up with the security problems on Facebook. I will be giving the Morningstar videos to Pastor Larry Peterson to post on his page and I will be minimizing or eliminating entirely my presence on Facebook and Messenger.

  • staringispolite Jonathan Howard (@staringispolite) reported

    @michaelsayman I wonder if we'll ever fix the problem of "Lock-in" in these new services. eg. I can port my phone number, since the gov't basically forced them to allow this, but I doubt Facebook is letting me "port" my Messenger identity any time soon...

    @VerizonSupport That’s unfortunate that I can’t contact Verizon directly by email. I tried via FB messenger and they were unable to assist me and told me to contact customer service via phone during business hours which is when I’m at work as well.

    @yardsoflenin This is correct but also you can @ me as I do have a personal account. The issue is opening Twitter via Facebook messenger defaults to the other account and I didnt notice rather than opening through chrome app. My bad
