Last year, Facebook continued its surging growth: after winning its billionth user in 2012, it now serves 2.37 billion people or over a quarter of the global population! Facebook is a popular social media platform on every single continent, so it’s no wonder that Messenger is one of the most popular messaging apps in the world.
To use Messenger, you need a Facebook account and nothing more. You don’t need to have Facebook installed on your phone to use Messenger either, which is great for those who need to save some space.
Facebook Messenger isn’t only a basic text messaging service, either. Users can record videos, send pictures, play games with other users, make group chats, and make voice and video calls, too!
If your friends around the world have Facebook accounts, Messenger is one of your best bets for staying in touch. If they don’t have Facebook, there’s another, even more popular option available.
