There is a new feature being tested by Facebook that lets you connect to people without adding them to your friends list. It’s called Messenger, and it uses your Facebook address book as an address book. You can send and receive messages, photos, documents, videos, GIFs, location, and voice memos. You can also access Extensions, which allow you to send everything from recipes to Wall Street Journal articles to your friends.
After you’ve signed in to Messenger, you can look at the list of Message Requests from friends and send a message to a contact. Tap the Filtered Messages heading and scroll through the list. If you’re sending a message to a person who’s not connected to Facebook, the message may go to their Other folder. The person you’re sending the message to may not be able to see the notification.
Messenger also includes a Context Card. This card contains basic information like location and local time. This information is helpful if you need to quickly reply to a question about your location or time zone. Additionally, you can include relevant notes in your Context Card, which saves you time. Whether it’s a message for a friend or a colleague, a Context Card helps you save time.
Messages can be shared with other Messenger users, including your friends and family. If you want to chat with a friend on Messenger, you can send a message from either platform. You can also share photos and videos. Messenger also lets you share your birthdays with your friends and family. You can also add more Facebook friends by clicking their profiles. And, you can share your status information via Messenger. So, now that Messenger has the capability of storing your private Facebook messages, you’ll no longer have to worry about losing those messages.
