Non-Facebook users can have Messenger
Well, Facebook aren't bothered about that, and they've started making eyes at non-Facebook users and saying that you can use the app whether you're signed-up with Facebook or not. All you need is a phone number and a willingness to have your personal privacy poked at relentlessly.
The latest update will allow you to sign-up with their name, phone number and a photo. Now, this hasn't been rolled out in the UK yet, but it is only a matter of time before it is.
For those considering it, the Messenger app already has 600 million users, and you can send instant messages, as well as do video calls and play games on it.
"With this update, more people can enjoy all the features that are available on Messenger – including photos, videos, group chats, voice and video calling, stickers and more. All you need is a phone number," said Facebook's Louis Boval.
