Hitler with a pseudo maniacal twist

Everyday you use censorship on what takes place in “private” discussion between those that are conservative in their views. You may not fear Hell right know, but 5 seconds after you’re dead.....you’ll be screaming for water just like the rich man that’s already been there for over 2000 years.

Hacked??

1
I rarely use messenger but after using it this morning my iPad seemed hacked. Awhile back I downloaded the FB app which completely destroyed my iPad and I had to get a new one. Now after going on messenger today the same suspect behavior that I had with my previous iPad is happening again. I would not download this or the FB app. Something weird is going on.

Needs to be inside Facebook, like before

This is a pain. This app takes extra steps, extra memory, and extra battery for no improvement over old Facebook messages. Well, maybe super-secret mode if I needed it and understood its uses. Facebook needs a slim-down and a simplicity mode. Just one more reason why I seldom use it. I wouldn’t have Facebook at all if I didn’t need a presence for high school reunions, church, and a few other minor things. It’s sad when yahoo groups and MySpace evoke fond memories for their simplicity.

Pointless

Every time I open this app, there is an update! You couldn’t think of changing colors for the text when you created the app? Really? I’ve updated 3 times in three days! Get it together Facebook! Your website is already a useless waste of time as a means of entertainment! Every other app that changes color of text or makes phone calls did all the particulars when they created their apps! You’re slacking and you know it. And why have me create a nickname on my review if they’re all taken. More than aggravating!!!!!

An evasion of privacy. I try to stay off of this app. There are no helpful privacy controls and everyone ALWAYS knows when you are using it, even if the app is not being used, it shows a false status as if you are actively using the app. Unless you know how to manually force quit the app from your OS it will always give a false active status that you are online.

Annoying sounds

1
For the love of God, give us options to change your annoying default notification sounds and a way to truly mute in-app sounds. I don't need an alert telling me my message was sent. I can see it on the screen
