Smile How to avoid using Facebook Messenger

If like me, you resent having to use Facebook Messenger on your mobile to access your messages, you can still access your messages without using Messenger by visiting https://mbasic.facebook.com/messages

You will need to click on the person's name to open the message thread.

If you use the Chrome browser, bookmark the page and add a shortcut to your home screen so you can access the page quickly.

Why would you want to avoid Messenger? Messenger is about to start serving up ads, avoid constant notifications, and save space on your phone.

I like iOS 9 Messenger - use it daily!

Type a basket ball icon to a friend. Now touch the basket ball. Top is 31 by my friend. I'm on 26 and now struggling!

You can also do the same with a football. Not as good though...
