  • ThisMyHandle Saad. (@ThisMyHandle) reported

    This pointless dependency on sim and phone being always online is the biggest drawback of whatsapp and it fries my mind as to why people put up with this ****. Why can't it be like facebook messenger or skype? if one device is down, you can easily continue from another.

  • Carol_Frazer Carol Frazer (@Carol_Frazer) reported

    @sainsburys typically every time I want to use my nectar points online then there is a technical issue and I can’t unless I go to the site defeating the purpose of online ordering. Your Facebook messenger assist aren’t helpful either.

    @BreakfastVC @SpecificTest @lockheimer If millions of people (specifically the ones without a default RCS messaging app installed) have no problem installing a 3rd party app like Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, etc then it shouldn't be hard for them to install an app such as Google Messages.

  • shiningrena argenta is a xiao haver 🌬️🍃 (@shiningrena) reported

    Is anyone else having issues with Facebook Messenger where your stickers won't load and once you access that, your messages don't get sent so you have to clear cache and relaunch the app to send messages again???

    Facebook Messenger Down? #messengerdown @messenger @Facebook @Meta

  • mandy04943435 galloping crazy (@mandy04943435) reported

    @AfibWithRiver This can come in many forms. For those i felt close enough to, and it wasn’t a safety issue- I’ve sent messages on Facebook messenger. Some coworkers have gone to wakes. Otherwise, just a pause, a moment to reflect is pretty darn powerful.


    Down horrendous just replied to a man via Facebook messenger

    @clhubes I had someone arrive completely at random in the middle of the day and call me via FB Messenger four times while frantically texting that they were here now for the thing. I brought it down and they took it with no eye contact and ran away.

  • stephforbes13 Steph Forbes (@stephforbes13) reported

    @SportsDirect_CS I will again, but I have previously. As well as Facebook messenger which has been ignored. Also received an email from Anthony at Customer Service this AM to say my parcel had been deliver! Funny that since I’ve not left the house. This a joke
