    Socmed AI sustomer service is really user friendly like i'm so happy to he able to just search a company on FB and then text them on messenger and their AI just take care of the whole thing. Need to figure out more on this. How can we apply this for our company.

    @nitzbluv No it's because the app you are using to group chat with is broken. iPhones and Androids communicate perfectly as long as you don't use Apple's broken communication apps. No one should be using iMessage or texting they are both crap. Use WhatsApp Facebook Messenger, Telegram

  • Col_RobertsUK Colette Roberts (@Col_RobertsUK) reported

    @SkyHelpTeam Thanks but no. I’ve already had a totally unsatisfactory conversation via FB messenger. I’m done with Sky and I’ll be leaving in October as soon as my contract is up. Your customer service is diabolical. Have a good evening.

    @CadiChieftain @waltshaub @MollyJongFast I dont know how. But the person that shared it with me said If I post it directly to twitter or fb my account will get shut down. I can send it from my messenger to someone else's tho.

  • EvelDick EvelTom (@EvelDick) reported

    @bb21Nicole1 Horrible. Slow as ****. Chrome browser slows it down so much, but it has to be running all the time on it. Everything is a pain in the ass because it's so ******* slow, even typing this is a pain. The apps don't work right. Had to uninstall Facebook and messenger

  • Spencatro Spencer (@Spencatro) reported

    @Peer_Rich Messenger (I don't really use actual Facebook though.) SMS / MMS are terrible unreliable lossy protocols that require you to keep mappings between meaningless numbers and names. Messenger is much less lossy, ime way more reliable, and no numbers to keep track of.

    @musclecarmag as a result I may have missed out on an issue I didn’t even know was for sale, I cannot even order it as a backorder because that part of your websites not updated yet either, obviously I won’t receive a reply here, just like Facebook, and Messenger

  • Scarlett_J_RDU Scarlett Jones Raleigh Companion (@Scarlett_J_RDU) reported

    @Ensiform I never installed the FB app or messenger on my phone and it's a lot better this way. I only use it in my phone's browser or on my personal computer. If you're going to take the plunge, I recommend this is the way to go. Maybe don't even use it on your phone if you can help it.

  • AndroidEducator ձռժгօﻨժ εժսcձէօг (@AndroidEducator) reported

    @sogeumstan Its 100% iMessages fault. iMessage sucks at communicating with Androids because it's a horrible broken app. If you use any other communication app Facebook messenger WhatsApp anything else iPhones and Android's will communicate perfectly. Stop using broken iMessage.

  • JulieErick3 Julie Erick Save What We Love (@JulieErick3) reported

    @UrsulaV @randomize27 @Czhorat I replied to a Facebook post(stop and frisk is rather a huge problem to me, and I said so), and received a message from the campaign in messenger. The suggested answers in the chat made it look to me like an expensive AI chat bot or push poll app.

    @FearFaDeDSavage The reason why I for the help and shares as well is because I just found out that my only surviving grandmother is dying, my mom contacted me on fb messenger, my grandma lives 3 hours away from me... 😢😭😢😭😢😭😢

  • kaceyleann_95 Kaceofspades (@kaceyleann_95) reported

    I got the new iPhone 11 today which was really fun until I realized my iCloud didn’t backup photos from the past TWO years. Please please please send any pics you have of us. Text, FB messenger, Insta DM... I will take you to lunch and we can airdrop... Please help 😭

  • OneFineJay Jay (@OneFineJay) reported

    @JonnyMicro I downloaded my Facebook messenger archive with him. It was a specific request: "when I fly out there I'd have the shirt off my back so help me out with some clothes" and I was like "of course and I'll send you money for a departure outfit too when the time comes"

  • PainterRandy Randy Dueck (@PainterRandy) reported

    PayPal deducts a fee when you use them to donate. When using Facebook Messenger it has no fee so 100% of what you donate goes to help me share God'Love & HisWord with the least of these here in RedBluff!

  • hockeymom6871 Marie (@hockeymom6871) reported

    @vishalprash @smhkmn @AirCanada I couldn’t get through to that either. I tried email, Facebook messenger and twitter. I had to tweet until I got a response and it took a few days for my issue to be resolved via DM’s.

  • FootballindexTG Football Index Trader Group (@FootballindexTG) reported

    @DaniloFITrader This was via Facebook messenger. Luckily we have honest traders in our group that will happily expose scum like this. This individual messaged this new member directly to supposedly help a new trader out. Luckily the new trader messaged us as knew this was wrong

  • ecyorke Cinderallah (@ecyorke) reported

    @alice_radley @ericowensdc You don't have to have phone service on your phone for Facebook's messenger to function as a phone. That's why so many people use it like a utility.

  • ecyorke Cinderallah (@ecyorke) reported

    @ericowensdc @alice_radley Facebook's messenger on a phone functions as phone service, which is a utility. Except for geriatrics I suppose. lol

  • JamesRobertsco5 James Robert Scott (@JamesRobertsco5) reported

    @sanglucci Yeah you gotta be careful these days there's some really deranged people out there. We let our oldest daughter have those and it was nothing but problems. We made our 12 year old a Facebook to put all her matches and games and stuff on. But no messenger though.

  • Imdragonman420 Yo Yo Eat Water (@Imdragonman420) reported

  • CaravanNut David Bell (@CaravanNut) reported

    So, erm, asking for a friend... if someone who’d bought your old car tracked you down via the car’s V5 (and your lapse Facebook privacy settings), & politely asked via FB messenger if there’s anything you could share on any issues you may have had with your old car, would you;

  • Cbarron15 Conor Barron (@Cbarron15) reported from Dublin City, Leinster

    @paulbuckl_ey Oh right. Yeah that it interesting. Like I wonder are they sending a notification in the same way that they would when you get a message from a human (assuming you have that turned on) or is it like FB messenger ads where they are just there when you login

    Heart broken.. I don’t even have the words to describe how I feel.. feels like a nightmare that I can’t wake up from. Never in a million years thought I would go through life without my little cousin @GorgeousNeshaa. No more snap, fb messenger, or text conversations smh. 💔😭

    @NFC_christman Company has a lot of good assets (FB, Messenger, Instagram, Whatsapp) but its struggling to monetise those. Growth has slowed down a lot over the past 1.5 years and company itself is suggesting worse days lie ahead.

    @frmshahed @Facebook I was hacked about a month ago, & now I'm locked out of Facebook & Messenger. I've been to a Verizon store twice & Best Buy twice. They've both attempted to help. I just keep trying. I've been sent about 20 numbers to reset my password, but it just sends me back to same page.
