Facebook Messenger now available for BlackBerry
Another app that's said to compete with BBM has hit the BlackBerry platform. Facebook, the world famous social network, has released an individual messaging app dubbed "Facebook Messenger." At launch, the app was available for Android and iOS devices and today, the BlackBerry OS has joined the party.
More and more of us rely on our phones to send and receive messages. But it isn't always easy to know the best way to reach someone on their phone. Should you send an email or text? Which will they check first? Did they even get your last message?We think messaging should be easier than that. You should be able to write a message, click "Send" and know that you will reach the person right away.
Messenger is a separate app, so it only takes one click to get to your messages or send a new one. Messages are delivered through notifications and texts, so your friends are more likely to get them right away.
You can use Messenger to reach all of your friends -- whether they're on Facebook or in your phone contacts. All you have to do is type the person's name.
