Here at MobilityNigeria, we always knew that Facebook was targeting mobile in a big way. So, it did not come to us a surprise to hear of the arrival of Facebook Messenger, a new mobile app, for Android smartphones and iPhones.

How Does Facebook Messenger Work?

The Messenger app is an extension of Facebook messages, so all your conversations are in one place, including your texts, chats, emails and messages. Whether you’re on your phone or on the web, you can see the full history of all your messages.

Messenger lets you reach all of your friends – whether they’re on Facebook or in your phone contacts. To send a message, type the person’s name.

FB Messenger supports groups, photo attachments, and locations. Messenger mobile app is available for both iPhone and Android.

Facebook Messenger for iPhone and Android


  1. Is a good news. However I should pon t out that as at present, the Facebook messenger app is only available on the US iOS app store. It isn’t available in the UK OR Nigerian Store. So we still have to do some waiting!

  2. Mark, how come it took you this long.

    Brilliant idea, what else is remaining most people are already on Facebook.

    This is the perfect competition for BBM (RIM), iMessage (Apple) and Skype (WP7).

    I have already downloaded the iOS app to my iTunes.

    How come we have only iOS and Android apps, where is the WP7, BBM and Symbian apps.

    Quick Mark, this is your opportunity to take over the Communication world.

  3. Everyday, I get another sign to leave Symbian’s sinking ship and move to android.

    How much better is this app over fMobi for S^3?

  4. Good job.
    See what formidable competition can do .

    With the threat of Google (and the upcoming iMessage) aways a clear and present danger. Zuckerberg and his thinktank team must have had to permanently put their thinking faculties in overdrive.

    I tend to prefer webapps (as an existing alternative) to mobile app (discussed @ )

    ( surprises me)

  5. Hmmm…all these apps that reduces relationships to ‘pings’ and IM’s. All the same, its a cool app, kinda enjoying it.

  6. I am having problems loading etisalat data package on to my smart phone. I am not getting the requisite internet settings for my smart phones from Glo and etisalat. Can you please help.

  7. If the mobile world were to be Nigeria symbian would be Niger delta and would always cry of marginalisation . I see myself jumping ship pretty soon, I can’t stand being marginalised .. “Me sef like beta thing”

  8. Actually, it wouldn’t be only Symbian. Both Blackberry and WindowsPhone are generally ignored in the grand scheme of things. Oh, and there’s MeeGo and WebOS too.

    Are we ending up with two major mobile OSes and others?
