Many of use us it. Most of us cannot live without it. So it is no surprise that Facebook’s Messenger app has reached an an incredible 1.2 billion users across the globe.
Messenger burst onto the scene back in 2014, but was not initially welcomed by the social media hordes. Many did not like the fact that the app was being separated from its parent app – Facebook.
Initially people refused to adopt it. However, over time, it has gone from strength to strength with social media fans worldwide.
Of course the app has altered and diversified substantially since its inauguration and now encompasses games, stickers, location tracking and video calls.
What lies ahead for Facebook, Messenger and its users, remains to be seen but most will welcome progress.
Maybe not a first but give people time and they adapt to new technology eventually.
