No Comments

Every day millions of users are active on social media. Whether it be news or entertainment, people frequently visit their feasible social platform. The use of social media in today’s time is in such hype that the facilitators need to work on their strategies time and again to keep their users intact. ‘Too much of anything is boring’ Likewise the concept of UPDATE lives on and the enthusiasm keeps on rising. Many are familiar with Facebook Messenger. The Messenger is an instant messaging service and software application launched by Facebook. From the day of its launch till date, Messenger has 1.2 billion active users. This counting was achieved way too sooner than Facebook.

The app has made it easier to chat with Facebook friends, via separate portal. Besides chats, messenger has included stickers, emoji, GIFs to improvise the way people chat. On top of that sharing, voice clips, pictures and videos have made the Facebook chats even more interesting. The “CALL” & “VIDEO CHAT” service is an additional feature which was later updated for the convenience of users to give more of a real-time chat experience. Just like Skype, with Messenger it is made easy enough for the users to sync with their contact list as well and alongside start a video conversation as per the user’s consent. Furthermore, Facebook has also added a feature of multiple account support. It means that you can have more than one account to log-in. If you have more than one Facebook account, you can switch to any of the other making only one account active at a time.

We might have noticed that Messenger now comes with an updated service of “YOUR STORY”. A new update has rolled out similar to the features as Snapchat and Instagram. Apart from chats, audio and video chats, Messenger has broadened its facilities to real-time visual flair. Like Snapchat and Instagram, users can now upload their stories by clicking on “Add to your day” that appears on top of the main chat menu. You can now share instant videos as your story of the day on your Messenger that lasts for over 24 hours. Unlike Snapchat, your story can be viewed by your Facebook friends. If you have 1000 friends on Facebook, filtering most common and usually connected friends, around half of your friend list can view it and react to your story. Besides videos, you can even share instant pictures or even the ones saved on your device. Glamorize with filters like in Snapchat or doodle on them or write texts on them or use stickers to amplify your story.
