Facebook chats have been around for a while and as is the norm with social networking sites, chatting is always an integral part.
A lot of people would simply log on to Facebook on their computer even if it’s just to send a chat or simply respond to one. Though for those that access Facebook on mobile, they have no choice but to access chats through the Messenger app, except for Facebook Lite users that are still allowed to access chats through the Facebook Lite app.
However, if you are the type that would prefer to chat on your computer instead of making use of your phone just like you can do with Whatsapp probably because you are busy on your computer and you would not like to take your hands off your computer keyboard, then this is for you. Furthermore, if you don’t want to get distracted by the various kind of posts and ads on your timeline when you log on to the main Facebook site, then simply go to messenger.com in the same browser in which you are logged in to your Facebook account and you’ll be able to access your Facebook friends and chat with them.
Messenger.com has actually been around for some time, but it’s not well-publicised by Facebook for reasons best known to them, so a lot of people that have heard about it may not even remember that it exists. So, I thought I’ll put it up here to remind those that may have forgotten about it or have never even heard about it before.
If you like to use Whatsapp on your computer, then you would likely make use of the messenger.com site as well.
