Facebook Messenger is a new application introduced to 500+ million Facebook friends on Facebook. It lets you send and receive messages from anyone who is a Facebook friend or in your Android or iPhone contacts list.
If the person is a friend on Facebook, the app lets you decide where to send the message as either a Facebook message or a text message to a phone. You can also attach a location and a photo to the message. A message can be sent to a group of people which can be a combination of Facebook friends and people in your contact list that are a Facebook friend.
This is where things get interesting. You don’t need a message plan with your phone company. Scratch that and get the texting. This is an awesome feature for those youngsters just starting out and can not afford to pay for a commitment with any telephone company. WOW!
This means that the message sender does not need a text message plan at all.
