The usefulness of a separate app for messaging is a kind of question you might be tempted to ask. The answer is simply that with Facebook being used for other activities like posting pictures, watching videos, and reading posts, there was the need to satisfy those who use Facebook only to chat with friends and family.

To do this, they created messenger, a stand-alone app that properly portrays Facebook like every other messaging platform. However, you do not need a new Facebook account to be able to use Facebook Messenger.

It is connected to your Facebook account and also supports multiple accounts, meaning you can switch from one Facebook account to another comfortably. With Facebook Messenger, Facebook users can send and receive messages, videos, pictures, audio, and documents.
