The Facebook Messenger application is made for those who take advantage of the Facebook Messenger from their computer. The application is designed for those who want to Facebook message their friends on their Android device, and it is possible to get and send messages speedily, as well as message everyone at the same time.

There is even a way to get mobile notifications, so you won’t miss any notifications. There is a way of programming messenger so you get a different ringtone when a Facebook message comes in, and you can include photos as well. There is also a way to map your location, but you don’t have to if you don’t want to.

The problem with this application is, unlike the Facebook Messenger on your computer, you cannot see who is on Facebook. This made Facebook Messenger fun and useful, as you could chat with a friend who just happens to be on Facebook, just like you. Perhaps the Application hopes that everyone will be on Facebook with this, and communicating will be as simple as texting.

You should be able to obtain the Facebook Messenger application on the Android market here. Keep in mind, it will post as an icon marked “Messenger”. I’m not certain why Facebook didn’t make it some sort of update to the Facebook application.
