Techopedia explains Facebook Messenger

Facebook Messenger is Facebook’s official entry to the instant messaging (IM) arena. Although lacking some features of a true IM, it is a revamped and improved version of the Facebook chat bar. With Facebook Messenger, users can view their walls, post and comment on notifications from their Facebook friends and be alerted when new messages come in. What’s great about this handy app is that it has a dynamic group conversation feature, is integrated with mobile devices and includes a location-mapping tool. Users can also send photos to their friends. Real-time video sharing, video messaging and voice calls are not possible through Facebook Messenger.
