MG Siegler of TechCrunch on Facebook’s new mobile Facebook Messenger app:
There’s one other big reason why Messenger is likely to out-iMessage iMessage: cross-platform compatibility. iMessage will only work for iOS users. Facebook Messenger works on both iOS and Android devices. And there is one other massive place Messenger messages work: Facebook.com.
I download this app, but really didn’t see the point, especially since it doesn’t do Facebook chat. But Siegler makes a good point. I hadn’t considered the cross-platform compatibility. I am going to have to give it more of a chance I guess.
