Facebook's plans to become an empire of mobile apps got a little more interesting today as the company began notifying users in a few European countries that in two weeks, they won't be able to message friends through the Facebook app anymore. They'll need to download Messenger for iOS or Android to do so, the company's popular chat app. The messages button will remain in the Facebook app, but will boot users out to Messenger when tapped.
A Facebook spokesperson confirmed to The Verge that stripping Messenger out of the main Facebook app is not a test, and will at some point in the near future happen in every country.Facebook To Turn Off Messaging In Facebook: Messenger Will Be The New Way [theverge.com]
