you can keep using Messenger if you don't have a Facebook account.

If you've never had a Facebook account, you can sign up for Messenger with your mobile phone number:

  1. Open the Messenger app, enter your phone number and tap Continue.
  2. Once you've confirmed your phone number, add your name and photo to get started. You'll have the option to sync your contacts so you can message anyone in your phone.

If you had a Facebook account and deactivated it:

  • Using Messenger won't reactivate your Facebook account.
  • Your Facebook friends can still find you on Messenger and Facebook Chat.

To add people to your contacts on Messenger, enter their phone numbers
messenger app if needed.

Facebook and messenger keeps kicking me off? I was in settings and I pressed Facebook and messenger? Thought I would find out how to copy and paste, I know tech illiterate!?

Once you are logged in you should remain logged in. If you aren't then it is the internet connection that is doing it not the app.

Messenger is part of Facebook and on a computer it is within the webpage. On a smartphone, it can be part of the Facebook app and also a separate Messenger app. You can use both.

Can phone calls be made using messenger on facebook

From the Facebook Help Center:

How do I call someone from Messenger
To make a call:
  1. Open a conversation with a friend.
  2. Tap g">. If the icon is gray, you can't currently call this person.
Keep in mind that you may not be able to call people if their phones aren't connected to the internet. Placing calls through the Facebook or Messenger apps may use your existing data plan.

Hope this helps.

Is it true the facebook messenger app can be used to spy on you


Not to be the bearer of bad news, but any information you put on the web can be linked back to you. Since you have a username that is unique to you, it could be traced.

I would suggest having a look at the FB privacy statement and terms and conditions. The have targeted ad-based marketing that stores "cookies" on your computer to track your interests.

If tracking you means spying on you then the answer to your question is yes. How not to be tracked? Don't use the service, or limit confidential information.
