Well, I still haven’t installed Facebook Messenger on my phone. The battle has been going on for almost three years now. Surely it can’t go on forever, can it?
First they took it from their app. It seemed annoying to remove functionality from an app. I became irritated. I avoided installing the separate Messenger app. Then I found out I could open it from a separate web browser on my phone. I did that for a long while, until they killed that too.
That’s when I found a way to force the phone web browser to open Facebook as the desktop page rather than mobile. This works to this day.
Three years, three years.
When will it end? Will I even care about Facebook by then? It’s hard to say. Facebook desktop in a mobile browser is annoying as crap, but this is personal. I’m not moving until they force my hand.
They probably will.
