It has been some time already, Facebook has decided to disassociate her site and its instant messaging, forcing its users on a smartphone to download the Messenger application. The public has more or less appreciated. If you are one of the people who do not wish to install the application, we will explain here how to use email in Facebook without Messenger.
To send a message to Facebook without Messenger : is it worth the shot ? .
In a word, no. Facebook seems determined to impose a Messenger, and this makes it very difficult to use its e-mail outside the application. If we can still technically get around it, the rumor that this will soon not be possible.
Honestly, and unfortunately, the easiest way is to use Messenger.
For those who are uncomfortable with this “solution”, we recommend that they move to another free email service such as Skype, Google Hangout or Whatsapp. You can also test Heyster, the social network made in France (available on iOS and via web browser).
How to send a message on Facebook via the internet browser of his smartphone ? .
Although this is not very practical, it is always possible to use the internet browser of his smartphone to access Facebook.com. The website is full of banners to encourage you to download the official app, but fortunately you can easily close them.
Once you are logged in to your user account, and that you have pressed the logo of the e-mail (the bubble with a lightning bolt), you will see a pop-up stating that “Your conversations are now in Messenger”.
Skip this one and go to your Menu (the three bars in the top right of the screen).
There, press Messenger.
You are then redirected to your e-mail, the same pop-up is redisplayed (yes Facebook is very insistent), but this time when you press the cross to close it, you’ll finally have access to your messages !
Use another app that Messenger to send messages on Facebook.
This solution does not address really to those who do not wish to download application but rather to those who, for whatever reason, do not want to specifically not use Messenger.
The most popular application to replace Messenger is called Friendly and it is available for free on Android and iOS.
Thanks to it, you can access all of Facebook, including your messages, in a single program.
