Facebook Messenger app launches


Facebook has launched a new mobile application this week called Facebook Messenger, which allows users to send short SMS-like messages to one another, similar to popular apps such as GroupMe or WhatsApp.

According to Mashable, it's already the top selling application on iTunes and many online commentators have been questioning whether it will give Facebook power over network providers if more and more people turn to Facebook Messenger instead of sending a text message.

Obviously it's still very early days, but it'll be interesting to see whether everyone downloading the app now during the initial buzz will actually put it to good use in the future...
