This changes things a bit.
And I find it interesting that Facebook is making us download a completely different app for our phones because it’s going to “Do Away” with the message option on their regular app.
I’m tellin ya, if I didn’t need FB for this job, I’d get rid of it and just roll with Twitter.
So let’s say you’re one of the Million people that have downloaded the FB messenger App…
I know I did, and I CERTAINLY didn’t look at the “Terms Of Service” that we agree to when we install the app.

Check these out:
According to the Huffington Post:
- Allows the app to change the state of network connectivity

- Allows the app to take pictures and videos with the camera. This permission allows the app to use the camera at any time without your confirmation.
- Allows the app to read you phone’s call log, including data about incoming and outgoing calls. This permission allows apps to save your call log data, and malicious apps may share call log data without your knowledge.
