The newest app updates disable messenger within the Facebook app, forcing you to download the Facebook Messenger app. I will grant you that it is a battery killa and that needs to change. But as usual, the internetz has devolved into a puddle of muppet-like arm-waving, and ravings about privacy because this new app requests access to your microphone so that it can hear your surroundings.
Why does the app want to hear your surroundings? Der. Total NSA KGB bullshit, y’all. Big Brother is totally listening.
Or maybe Zuck really needs an awesome holiday cookie recipe and wants to listen in when you call your mom.
