    or stop communicating with your friends on your mobile device.

    Part of the unbundling process. Now be ready to spare another 45 odd megs on your phone for another resource burning application that sets Location on by default in new messages (Yes, you have to switch your location off for every convo!).

    Best of luck saving battery now.

    Do people actually use facebook chat this much? I use it only when there is no other way of contacting someone.

    Absolutely. When there is no other way. But I fail to understand the season for having a second app just to message someone. Why couldn't they just leave it in the Facebook app

    They are probably moving to turn their app into some whatsapp replacement of sorts. That is the only reason i can think of, future updates might push the messenger into a similar direction.

    Tried and uninstalled this. Now I just use good ol' Opera browser for chatting on FB. This app was a PITA.

    - Location settings on by default in any new chat. Why? Why would I wanna share where I am!

    stealing data from mobile, plus invasion of privacy.
    Although whatsapp pretty much knows all my exploits.
