Store links in group chats...

Facebook messenger is pretty straight forward with what people need.. you have a place for photos in chats.. but something I think it needs.. is a place that stores all the links people share for re watchability and or re use ability.. and would be very great full because if you have 20 people in a chat and they hardly stop talking and sending links and instead of sitting through hours of chat to find links you could just click on the options for the group go to saved links and easily re use them..

Wrong account

I first logged into messenger and everything was fine. Then it said that I was a guy named hoang Li. I said no and everything was fine again. It asked for a pic of me to make sure I was the right person, I gave a pic of the beach thinking it was for a profile pic but then later gave a picture of me. It said I was the wrong person and logged me out for weeks. I was able to retrieve my account - at least I thought i did. I used my phone number, confirmed my email address, made a new account and then was put into that same guys account. Now I can see his messages and all of his information and all his chats. It won’t let me log out or go into my original account. Every time I try, it says unavailable and keeps showing up. I can’t do anything so I have to get out of the app completely. I need to use messenger for school reasons and sporting things but now I can’t access any of it. Please fix this!!

Dangerous to use Messenger

I thought I was talking to a friend on Messenger as could see her picture there, “She” chatted and then told me I would scarcely believe this but there had been a special promotion and she had won $200,000! She said I should have a look as she had noticed my name on the list. As it was a friend (I thought) I believed this. They said they would check and get back to me. Of course my name was on the list. I rang my son to tell him the good news. As he works in digital he said I should ring my friend. She told me I was the third of her friends to be almost caught by this. This is exceedingly dangerous as we trust our friends. Another friend said it also happened to her but as they had chosen a neighbour she got suspicious and asked the neighbour to come out onto the veranda and wave to her. The “neighbour” said she was out of town so it was a scam

Why use Messenger at all? Why not just email each other?
