Wi-Fi Bug

Well, I was using messenger for a very long time, but in last time it started to lose internet conection on almost evry chat I have and anywhere I go, even on high quality wi-fi. I am using iPhone 5s and I have newest iOS so I don’t know what’s the problem. If you know something about this then tell me please. And one more thing: this is only happening to me on messenger, other apps are working properly.

Hello Facebook,
From the latest update (maybe 2) is something wrong with photos what I have sent and received. When you want to see them in “chat menu” with certain person or your group-chat. And there are only few of the recent photos. Time to time there are all of them. But mostly many of these photos are missing. Why is this happening?
It is not helping when I close app and start it again.
It’s annoying. Pls fix that. (I have iPhone 7).
Thank you in advance!
