An anonymity switch

In general terms I am content with messenger. I mainly use it to have individual contact with someone and where I can leave personal information, like phone number, address, and the like. I realize I could use email for that, but it requires leaving the app and going into another part of the computer. (I am not a techy, so I don’t know the right words for things, but I hope you get it.).

The one thing I lack on a daily basis, or wish I had the option to do, is get on messenger without the whole world seeing I am on at that moment. As soon as I open messenger I get messages and while I am grateful for the friends, I would really like to just have time to read my messages and respond without being seen until I am ready. This would be a HUGE IMPROVEMENT on this site! Thanks for taking this under advisement. I’m sure there are others that feel the same way!

A couple things need to be fixed

There needs to be a better notification when someone you’re not friends with messages you. Message requests are banished to an unintuitive corner of the screen where they are too easily overlooked. This is a huge problem for networking and connecting with members of your groups.
Lately when I’ve been opening conversation threads on the app, I find the text from the last message I sent duplicated in the composition bubble. The message was sent, but the app copied and kept the text. Just annoying.
When communicating with marketplace buyers, the thread is always labeled with my name first and then the product. This is really confusing, especially when I’ve responded to more than one listing. I open the app and it’s just lines of my name. Makes it hard to distinguish between conversations. Please alter it so that I can see the name of the person I’m talking to- or no name at all, just the item description.
Otherwise, rare glitches and good phone quality. I use this app constantly and it is very reliable, kept up to date, and is worth having.

New update looks really bad

Most of the people I’ve seen have just been complaining so I’m going to try and make this review at least a little helpful. This new update has so much wasted space. Just yesterday the formatting was pretty much perfect from a design standpoint, but now there is so much unused white space at the top of the screen. Even just the word “Chats” takes up so much unnecessary space which previously encompassed everything that wasn’t actual chats (like stories and your profile info. The previous design was perfectly fine and there was no need to change it, and changing your design completely won’t make a significant number of people suddenly decide to download the app. If nothing else, give everyone the option to go back to the previous version.
As a lover of web design, I know white space can be useful, but it can be extremely harmful if there is too much unused space, and that is exactly what happened. You messed up with this one, but there’s still an opportunity to fix it, or at least canter to those who know this is bad design.
