I dont like the stories!

How do i turn off this dumb stories setting! I hate it. I open my messenger and its there no way out im clicking and dragging to get to the place and reason i opened the app. But i cant. Im close to giving up on messenger and Facebook all together what a monster beast this social media thing has become. . But Id rather not become a www. technological/socialmedia missing person.
I dont want to see anyones “story”. I dont want you to produce a story for me and especially do not want to force anyone in my contacts to see every thing im doing. If they want to know they can ask and i will tell them or not! And i truly DO NOT CARE to look at what anyone is doing not weekly not DAILY AND ESPECIALLY NOT HOURLY!
Im not so full of myself that i need to boast or brag about my life nor do i need constant validation or reassurance from my peers friends or family.
So quit tracking us all in the guise of social *necessitories to turn us into algorithms for your gain. Its so obvious. Let me out give me the truth pill with oatmeal or a steak and cheap women i just dont want a story conceived by god forsaken Facebook Messenger! Thanks

This App is horrible.

As in the title, this app has a lot of bugs and it lacks many necessary features. I am only using it because it’s it connects me to my Facebook contacts, if it was an independent texting application, i would have never used it. Why when you add someone to a group, they can read every previous message? Why you can’t delete a message that you have sent (deleting it for the other person)? Why going offline (aka turning off chat) still shows you as “active now” but only with the green dot disappearing, so you are basically telling people “Hey, this person doesn’t want to chat with you”? Why does the video call button starts glowing when both you and the other person are opening the chat tab (so i might be reading an old message and the other person would think that i am stalking)? What about the profile picture bug? If someone (me or my friends) changes their Facebook profile picture, it won’t changes in messenger 99% of the times. Also when going to check pictures in an conversation, they might not load or load slowly. What about the “active 1 minute ago”? It appears always except if i turn the internet off in my device.
All those previous bugs, “features” and other lack of features make the app just horrible. Hope that you fix those bugs and remove those “features” and add other necessary ones.

Facebook Pay took my money for 10 days

Regular messenger user here, have used Facebook to pay friends a few times. The most recent time, I sent nearly $100 to my friend. I hit “send” and logged out of messenger— only hit 1 button and that’s it! Next time I log in I see that because my friend had also requested the money after I sent it, another near $100 was removed from my account. The second sum was taken WITHOUT AUTHORIZATION. I never hit “send” I was not even logged in to see the request come through.

What’s better, my friend never received the second $100, and I (after 7 days now) still have not gotten it back. I reached out to Facebook after 5days because their “help” section suggests waiting 3-5 days for bank transactions (keep in mind that this money should’ve never come out in the first place, now I’m waiting to get it back) and they get back right away with a very unhelpful automated response. After another message I was informed that it could take up to 10 days to get back this money. This is preposterous for a mistake that the platform made, I will never be using Facebook to handle my money again and would highly recommended VENMO to anyone looking to transfer money.
