I have a suggestion

This is a pretty good app in my opinion! I use it 24/7 to talk to my friends. I use it more than my phone’s built in texting app. I love that you’re able to video chat with people, see if they’re active, and you can personalize the chat a little bit. The biggest complaint I have though is that you can’t delete images from the photos and videos section of the chat’s settings. You can only delete those things from the actual conversation. This is bothersome to me because I talk a lot to my friends and if I want to go back and delete some old images, I’m unable to because they’re too far up in older conversations. I also can’t search my conversations anymore because it always bugs out. It won’t load the conversations and then after that, the app won’t work at all. If you could take these things into consideration, especially the deleting suggestion, then I would very much appreciate it! Otherwise though, this is my #1 messaging app!

Rather old Facebook message

I deleted the Facebook messenger app because I was unable to delete things that were sent to me that I did not want. I was getting all kinds of scams asking me to take something I didn’t want and saying I won things I never won. I was using it on another device and I had a problem with my device after that and it was not working anymore. I have a new device that is very expensive and I do not want a virus attack because of a link in this messenger app. The main thing I deleted the app for was because I could not delete things that I did not want. I could not keep people from sending me things there was no way to block that person from contacting me with these things that I know are scams and possibly someone was hacked on the app I don’t know. I just did not feel safe using that app anymore. I have people that can’t contact me now from Facebook because they have no other way to contact me. And I cannot message them unless I use the FacebookMessenger app! If you could correct these things I’d feel safe about using it again. I don’t think we need video chat or whatever you have now! Just get back to the regular Facebook messaging please!I only want messaging my family and friends that I cannot contact otherwise! If this app is not changed I will have to take it off again and keep it off! Then my family and friends will no longer be able to contact me since they have no other way to do so other than Facebook!

#1: when I’m typing a reply to one of my friends and someone messages me simultaneously, it closes me out of the conversation and erases all of what I had written and just brings me back to my inbox and it’s really frustrating because it happens every single time and always seems to happen when I’m typing long messages and then I have to start all over. PLEASE FIX ASAP!! Cause I just wanna use a different app to talk to my friends now but would prefer not to! This has been a thing for 2-3 weeks now and hasn’t changed even though I update it every time I get the chance to. Just downloaded the update for today so I’ll see if that makes any difference, but I highly doubt it because the update didn’t list anything about bug fixes.

#2: this glitch just stared happening yesterday (June 1st, 2020) where I haven’t been getting notifications for new messages. I made sure to check my notifications were on in my settings, which they were, but my friend sent me a message at 9am and didn’t get it until 2:50pm. So please fix, again, this is very frustrating and I don’t want people to get mad at me and think that I’m ignoring them when I’m not. I hope you read this and can do something about it, please and thank you.
