Facebook to Shut Down Messenger for Windows
Facebook has revealed to users that its Facebook Messenger application for Windows will cease to function come March 3, 2014. The service, which was originally introduced in March, 2012, allowed Facebook users to communicate with other Facebook contacts without having to go to the website through their Internet browser. The social networking site has stated that it is shutting down the standalone Messenger application for Windows because it is more focused around building the best mobile experience possible for its users.
While Facebook Messenger will no longer work for Windows starting early next week, it can still be installed and utilized on Android and iOS devices.
