Facebook Messenger is a popular tool that lets users message anyone with a Facebook account, whether through Facebook or the standalone Messenger app. It’s especially useful for group chats, offering benefits like assigning admins, adding or removing users, and quickly finding shared media or files. This article covers everything you need to know about how to send messages to multiple friends on Facebook!
Are you ready? Let’s get started!
Before you dive into sending Facebook messages, here’s what you need to know. If you’re already a pro, feel free to skip ahead. But for the newbies, read on.
Firstly, there are a few ways to get into Facebook Messenger:
1. Try the Facebook Messenger app for iOS or Android. You’ll need to install this on your mobile device.
2. Use Facebook’s website.
3. Explore the Facebook Messenger website, which offers more features than the Facebook site.
You can either download the Messenger app on your mobile device or use the website on your computer or phone.
