How To Use Facebook Chat On Your Phone Without Messenger
You may have heard the privacy concerns with installing the new Facebook Messenger app.
Whether or not the new app is good or bad is hard to say.
Either way, there is a way to send messages on Facebook from your phone without downloading and giving full access to the Messenger app (at least for now).
Simply login to Facebook via a browser on your phone.
This can be done on Safari, which comes loaded on the iPhone, or Chrome, which can be downloaded to most devices.
One it is on a device, simply open the browser and login to Facebook just as you would on a desktop or laptop computer. The same process should work with tablets.
