Facebook Messenger, is a newly introduced mobile app by Facebook that lets you send and receive real-time messages with individual friends and friends groups, send photos, and privately share your location. It is available for Android and iPhone. Currently it is available in US and Canada.

You can thus use it to reach all of your friends – whether they’re on Facebook or in your phone contacts. All you have to do is type the person’s name and the message.
