Re: Messenger
This is an interesting strategy by Facebook. Many users only really like Facebook's messaging capability, which means that the features of the main site are staying in the original app, while private chats are directed to Messenger. 

This means many people will simply use Messenger and that's it. I don't get the business case for doing that, but then again I've been impressed with some of the deicsions Facebook has made to take risks and innovate.

Messenger
I did download the messenger app and although I first thought "Great another app" it does intergrate pretty seamlessly into the facebook app. I very rarely use it but sometimes it comes in handy.

Organizations that have so far ignored social - either because they thought it was a passing fad or just didnít have the resources to properly evaluate potential use cases and products - must start giving it serious consideration.
