Some Things To Keep In Mind

Parents need to know that Messenger lets users text, voice-message, send video or photos instantly, or call contacts from their mobile devices. They also can use third-party apps, such as Messenger-specific versions of Talking Tom, JibJab, or dozens of others to send short videos, GIFs, or other creations. Users’ phones make a sound or light notification when they get a message, and users can see when someone else has viewed the messages they send. Notifications can be turned off, but the user remains logged in. Users can send messages to individuals privately or to groups they’ve created. Unless the location notification is turned off, anyone who receives a message can see on a map where the sender is. The app is updated every couple of weeks. Even without a Facebook account, users can sign up for Messenger and add contacts by entering phone numbers.

Messenger is a Social Networking app that is designed for those 16.  The app has an overall rating of 3 out of 5 and a learning rating of  out of 5.
