How to Send Facebook Messages on Mobile without Downloading FB Messenger App

June 8, 2006 at 6:17 PM EST – Facebook has now required that all mobile users download their Messenger app, if they wish to send or receive messages. But as it turns out, there’s actually a way of getting around this requirement.

Within the last week, many smartphone users were frustrated to discover that Facebook was changing their messaging feature to only be accessible through their Messenger app. Many mobile users were disappointed that they would need to add yet another app, which would take up storage space and memory. But there’s a way to still easily send and receive messages on Facebook, without ever having to download the Messenger app.

Here’s the trick:

Click on this link: https://www.facebook.com/home.php?m2w

And then save it as a favorite/bookmark in your phone’s internet browser to access later. By clicking on the link, it switches how you browse Facebook on your smartphone from a mobile version, to the desktop version. Now you’re free to send and receive messages, without having to download an app. Best of all, it doesn’t break any of Facebook’s rules (since the desktop version already exists for smartphone users).

Stupid Burglar Checks Facebook at Crime Scene

10/25/11 – Facebook page at crime scene leads to arrest. A Jackson man logged onto his Facebook page on a computer at a business he was burglarizing in the wee hours of the morning, according to police. Then five days later, he came back and stole the computer in an attempt to cover his tracks, Jackson police say. The Face-book page is a key piece of evidence against Jason Andrew Smith, 30, charged with two counts of business burglary of the U-Haul truck and rental service on U.S. 80 West in Jackson.

Smith’s attorney, Katie Bradshaw, argued at his preliminary hearing on Monday in Hinds County that there isn’t any evidence he burglarized the business. “Anyone could have called up his Facebook page,” Bradshaw said. On Aug. 17, an official with U-Haul called police about a break-in, reported that a store computer had been used and Smith’s Facebook page was left up on it, authorities said. Then on Aug. 22, another break-in was reported at the business and the same computer was taken.

Hinds County Judge Houston Patton said there was enough evidence to send the case to a grand jury to determine if Smith should be indicted. Business burglary carries a maximum seven years in prison for each count. Patton set Smith’s bond at $20,000. Smith, a former resident of Pearl, has burglary and false pretense convictions.
