Facebook Launches Standalone Messenger Website

If you look at how Facebook handles itself on mobile devices, you’ll see that the social networking service has been trying to establish its messenger feature as its own entity for some time now. Now they’ve applied this idea to their actual web presence and messenger.com will let you chat with your Facebook friends without having to see your feed.

This shouldn’t be surprising (though messenger.com is a pretty big score) given their mobile activities and even the company claims that the dedicated messenger website is intended to compliment the mobile app. The website is pretty straightforward, with your list of friends on the left, chat window in the middle, and some scarce profile information on the right. It doesn’t contain all of the features of the mobile app, but then again the mobile app is clearly their main focus. That also doesn’t mean that those features won’t come to messenger.com eventually.

Now the question is whether or not they’ll release a dedicated messenger desktop app. I would welcome it, as I’m one of the users who wants to stay in contact with Facebook friends throughout the day, but I don’t want the distraction of the actual feed. Being able to keep it out of the browser altogether would be a welcome opportunity.
