You now need a Facebook account to sign up to Facebook Messenger


When Facebook Messenger was first introduced, it allowed users to sign up for an account by using their phone number. Surprisingly, Facebook has made changes to Messenger, which now requires new users to have a Facebook account in order to sign up for the service based on a statement by venturebeat.

Fortunately, those who already signed up to Facebook Messenger using their phone number will not have worry, as the new changes only affect new users. With all that said, what do you think of the changes made by Facebook? Let us know on our Facebook page and for more updates like this, stay tuned to
