    We really need a messenger.. What about stinkers by the way?? Any way to send and see stickers from a WP. I ain't saying integrated chat is bad. It is good for basic part. But as we need a separate app even though facebook is integrated deeply in the OS, we need a messenger too. To have features on par with other OSes
    Go to the website then right?

    "available:,"busy","away"are basically same thing in case of facebook integrated chat.just checked now. :-(
    Weird. Away shows me as offline to other people, and I can receive messages too, and send them.

    Stickers and presence (and stinkers :-) ) are good examples of my point from a few posts above. As Facebook make changes or introduce new features, it's hard for Microsoft to keep up in their generic messaging app. It's probably OK for e-mail and SMS which are well standardised and don't change (much) over time. But for a service like Facebook which is continuously evolving, a generic app will always lag behind and integration with all the different services will be messy.

    That's why I think an app from Facebook is needed..

    Integrated chat needs - group chat, photo sharing, video sharing, stickers sharing, "writing" etc.

    Stickers are so useless...i dont need them, smileys are fine. but gruops, and photo sharing are most welcome! "writing" / "read" are also good. Video sharing...i dont care. But who knows, maybe they improved it?!

    I think integrated chat is good only for casual chatting. I mean say, if you want to tell your friend a website or some number etc. But for serious chatting, like I do with many of my classmate girls, it is insufficient.. :-D
    I think let the chat be as it is and tell Facebook to build an app for us..
    By the way, I'm surprised how Facebook can change their application to the likes of iOS 7 and can't even make an app for us. Also, where was their brand gone while redesigning for iOS 7, that they told MS to drop the Metro version of WP app?? Isn't it some kind of partiality??
    MS is the biggest name in the tech world yet suffering so much. I think MS should tell others what it actually is.. Come on MS show them what you are..

    I just use the messages tab in the app, but hey... some people use FB like SMS.... Try whatsapp or kik or skype. All of them work significantly better than FB messenger and have extra features.

    Here also is the problem what MS has done... Providing us with multiple crippled ways to use FB, opposed to one good solution. I truly wonder who are behind this mess, they should be fired. The integrated chat (or whole FB) is a great idea, but who thought it will be ok to leave them so crippled? Now we need the app anyway...

    Ohh sorry.. Actually it's 2-3 seconds late. Still pretty late for me. And other things, actually I need FB chat to be in touch with my girlfriend. It's the easiest and cheapest way for us. And those features make messaging a bit more convenient. I find the chatting experience on Android better than my Lumia, that's it. You may not need it, but many people need it. And it's good to have those features, ain't it?? I mean more is always good.
    I get my message sent by USPS, and it's still slow. But I know what you mean I get a IM, read it then the toast comes, I guess to remind me to re-read it.

    Yes, it's slow very very much.. Not good enough for chatting. And nowadays, my Facebook beta also gives notifications very very late. Whereas my Android messenger gives me instant notifications..

    With WP8.1, Both the store merges programmatically. And I guess FB will definitely extend their support to the mobile platform too!
