Facebook Messenger for Linux Mint 15 Features

You get some great communication features in Facebook Messenger, including chat windows, friend requests, a chat sidebar and, of course, Facebook notifications. You won't see your newsfeed content, but it's really not made for that.

Facebook Messenger Appeal in Linux Mint 15

Facebook Messenger really isn't my cup of tea, I'm not big on chatting. In fact, I have chatting turned off on Facebook. I used to have it turned on, but I had too many people wanting to chat and I just didn't have time for it.

Those who love to chat will really like Facebook Messenger though. It's perfect for anybody who gabs constantly with Facebook friends and relatives.
