I don’t like Facebook messaging. It’s really an annoying process. I get an email telling me there’s a message waiting for me at Facebook. I have to click a link, go to Facebook to read the message and reply. It’s a two step process. Good old email is a one step process that is much more efficient.
Why does Facebook not put the users content in the email message they send to me? They want me to return to Facebook to drive page views. I don’t care about their page views. They should just put the message in the email they send and the sender’s email address in the reply field so it works as easy as email.
In the past day I have received more than five Facebook messages. They are too time consuming. I just installed the Email Me Instead app on my profile. If they does not stem the tide I am turning off notifications.
