The messenger icon in the Facebook app, which is supposed to be placed all the way to the bottom of the screen (next to friend requests and notifications) just disappeared suddenly. How can I get it back? Btw I have no idea how to add a picture to the thread.

Are you referring to interface update of Facebook app? Please note that messenger is basically a separate app now, integrated into your Facebook, so as a previous contributor suggested - check if you have Messenger app installed on your iPhone

I have the messenger app installed on my phone. That's what makes it so weird :/ It looks like this:16180511_1226815907425788_5213510781701718016_n.jpg Suddenly it just disappeared

No, not that I can think of. The thing is, I can still use messenger, but I have to get out of the facebook app and then open messenger from the homescreen. Before, I could just press the messenger icon on facebook to open it. But now, as it somehow has disappeared, I cannot do that anymore. Of course, it's not a very big deal, but I find it a bit weird and very annoying that I can't figure it out.

I don't see Messenger in mine either. It has a new "video" tab at the bottom.

Messenger is in the upper left corner.

I wish so, but all of my friends still have the messenger icon. Even those who have the latest update! It's just me who doesn't have it anymore. It's so weird

I don't seem to find a way to contact Facebook directly. I have tried to post a thread on Facebooks help center, with no luck so far.
