    I love using both apps but I never understand why I would have to have both.. Like Facebook messenger I obviously use to chat to ppl on Facebook then there is the actual app that I use sometimes to read post or put posts of my own.. The Facebook app does have a messenger and they upgraded with the bubble chat so u can see if your friends are messaging u n stuff.. I just don't understand how come when I chat with ppl from the Facebook app I would never get notifications until I open the app and check it myself which is why I use Facebook messenger cause it does notify me.. But I feel it's pointless to have the Facebook app and messenger app

    You should be getting notifications for the Facebook app.

    In the app goto Account Settings > Notifications > Mobile Push and select what you want to be notified about. Then goto the phone Settings > Notification Center > Facebook and make sure it is turned on.

    Such a very nice post. Facebook is a complete access point including online chat while Facebook Messenger is an online chat application not including the whole Facebook Features.

    I don't think that you really need both apps, but what it comes down to for me is integration. It's a roundabout way of doing things and maybe it will become more streamlined in ios7, but if you go into your contacts app and click on someones Facebook IM link it will launch Facebook Messenger to that contact so you can send them a quick message without opening the entire facebook app. Likewise if you just want to see what your friend John Doe is up to, and you have no desire to get lost in your newsfeed or timeline you can click his Facebook Page name and it will launch the Facebook app directly to his wall.
    It is a little convoluted at this time as to how all this works, or why you would even want to go through the hassle, depending on how many contacts you have of course, but the functionality is there to built upon later if Apple sees fit. Of course having said this not having all of your contacts from Facebook syncing over to your phone, as has happened in recent releases of the Facebook app, completely negates the usability of this design choice.
