Facebook has begun forcing people to use Messenger after announcing its split for the main app in April.
Members have been left annoyed and outraged by the changes, and have flocked to the Android app store Google Play to complain.
This is in addition to concerns being raised about the app’s permissions, that give Facebook access to send texts and make calls on the user’s device.
According to Google Play, the app has access to find accounts on the device, read contacts, access the user’s, as well as edit, read and receive text messages.
Other permissions give Facebook the ability to directly call phone numbers, modify or delete files on USB storage, take pictures and videos, record audio, download files without notification, control vibration and change network connectivity.
