How to Get Facebook Messenger on Your Phone - wikiHow

Now, I couldn't care less about FB... I can't stand the Site! But I have a friend who doesn't even know how to use a Computer. But loves to get on FB and talk to people, with his Phone. I helped him get a Gmail address and sign up for FB, since he kept asking me to help him. I've already decided... that was a big mistake! Because now, he wont stop asking me to get on FB and look at something or help him figure out how to do something, on his phone without a Computer!:O I have never seen his phone and actually haven't even owned a Mobile Phone in 10 years now... So, it takes hours, every time I try to help him to get any thing done. What does your screen say now? No! don't go to the next screen until I tell you wat to click on!:O He doesn't listen well, either... Needless to say, I'm about done trying to help him at all. I've already told him that I have taught him everything I know about FB! But, I would like to be able to e-mail (Gmail) with him and send him Pics and Videos, that he can see on his phone. So, I keep on trying... Ok, back to FB. I know he may like this new FB Chat App. So, I'm sending him this, in hopes that he can install and us it all by him self. Well, we can all dream! Right???:O
