Have to keep up with the times, and the kids/teens are using Whatsapp to chat. I personally stopped using Facebook messenger when it started asking for SMS reading abilities in the last few releases.
The last thing I want is Faceybook reading my texts with their ridiculous privacy controls.
The deal includes "leaving the brand intact" so it will be interesting to see what Facebook does with the company.
Will you be uninstalling? What do you use for messaging your friends?
