I take advantage of Fb primarily for work, for instance to submit hyperlinks to new articles on the positioning to customers who comply with Ghacks on Fb. In the present day I observed that I might not entry the messages that different customers despatched me on Fb. A click on on the Fb messages icon mechanically redirects to the Messenger.com web site. It is fairly awkward to make use of that desktop website alongside Fb, simply to learn and reply to messages. I received a login message however did not actually need to log into the positioning. I closed the tab and tried to discover a method on Fb to finish the redirect and begin accessing non-public messages on Fb once more.
I could not discover an choice to do it, not in settings or anyplace else. Logging out and logging in, and utilizing a special browser, have been additionally unsuccessful. An investigation on the Web confirmed related issues, however they have been revealed years in the past when Fb started redirecting the message portion of its cellular websites to the Messenger website. Customers steered choosing “use desktop website” in that case, however this was not an possibility in my case because the desktop website was already loaded. Others steered accessing numerous cellular websites on Fb, however the messaging element was apparently faraway from them.
Opening Messenger.com and logging in added one other situation to the general expertise: I could not see new messages that customers have been sending me. I knew I obtained some non-public messages, however these weren’t displayed on the Messenger web site. I made the choice to examine the Fb Messenger utility on Android; put in it, logged in and there have been the brand new messages. I have not seen them on Messenger.com but, however once I began replying to some and received replies they began exhibiting up on the Messenger website.
It might be an error or the Messenger website is overloaded. Maybe there are others who face the identical drawback, who don’t just like the change, and maybe there may be somebody who is aware of an answer to the issue. I do not need to use Fb Messenger on my cellular, and I do not need to use the Messenger website (even when it labored). Fb has a confirmed curiosity in getting customers to make use of all of its merchandise, and that is most likely what is occurring proper now.
Now you: Are you able to entry Fb messages or do additionally they redirect you to Messenger?
