Facebook Messenger lands on Blackberry App World

Research in Motion has a solid challenger to their Blackberry Messenger platform now with the arrival of Facebook Messenger on the App World.

Facebook has offered their Messenger application through their website for a while now but this is the first time that this app is available through the official app store on the Blackberry platform.

This increases the visibility of the app comprehensively also making it easier for the Blackberry owners to get it on their phones.

App features:

Reach friends wherever they are with Facebook Messenger.
-Message a friend or start a group conversation
-Reach friends on mobile or web
-Get push notifications
-Know who’s seen your messages
-Attach photos to messages

This is a pretty strong challenger to Blackberry Messenger especially because BBM does not let you interact with people outside the Blackberry ecosystem. Facebook of course lets you chat with users on desktops, Apple iOS, Google Android and other platforms.
