You can now sign up for Facebook Messenger without a Facebook account
All you need is a phone number and a picture to get started on Facebook Messenger now. The company has dropped the previous requirement, which was a Facebook account. Signing up for the service is simple, just download the app and select the "not on Facebook" option to use your phone number to sign up.
You can download Facebook Messenger free from the Windows Phone Store, and get started using it with just your number now.

Jared started off writing about mobile phones back when BlackBerry ruled the market, and Windows Mobile was kinda cool. Now, with a family, mortgage and other responsibilities he has no choice but to look for the best deals, and he's here to share them with you.
In a way, it's a nice idea I think. The facebook messenger will now actually be a "messenger".
why don't they merge messenger and whatsapp already?
But that's available on Android
Hope it comes to Windows phone
its not possible. Ha ha....
I hope they don't mandate everyone to use phone numbers for their app in the future, if they do I'm uninstalling it.
