Big Facebook change welcomed even if you're not on Facebook

Big Facebook change welcomed even if you're not on Facebook
Facebook

Facebook is the most popular social network on the planet, with over 1 billion active users every month, but it's still not for everyone. Facebook is now catering those non-account holders and allowing them to use its popular Messenger app without a Facebook account, so they can communicate with all of their friends and family who still log in to the social network.

Instead of logging in with a Facebook account, anyone can now log in to the Messenger app to their mobile number and sync it up with your contact list instead of connecting it with a Facebook friends list. The option is only available in the U.S., Canada, Peru and Venezuela right now.

The Messenger app already has 700 million active users every month, but that number will likely grow even larger now that it has removed the account login requirement.
