Must read from MG Siegler on the motives behind AT&T’s latest move.

And now for our daily dose of comedic relief (whose message actually rings true).  Check out “I Just Texted to Say I Love You” above.  Thanks, Mashable!

I’m sure you’ve all heard about the new Facebook messenger app, but if you haven’t, here’s a brief summary.  The social networking giant has created a messenger app that allows users to send messages/texts through the social media service.  It’s essentially Facebook chat for your smartphone, allowing you to continue previous conversations or start up new ones with your friends.  Get a full break down over at Mashable.
I’m positive some people will latch onto this like no other.  I know people that turn to Facebook chat as one of their top ways of communicating with others, and this could very easily replace texting if a group of friends have smartphones and remain constantly logged on to Facebook.
I, however, find this to be a little overbearing.  Besides the fact that I’m not really a fan of Facebook chat to begin with, why chat someone when you could just as easily text them?  It seems a little much for me.  There’s no need for someone to stay constantly connected to a social network in such a way.  Then again, it really is no different from BBM, which I absolutely loved when I had my BlackBerry.
