Facebook prompts mobile users to get friends to download Messenger

imageFacebook is making another push for mobile users (and there are many) to download Messenger, the site’s standalone chat app.

This time, Facebook is asking its users to make the pitch.

Reader Matteo Gamba of Wimdu noticed that, while chatting with a friend who doesn’t have Messenger, he was prompted to ask his chat friend to download the app.

Within the conversation, there was a banner on top, prompting Gamba to copy a link to send to his friend.

The link leads users to a page promoting free texting capabilities, as well as fun stickers.
