Earlier, Facebook Messenger was only available for mobile users but was later made available to computer or laptop users as well. However, if you are using Facebook on desktop, you don’t need to install the messenger separately, just click on the icon on the top right corner of the screen and the messenger will open.

Not only Instagram, but several other social and gaming apps also facilitate Facebook login to let you enjoy their services. Apart from this, major brands like HP, Hotmail, Twitter etc., have their official support pages on www.facebook .com so you can login and contact them whenever in need.In case, you face any sort of difficulty while logging into Facebook due to hacked Facebook, Suspended FB account, Disabled FB account, etc., Facebook offers really effective ways to get back or recover your account.
