Mostly accessible. There are some issues with the new 3.0 release. See Comment #41 for more information.
The Facebook Messenger is a great way to text each other for FREE. Those on the iTouch will love this if you have lots of friends on Facebook. My family all use the Facebook and is generally our meeting place to catch up with each other.
The Facebook Messenger not only allow us to only text to each other but also has a nice Thread of your conversations with the people you are talking with or to a group of family. I can now send an audio message to my friends. Plus, if you are in the United States. You can now make Phone Call with this app with out using any Cell Minutes. Works rather well. The quality of the Audio is least to be desired but it does indeed work.
I can see this being popular with those with the iTouch and those like myself where my friends on Facebook have an easy way to reach me. I find the app to be pretty accessible to use. A far cry from the Facebook native app.
