Facebook: Messenger wants to replace SMS, more necessary account

Peter Deng, product manager at Facebook, was yesterday in the 2012 edition of "LeWeb" show being held in Paris. On this occasion, he announced a revolution: it is now possible to use Messenger, instant messaging social network, just with his name and phone number, without having a Facebook account. For society, the idea is simple: replace the SMS which recently celebrated its 20th anniversary.

 Peter Deng is on the right

After the little phrase Xavier Niel on arrival two years of the new Freebox, so it makes a Facebook announcement scale during one of the sessions of LeWeb 2012 being held in Paris .

so he was required to have a Facebook account to login to Messenger until now, Peter Deng announced that it is no longer the case and it is possible to do so via his name and number phone. This feature might interest some users want to keep in touch with friends and family, without having to create a Facebook profile.
  
Messenger via his mobile number, an idea thought for the anti-Facebook?

Once connected, the application will search in your address book your friends who are also on Facebook and / or Messenger. They will then be automatically added to your contact list, so you can converse with them. Obviously, the group management is still in the game, and you will be able to transfer pictures in addition to text messages, as is already the case in Messenger.



With all Messenger, Facebook wants to replace SMS ... good luck?  

The confession of Peter Deng, the goal for Facebook is to replace the SMS which recently celebrated its 20 years of existence and has been created for the mobile era. Contrary to the latter, Messenger knows to take advantage of various features offered by smartphones lately: locational, image capture, touch screen, etc.. Facebook could also improve the system by taking advantage of the experience of WhatsApps, a company specializing in instant messaging, if the latter leaves crunching as recent rumors suggest .

Orange also has more or less the same conclusion and decided to go on a more complete solution: Joyn, the trading name of the Rich Communications Suite. As a reminder, it proposes to replace everything calls, file sharing, instant messaging, SMS and MMS with a single solution directly integrated into smartphones, regardless of operating system or operator.

What about confidentiality and user verification?

Anyway, if the idea seems attractive on paper, we must see what is in practice since, for the moment, we do not know if Facebook will conduct an audit of your number phone before you can talk to your "friends". It is also hoped that will not be a way to encourage users to join Facebook in a more or less discrete and insistent.
