Mark Zuckerberg’s social network has insisted on making things difficult for us. Rather, in what has been insisted Facebook it is to make us “go through the stone” and to use the applications they want in the devices that seem right to them. This “on devices that look good to them” is what matters in a blog like Ubunlog, as from now on the famous social network will block access to the messages section in your web application.
The point here is that if our device is Android or iOS, well, let’s go to our app store, go through the stone and install Facebook Messenger. But what about users of Ubuntu Phone? Canonical mobile operating system users accessed Facebook chat from the web browser, which I know also did a lot of iOS / Android, but that won’t be possible from now on. What will be seen will be an image like the following.

The Facebook movement is incomprehensible. If you are aware of the latest movements on the Zuckerberg social network, you will know that Facebook is betting on the artificial intelligence and, yes, they are still involved in the advertising business. In any case, if what they want is to know more about their users, can they not collect our information from the website? This would be comparable to WhatsApp having a web version that did not depend on a smartphone and suddenly stopped offering support. The only thing they get is that users “lend” them less information that could be useful.
In any case, I think you have to be patient. Chances are that sooner or later some developer will step forward and create a compatible app, but it must be acknowledged that Facebook’s latest move is annoying. Has it affected you?
