It turns out my daughter is sexting with a couple of boys, sending naked pictures of herself over her phone.
The negative reaction seems to have been spurred in part by a December 2013 Huffington Post blog article titled The Insidiousness of Facebook Messenger’s Mobile App Terms of Service.
The article, by Sam Fiorella, which has been “Liked” on Facebook more than 785,000 times, has helped to fuel the fire of public outrage with statements like: Yesterday, the post was updated to correct the author’s errors around the conflation of Android-specific permissions and Facebook’s terms of service, (which Facebook says are the same for the Messenger app as the Facebook website), and the outdated descriptions of its permissions.
Although the Messenger app is available for Android, i OS, Windows Phone and Black Berry, the main source of user angst comes from the lengthy list of app permissions you have to approve before you can download the Android app from Google Play.
Among the permissions the app requires are several that have given users reason to complain – when you install the Android app, you have to grant access to your device’s contacts, microphone, stored photos, videos, SMS messages, location, and more.
This move has led to a backlash against the social media giant, and it’s not just because Messenger is a separate app that takes up a lot of extra device memory.
Messenger offers much more than the traditional chat available on Facebook.com, including the ability to place calls, send videos, and send messages from the home screen without opening the app.
Although there are numerous sites like Chatrandom, Chatroulette & Omegle, very few of them are as amazing as Streamberry.

Those permissions are similar to those required by other messenger apps, such as Snapchat or Viber.
