How to Disable Facebook Messenger

While Facebook Messenger is an excellent tool for rapidly calling friends and family, what happens if you want to take a break from chatting as well as would like not to be troubled? Did you understand Messenger enables you to shut off chat so that you will not show up in your friends' "Active" listings? Friends can still send you messages also while you have conversation turned off, but by seeming "inactive," you may discourage them from doing so.
