Facebook Messenger

Facebook Messenger seems to be emerging as a popular instant messaging and call service, particularly with 15+ teenagers in my area.  While it is integrated with Facebook contacts and other features, there are separate mobile device apps for accessing Facebook Messenger and Facebook.   As FB Messenger does not appear as a separate social network for cyber safety control, how can I limit regular Facebook (a constant distraction) while providing more flexible access to FB Messenger?

Hi Chris

Thanks for your suggestion. Because Messenger and Facebook both use the same servers, it will be difficult to separate them, but I will get our network team to have a look at this and see what we can do. 



Have you had any luck with finding a way to block messenger?

Hi Daryl,

As previously mentioned by Hugh, Messenger uses the same domains/servers as Facebook so we are unable to block one and allow the other
