More about Facebook Messenger service

Facebook Messenger is an American instant messaging app and platform developed by Meta Platforms. Originally developed as Facebook Chat in 2008, the company revamped its messaging service in 2010, and subsequently released standalone iOS and Android apps in August 2011 and standalone Facebook Portal hardware for Messenger-based calling in Q4 2018. Later on, Facebook has launched a dedicated website interface, and separated the messaging functionality from the main Facebook app, allowing users to use the web interface or download one of the standalone apps. In April 2020, Facebook officially released Messenger for Desktop, which is supported on Windows 10 and macOS and distributed on Microsoft Store and App Store respectively. Users can send messages and exchange photos, videos, stickers, audio, and files, as well as react to other users' messages and interact with bots. The service also supports voice and video calling.

What should I do if Facebook Messenger is unavailable?
If Facebook Messenger is UP but you can't load the page, here are some helpful troubleshooting steps:
Try refreshing your browser page or close any accompanying applications and retry opening them.
Check if access to Facebook Messenger is blocked
Access to Facebook Messenger may be blocked due to an antivirus or firewall configuration either on your own computer or phone or by an employer or network. Check for anti-virus programs or firewalls installed on your machine. Alternatively, try to use the website or app via another network like one on a mobile phone so you can access Facebook Messenger.
Clear browser cache and cookies
Try clearing your browser cache and cookies and change the IP address of the computer by disconnecting and reconnecting the internet. Then try to access Facebook Messenger again.
DNS Cache
To clear the DNS cache on your computer, look up instructions for your specific operating system online. Then try to access the Facebook Messenger site again.
Web Browser Plugins
If you are still having trouble accessing Facebook Messenger, you may try to disable web browser plugins (like ad-blockers) which may be interfering with access to Facebook Messenger
