Facebook launches broad expansion of Messenger app

Source: Facebook

A few years ago Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg explained his vision to build a family of apps to help the world connect and communicate.

On Wednesday as he took the stage at the F8 developer conference in San Francisco we saw how successful he's been at bringing that vision to life, not just with apps that Facebook has acquired—such as WhatsApp and Instagram—but those the company built itself.

The company announced an expansion of its Messenger app, called Messenger Platform, making it a whole new communication system, with the potential for a range of partners and businesses to build on top of it.
