The secret ad-free Facebook site that’s hidden in plain sight

Facebook Messenger.com Hidden Site

Admit it: You use Facebook on your computer a lot, even when you’re not supposed to do it. And often, you use Facebook at work simply because it might be the quickest way to talk to or text your loved ones.

But what if I told you there’s a second website you can use for that purpose that’s hidden in plain sight and that Facebook is not really keen on promoting.

DON’T MISS: This iPhone 7 concept looks like something Apple may really release

As detailed by Business Insider, Messenger.com is a site that is basically a version of the Messenger app that’s been outfitted for desktop web browsers. You need your Facebook credentials to log in, and if you’re logged into Facebook it’ll automatically recognize you and let you proceed with the same username.

Mind. Blown.

The site is definitely one to bookmark if you want to use Facebook solely for communication purposes while at work or home. There are no ads and there’s nothing to suggest you’re using Facebook.com – and you’re not.

Instead, we’re looking at a simple three-sided layout that includes a list of your active conversations on the right, the current chat in the middle and an info area on the right that contains a link pointing to the Facebook profile of the current chat, as well as quick access to any photos you may have exchanged in the past. They’re all in one place, meaning you can download or forward them, and even hide them if you want.

In fact, the Messenger.com site looks like what you’d expect from a mobile experience. And yes, you can even initiate video or voice calls from the simple interface.

So go ahead, spread the word. Your friends will certainly appreciate it. According to Business Insider, Messenger.com is used by only about 70 million users each month, which is a tiny fraction of Facebook’s 1.44 billion users.
