Don’t Shoot the Messenger [COMIC]

Human nature often makes us want to blame the bearer of bad news. But if you heard the latest shocking news from Facebook’s Messenger app, no one could blame you for being alarmed. Now Facebook will force users to use this app when sending people messages on the phone (instead of through the normal Facebook app). The rub is, Facebook Messenger intrusively asks permission to use your camera, contact lists, microphone and any other private data on your phone at any time.
