There has been a lot of noise about Facebook’s move to remove messaging from its main app and “force” people to use the Messenger app on mobile devices to send messages. Today, no less than four people on my Facebook feed made proclamations about not using the app. Here’s why you shouldn’t be freaking out.
After two and a half years of using the same web layout (which was a fairly boring, default Wordpress theme called Bueno), I decided it was high time this site received a makeover.
