Facebook Addresses Messenger Rumors

If you pay any attention to Facebook, then your page likely was inundated with mass hysteria regarding Facebook Messenger's rather wide permissions requirement. FB dev Peter Martinazzi tries to set the record straight on a special page in FB and even includes some external sources to back his statements.

Like most other apps, we request permission to run certain features, such as making calls and sending photos, videos or voice messages. If you want to send a selfie to a friend, the app needs permission to turn on your phone's camera and capture that photo. We don't turn on your camera or microphone when you aren't using the app.
