Facebook Messenger as a standalone app owned by Facebook, has
been discovered to be a great consumer of power and memory of smartphones.
Sometimes it occupies as much as 120MB of phone memory, most users even reports
higher figure than that.
How to solve these 3 Facebook Messenger problems

If you like me who hates Facebook Messenger standalone app
on his smartphone or tablet, simple bookmark its mobile site and activate push
notifications by allowing the site to do that if you wish to receive instant
messages. This process helps reduce consumption of internal storage space and
RAM, as well as saves your battery life.
Below are some problems attributed to the Facebook messenger
and tips on how to resolve them:
INABILITY TO SEND OR RECEIVE MESSAGES
Ever tried sending a message on Facebook Messenger and it
refused to deliver, no cause for alarm. The first thing to do is to check if
your app is up to date. If its up to date and it still refused to connect,
just try the mobile site. Occasionally, Facebook Messenger might experience
downtime in your location. Should it be the case, dont stress yourself, it would
definitely be restored.
SUDDEN DISAPPEARANCE OF SOME OR ALL OF YOUR MESSAGES
If you by accident deleted your messages, nothing can be
done about this. Just forget them. But if they are archived, then they are
retrievable.
To retrieve your archived messages, follow the steps below:
  • Go to the mobile or desktop site
  • Click on the Messages button
  • Then select See All > More > Archived (for desktop
    users) or tap on See All Messages, scroll to the bottom of the page, then press
    View Archived Messages (on the mobile site).
  • Then check if you can find your messages.
