Plus! Facebook Messenger? by whiz on 08-21-2012 at 04:38 PM
Hey Yuna... where did this thing come from?

And the installer sucks.

Facebook just uses the name "Messenger", but they could ban Plus! from using the Facebook name on their products.
That would require us to have heard ANYTHING from them other than "Yeah, it's meant to be like that", "it was like that when we got here" or "Look how good we are! We updated the software to work with a new version of WLM".
Seems to be a long standing trend...

Spunk thanks for quoting most of whiz's posts as me

Whoops, guess I can't blame Yuna for that one Fixed

The two quotes are from Whiz not I.

quote:There was an anouncement about it a long while ago....
I can't install the client (requires Win7), but as far as I know Yuna's Facebook Messenger client is nothing more than a souped up version of the official Facebook Messenger client, but with skins, etc (kinda like Plus! for Messenger - this is a very long standing goal btw, extend Plus! to other types of chat apps). Hence the similar name probably. But even if it is completely Yuna's own client, it wouldn't be that extraordinary either since there are other clients too to chat in Facebook.
quote:reimageplus has got nothing to do with Plus!. It isn't even anything related to chatting or whatever. The site doesn't even look anything similar to anything related to Plus! or Yuna...
There are gazzilions of products with 'plus' in their name, so tbh I completely fail to see the relevance and your point here....
quote:It's "Plus!" of course
But Nathalie also once explained somewhere that the "!" wasn't allowed in the name by Facebook or something like that. So I assume this naming error stems from there.
quote:What you run is actually a wrapper (just like it is with Plus!) which downloads the actual installer. It is right after downloading this actual installer that the error appears, thus at the beginning (of the actual installer), not during installing stuff... In a way it is understandable since the check _is_ actually done at the start of the actual installer....
But yeah, this set aside, that setup and installer sucks big time (they all do, the Plus!'s ones too)....
It also created a directory 'Babylon', albight empty, under the current account's 'Application Data' map AND under the general account's 'Application Data', even if you've opted out to install the Babylon toolbar. And this directory isn't removed after quiting the setup.
Just as the temp dirs created by the setup and installer aren't removed after quiting....
This is lol too: Click the X at the end of the setup and you'll get a message: "Installation cannot be cancelled at this time"... eventhough it is the _last_ screen of the setup with the 'done' button.
"Thank you for trying to install Facebook Messenger"...

Ah, I see. But nothing made by Yuna, but more advertising, sponsor/affiliate/partner stuff...
