O.P. Plus! Facebook Messenger?
Hey Yuna...  where did this thing come from?

Did they not notice this kinda already exists with the same name?  The title of the page is "Messenger Plus Skins for Facebook Messenger" (and btw, it's Plus! not Plus), but it otherwise just seems to talk about an alternative client, presumably allowing skins.  Haven't seen any announcements about it.

Also, whilst we're at it...  Reimage Plus?  (Not to be confused with Plus! Image.)

Geez, is it Plus! or Plus - so much inconsistency...

And the installer sucks.

I got an error saying it requires Windows 7 (while I was attempting to install). This error should popup at the beginning. Then after the error I got the "almost done" screen... you guys are horrible programmers...

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".

Hey now... don't fix things like Yuna does!

The two quotes are from Whiz not I.

There was an anouncement about it a long while ago....

Probably.

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.

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....

It's "Plus!" of course :P
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.

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.
>Facepalm<

"Thank you for trying to install Facebook Messenger"...
lol

I mentioned it because it's in the Downloads drop-down on the Plus! website.
