How to Use Facebook Messenger on Your Desktop

Chances are if you've heard of Facebook, you’ve heard of Messenger. But, if the latter isn’t true, you’ll learn the best of the basics for using the application in this article.

In short, Messenger is the instant messaging extension of Facebook. The app was released in 2011 and has since rivaled the features and functionality of most other similar apps.

The Facebook Messenger app is designed to go well beyond standard text messaging by offering features like HD video calling, voice messaging, and group chat.

Don’t have a Facebook account, you say? No worries.

Optimizing Your Inbox With the Boomerang Extension

There’s a running joke around the Shift office that everyone is always productive—except when they’re not.


No, but seriously, unproductivity happens to the best of us. So, to better understand the root causes of our team’s (rare) unproductiveness, we took a poll.

Can you guess what the biggest culprit ended up being? Yep, email.

But not just email in general. Specifically, the inbox.
