Facebook Messenger Now Shows Who is Online and Other Improvements (iOS)

Facebook Messenger has been updated today with a handful of improvements. One of which is the ability to see who is online and who has the Facebook Messenger app installed on their device. This is a big feature which many users had requested Facebook include. Before, the app was more like an SMS type app where you wouldn’t really know if someone was online or not but now it’s more like a true IM type app.
