The issue in GetHuman-apklappe's own words
Lately, my facebook messages do not get sent out: the symbol next to the message stays white, instead of turning blue and then into the picture of the other person. Sometimes the message does get sent out. More often, it gets sent out after a while (hours, days, months). Quite often, it never gets sent out. The issue is so big that I am currently avoiding facebook messenger whenever possible and I have been completely unable to contact some of my friends for a while. One time it happened that a message did not get sent out for two months and then I accidentally tapped on "invite to FB messenger" on my phone and suddenly the message did get sent out. My friend replied that she hadn't received this message until that moment. This problem occurred using WIFI from multiple sources. Update: The problem seems to be person specific to a degree. I've just sent the same message to several people and for some it got sent and for others it didn't.
GetHuman-apklappe did not yet indicate what Facebook should do to make this right.
