Facebook is getting greedier by the day. Their goal seems to be that even the people who dislike Facebook to use their Messenger. So, Facebook is opening a Sign Up option via the Messenger app for the those who do not have a Facebook account.

This way, people can use the Facebook Messenger app without having a Facebook social account. The users will be able to sign up using their first and last name and their mobile number – and  of course, having installed the Fb Messenger app. Facebook is starting this trial in US, Canada, Peru, and Venezuela before going global.
