How can you make the "message" space bigger when using Facebook Messenger on Note 10.1?


AC Question

Hello... Does anyone know how to make the space in which the message you are writing bigger than the eye-watering one centimetre ribbon that I have now? In Facebook Messenger the threads take up nearly half the screen, the keyboard the other half and there is a tiny space where the text appears. It makes it practically impossible to edit the message, especially if like me you have big sausage fingers.

Any thoughts about how to make the other areas smaller and the writing space bigger?

Welcome to Android Central, and sorry for the wait! I doubt there is a way, because the Facebook app is not specifically designed for tablets--like may Android apps, it's designed to be scaleable to the screen size of the device, but it won't have actual tablet features. There would have to be a separate Facebook for Tablets app (which doesn't exist).

actually it would be extremely easy. just allow the user to change the area of the previous messages whic shares the area of the new message. But Facebook does not care about people and I really hope another application comes along that does care and takes away all of their Market.

I lost everything on my previous Facebook account when suddenly it was disabled and they will not give a reason and will not reply as to why this happened. Google did the same thing to me. So Google has turned evil as well as Facebook. I had many documents, contacts and photographs with Google and now they are all lost although I probably have most backed up somewhere. While you might worder what I did to cause this, I assure you it was nothing. Be prepared because it could happen to you.

These internet companies have gone Power mad. No regular company would get away with treating customers in this manner.
