The Geek Beat: Facebook Messenger

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - In this edition of The Geek Beat, Ryan Ozawa and Burt Lum talk about the spin-off Facebook Messenger app. Although number one in app store downloads, it has the absolute worst ratings at the same time. The Geeks discuss why most people don't want to use two apps and "excessive permissions" that Facebook Messenger requests. 

The Geeks also go into depth about the split off of the 'check-ins' feature of Foursquare into its own separate app, called Swarm.
