Posted on

Ever since Fa­ce­book di­sa­bled the chat abi­lity on the mo­bile ver­sion of its web­site, it’s been a pro­blem for any­one who doesn’t wish to have Mes­sen­ger in­stalled on his or her An­droid smart­phone to use the Fa­ce­book chat.

How to start with transco­ding aka fai­rly sim­ple long ge­ne­ral transco­ding gu­ide
