Facebook's mission is to give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together. Through our family of apps and services, we're building a different kind of company that connects billions of people around the world, gives them ways to share what matters most to them, and helps bring people closer together. Whether we're creating new products or helping a small business expand its reach, people at Facebook are builders at heart. Our global teams are constantly iterating, solving problems, and working together to empower people around the world to build community and connect in meaningful ways. Together, we can help people build stronger communities - we're just getting started.

Messenger engagement has increased dramatically in terms of number of messages sent per active user. Messenger teams are focused on continuing to increase the user base and the number of mobile messages sent, and also largely focused on all the new product and feature development across the platform to engage all demographics (Visual messaging, Status, Realtime Communication, Expression, Groups, VoIP, Chat Heads, and Rich Attachment Types, like Selfies, Location, and Stickers.). We are evolving from a person to person platform into this much more robust platform where you can virtually do anything.
Messenger currently has 1.3 billion+ monthly active users. The scale of user impact here is tremendous. This team is responsible for user acquisition and retention strategy for Messenger which includes acquiring new users from FB, from other marketing channels, registration/login, needy user retention, contacts/connections and our Messenger Lite and emerging markets strategy.
