Facebook Messages Icon Facebook Messages has always been regarded as one of the features users looked over when using Facebook. Not anymore. Mark Zuckerberg and Co have come up with what I believe is a winner of an enhancement for an already killer social networking platform. The new Facebook Messages looks to be a revolutionary step into Facebook’s integration of all your online interactions.

What makes this truly a great experience is it’s a step further in Facebook’s quest to make the web more personal. You can view texts, chats, emails all bundled together on Facebook… where most of us do our communication through anyways. So now you want to know how you can be invited? Check it out:

How to Request an Invite

Requesting an invite is easy: To request an invite and you will be brought to the Facebook Messages Invite Request Page. Once there you will see a button in the lower right hand side to request a message as seen in this image:

Request a Facebook Messages Invite

How to Upgrade the Facebook Messages after Invited

Awesome you got the invite, now once you’re in Facebook you will have to upgrade using the pop-up displayed on the main news feed page as displayed in this image:

Facebook Messages Upgrade Notice

Once you click on the “See What’s New” button you will be brought to the Facebook Messages preview page:

Facebook Messages Preview Page

How long does the Invite Take?

Unfortunately there’s no real telling when you’re going to get the invite. Typically, Facebook won’t keeping you too long and you should have the new service in no time. If you get yours in under 24-hours I’ll be impressed. It took a couple of weeks for most users to get theirs. Expect anywhere from 1-3 weeks for an invite to go. Please comment below on how long it to for you to receive yours.

Activate Facebook Email

Once you have upgraded your account you can begin integrating your email and text to you Facebook account. For more in depth instructions please refer to my article: How to claim your own facebook email address. The process is as simple as choosing an email address through the facebook’s built in email availability tool:

Facebook Email Choose

Activate Facebook Text Integration

To activate text your friend text messages choose a country and mobile carrier and click Next:

Facebook Text Messages Screenshot

Enter the confirmation number and click Activate Text Messaging.

Help, I need more info!

Facebook’s Help page has a thread that’s been started with some pretty good Q and A. Here’s a link to that: Facebook Help… Hope that helps some of you out!

Have any question? Please feel free to use the comments below and share this article with your friends. Again, the new Facebook’s Messages is going to be a widely used feature on Facebook (I venture to say even as much as the Newsfeed) and I suggest you take advantage of the early upgrade.

    I put in a request for an invite a few weeks ago, still nothing, I have also asked my son to invite me, as he has his upgraded and is on the same computer as I am. I went into his messages to view them and to try to send an invite to me, following the instructions FB gives to do this BUT… once in hsi messages there is NO PLACE where it says to *invite* a friend to upgrade!. Another friend tried to invite me and she also could NOT find where it say’s to invite a friend to upgrade… What’s the deal, are they doing something wrong, or am I gonna have to wait and wait and wait for FB to eventully ugrade me or send an invite?…(if the ever do)?. If you can invite me, please do so. My regular messgaging was fine up until a few days ago, now when I receive a messgage from a friend with a picture attached to it, I cannot open the picture, cannot view it. I can see the msg but not the picture, why is this?. I can also receive video’s just fine, BUT I simply cannot receive (open or view) a picture when it’s sent to me. Someone, please help!, I’m extremely frustrated, all I wanna do is be able to look at and view a picture when it’s sent to me in my FB messgages.

    This sucks. I have not gotten this Message/Chat thing and now there is an even newer Chat… I was able to upgrade it enough to be able to do video calling, but I still can’t do Group Chats or see my chat history in my messages. This is aggravating. I’ve been waiting for 2 months.

      Hang tight my friend, Facebook doesn’t purposely disable features for selected users.

    After reading everyones comments here, It seems that there is no possibility of upgrading Facebook messages. :[ The prospect of receiving an invite looks bleak :S 

    The question is, why doesn’t Facebook fix this problem? And another thing, it seems Facebook has over complicated the new/old messages, because I also read quite a few comments from people having issues sending photos, urls with thumb nails, videos, etc. Why don’t they address these issues and fix them ffs? Its so very irritating when you are not able to contact Facebook in any way also. GAAHH! D: 

    How many people here share my frustration!!??

    • http://www.wordimpressed.com Devin Walker

      I’m sorry for your frustration and I agree that Facebook should see why so many people are having problems upgrading and/or receiving invitations.

    okay i have a question:
    ive been getting increasingly frustrated that i havent been updated to the new messages, but then i thought.. what if i had an opportunity to upgrade to the new messages, but i never clicked “upgrade now” and completely forgot about it? if i somehow declined to upgrade at some point in the past, is that it? can i never get the new messages?
