So this used to be a great app. I think commercialism got ahold of the owner, though. Spammers are rampant, and it doesn't seem there's anyone getting to the root of it. Even worse is that ads have overrun the app to the point that after pretty much every action that's taken (sending a message, opening a conversation, reporting a spammer, blocking a spammer, etc) there's an ad. Very close to uninstalling.

Over the years, this app just keeps getting worse. It used to be a simple, clean messenger. Then they started shoving adds in your face, the app crashes and deletes almost everything, so you lose messages, and even contacts,... and now this whole "Live" business for streaming, which is shoved in your face so you can't even ignore it, and I see no option to turn it off. Seriously, this app has become annoying, and overly complicated. Oh, and now it's eating up A LOT of data.

For the last 2 months I have been having viewing profiles and sending some pictures (especially videos). I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app a number of times which seems to fix the problem for a few hours before it starts doing the same thing (along with deleting all conversations). There doesn't seem to be any help that seems to work to even find out what could be the problem.
