I clicked the submit button by accident before finishing the report; please feel free to delete the placeholder description and replace it with this:

AFAIK the Facebook messenger protocol only works with the Facebook messenger server (which is unreleased and proprietary so nobody can self-host it).
I also suspect it's horrifically insecure and not private, not to mention obsolete because numerous other well-designed libre messenger protocols exist.

If this package is kept so as to serve as a provider of interoperability/compatibility, then it should be added to the your-privacy blacklist.
