    Windows 8 Messenger App and Facebook - double posts


    It looks like this is a problem no one has encountered before.
    I use the built-in Messenger app to chat on Facebook. For some reason, I create double posts in the app when the other person's status is "available" for chat. However, if I message someone who isn't online on Facebook, I don't double post.
    These double posts aren't seen on Facebook's site, by the way. It's only me that sees it and is really annoying.

    Fixes:
    I've tried uninstalling, re-installing, signing out of my facebook on both People app and Messenger app then signing back in. I don't know what is causing it.

    Thanks all for reading

    are you saying that when you send your message in the messenger app, it appears in the messenger app twice?

    so it'd be like:

    him: how are you?
    you: hello
    you: hello

    Yes, that's what would happen dirtyvu. I don't know why.

    EDIT:
    I just got to microsoft's support forum, and for anyone who's having trouble with any of their metro apps, try running their troubleshooter found on the thread.

    Here's the original thread:
    Some or all of my Metro style apps fail to run. - Microsoft Community

    Works!!

    EDIT:
    Nevermind. Didn't work.

    EDIT:
    Haha can't even post on the microsoft forums about my question. LAME.

    EDIT:
    Well I don't know if it's the apps at all or if it's FB. I downloaded the IM+ app for my tablet pc and it's still double-posting on facebook chat

    I'm having the same problem. It's very recent, like a week. Every single message I send appears twice, but the other person only receive it once.

    I have the same issue. It started a few weeks ago and at the same time my windows phone started to either not get facebook chat messagaes at all or very late. I have posted this at microsoft's support forum under windows phone since my main concern is not getting the messages at all.

Hi People! I know the new Windows has a built in messenger system, but I think it's awful. I can't get it to use my MSN account, it will only use my microsoft account, which is not the same e-mail address, and even if I could get it to do what I want, I'll still miss my taskbar and the flashing...
