    Correct. I checked and facebook messenger has always had this. I guess I just didn't notice before.

    I just have a general distrust for all things facebook. Since everytime they update the Android facebook app it turns on location settings, etc even though I have always had them turned off.

    For now I have uninstalled the facebook messenger app completely. So, now messages via facebook come in via a standard facebook alert in my notification bar. I can always install it if I find a need for it in the future.
