Earlier this month, Facebook made a move that sparked lots of controversy on the Internet. That’s a statement that’s been made about many Facebook moves over the years. But this time we’re talking about Facebook Messenger—a handy little smartphone app that gives users access to Facebook messages.
Facebook messages are private, like email or chat messages; they can only be seen by the people involved in, and invited to, the conversation. So messages are very different from public wall posts and status updates.
The Facebook Messenger app has been around for a while. Justin Seeley covered it very well in his Up and Running with Facebook course. What’s changed is that Facebook has made the move to require all users of the Facebook smartphone app to switch to Facebook Messenger to access messages. That means the only way to work with Facebook messages on an iPhone or Android is to install and use the Facebook Messenger app. But that’s only half of the story.
Our Design content manager Kristin Ellison takes on our 21-Day Drawing Challenge and lets you see the daily results.
Today Von challenged us to use the reference image below and change it to make it more dramatic.

Have you ever shut yourself in an unventilated closet for hours at a time during the hottest, most humid months of the year?
It’s fun—let me tell you.
And if you’ve watched any of my courses on lynda.com, you’ve probably heard my voice speak through the sweaty resilience that resulted from such a setup. But no longer.
Life is looking up, and it’s thanks to the life-changing addition of a WhisperRoom recording booth to my professional setup.

It’s hard to make a living as an independent songwriter in today’s music industry—and even more so if you’re not already established in the field.
When budgets are already tight, it’s tempting not to register with a PRO (performance rights organization) if you aren’t anticipating enough (or any!) radio play that could net you a royalty check.
But here’s a reality check for you: If you’re a serious songwriter, you really do need to register with a PRO if you ever expect to see a dime for your work.
