To start answering this questions about Messenger active now one after the other, we would also like to let you understand the nitty gritty on how everything about being active or not on Messenger is.
The issue of a partner not being able to respond to messages by the other party has broken most social relationships on Facebook because they think they have either found someone else better than them, ignoring to reply their messages or cheating on them.
If you use an Android device, iPhone, Windows Mobile or any other smartphone ; they have a feature called background data sync.
This background data works with your smartphone together with any application that needs background data in order to push notifications.
So, as Messenger being an instant Messaging app, it need data to keep activities running in the background so that one can receive messages as soon they are sendt and delivered.
This happens to apps like email apps, WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter, news apps; they need data to keep you up-to-date.
In this way, most people would prefer their internet data to be turned on even when they are currently busy with work or using the phone as a working companion but not for chat. You will see them as active on Messenger but they are really active at the moment.
A situation when Messenger Active Now is a big mess
