Does texting through Facebook Messenger affect my data caps?

Episode 1413 (1:29:47)

Larry from Las Vegas, NV
Facebook Messenger

Larry wants to know if sending messages via Facebook affect his data caps. Leo says it's a data only program, so that would be yes. But it's probably not going to affect his data usage by much. Messages from Facebook aren't SMS. They are data based messages. SMS messaging is on the way out. This is why carriers are readily offering unlimited texting plans.
