    Look for the Facebook Messenger application.

    Scroll down to "Invite Friends", and tap it.
    A list of friends will appear who already use Facebook but have no idea about Facebook Messenger, which is a pretty convenient application for those who chat with people a lot.

Questions and Answers

How to invite people who are not friends?

How do I invite people on messenger who are not Facebook friends

You can message them from the Facebook desktop page but at this time you can't invite them to connect unless they message you back. That would show up in your Messenger and you could carry on the conversation. You could try searching for them at the top of your Messenger if you have ever interacted with them in the past also. Keep in mind, that if you are not Facebook friends, your message will be sent to their others folder.

Why does it keep saying this person isn't receiving messages from you right now?

It says this for every person I try to start a conversation with if they have the gray f sign and not the blue messenger sign

It means they either do not have the Messenger app, have logged out of it or it is a glitch and you can still message them when you click their name. In Settings of Messenger, you can opt out of keeping your chat head as available and also on the desktop can pick and choose who sees you in messaging.
