If you are using Facebook Messenger for iOS, you should probably wait for some time before you update it (i.e. if you haven’t already done so).
According to various reports, though the app opens after the updates, it fades to black and crashes to the iPhone home screen. Tapping on notifications is also leading to the immediate crash for some.
According to The Verge, Facebook is aware of the issue and working on an update for the bad update, according to a spokesperson.

Version 170.0 is the buggy release, and the company has already submitted a fix (170.1) to Apple.
You can identify the version by tapping “more” in the updates tab of the App Store. (Update: the new version is now available in the App Store.)
The app isn’t completely broken, mind you; you’re still able to chat with folks when it successfully opens after a crash. But this is still a pretty nasty bug.
