Facebook Messenger (or simply Messenger) is a messaging app developed by Facebook. The service has over 1.2 billion total users.


Facebook-related Integrations

The Facebook Messenger Channel has some unique features:

  • Facebook Messenger - a website chat widget using the Facebook infrastructure.
  • Facebook Page- sends a message to users who comment on Facebook Page posts.
  • Message Tag - sends a tagged message to contacts after the 24-hour messaging window.

Messaging Window

The Facebook Messenger Channel has a 24-hour messaging window. When a contact sends a message through the Facebook channel, you will have 24 hours to reply to them.

home INFO

Facebook Messenger's Messaging Window is now extended to 7 days because erxes has been selected to participate in Facebook HUMAN_AGENT tag Closed Beta program.

If you wish to send a message after 24 hours, your messages will be automatically tagged with HUMAN_AGENT and sent to the contact.

If you need to send a message to the contact after 7 days, you will need to send tagged messages to the contact.

home TIP

For more information, look at the page Message Tag.


Due to recent changes implemented by Facebook for pages and users in the European Union, the event reference will not be passed to our platform reliably by Facebook. Therefore, automation that requires an event reference as a trigger will not work for some Contacts as expected.
