Facebook Messenger is one of the various Communication Channels you can use with SnapEngage to connect with your clients. Messages sent to your Facebook Fan Page or Facebook Business Page from your visitors will be directed to your agents’ Conversations Hub and will be handled as any other live chat coming from your website.

You can connect more than one Facebook channel on each widget.

2. Click on the “Add Facebook Account” and then “Log In” in order to sign into the official account connected to your Facebook page:

3.Once you “Log In” you will be asked to confirm your user details

4. Once logged in click on “Next”

Configuring Auto-Greetings and responding to offline cases

Please refer to the Communication Channels article for a guide on how to configure auto-greeting messages and how to respond to offline cases. Please be aware that for offline requests, Facebook imposes that the response needs to be sent within 24 hours of the visitor sending the first message.


Banning a visitor while they chat with you via Facebook messenger bans the Facebook user permanently.
