Use Facebook Messenger Code: Improve Brand/Business presence


With the effectiveness and popularity of private media apps, it should be no surprise that most social media platforms are going all-in for private messaging, as it is an effective social media strategy to contect with users on a personal level.

Facebook has stepped up its game for brands/businesses to communicate with customers via the private, one-to-one messaging feature it provides on Messenger.

Connect using Messenger 

Over 900 million people are using Messenger every month out of which one billion messages are sent between people and businesses each month. This feature would allow businesses to build personal connections with the people who are interested in them.

Messenger Username/Link

Earlier Messenger usernames and links made it easy to find a person or business in Messenger. You can share your username or link with people or publish it to help them start a conversation with you.

Facebook Messenger Code 

Facebook has rolled out what it calls the Messenger Code - a series of dots and dashes encircling the profile picture. When someone scans one with their camera, it'll open the option to send them a message. Using your Messenger code to communicate through Facebook Messenger takes a little bit of know-how.
