Facebook Live Chat Support



With over 1.5 billion active daily Facebook/Messenger users, it seems natural to support your customers via Facebook Messenger Live chat on your website.


Facebook Live Chat is a quick and handy alternative for businesses and customers to chat with each other. Once the conversation is started in Facebook Messenger, the business or customer can respond again at any time without having to remain on the website. A business owner can be enjoying a coffee at their local cafe and still be available to quickly answer customer’s questions.

Messenger and similar apps are already the most downloaded and frequently used apps on the internet. Messaging is a essential part of our day to day lives. We can not go a day it seems without messaging our family and friends so why not message our favorite businesses as well?


Customer communication in the past was more formal requiring a phone call or email or in some cases a live chat on a website but like casual Fridays, messaging seems to be taking over.


Facebook Messenger Live Chat has some natural advantages over live chat:


  1. There is a permanent thread between customer and business that allows both to ‘re-connect’ easily at any time.
  2. The customer and business owner don’t have to be ‘at their desks’ to ask or answer support questions. Either can be at a café and can easily do their jobs.
  3. Messaging platforms are beginning to allow payments through Messaging bringing consumer satisfaction to the next level.
  4. Facebook Messenger will selectively allow ads to be sent to customers that have previously contacted the business on Messenger.


Note:  If your customers don’t have an account, Facebook will ask them to create an account automatically.
